the most ever paid for a Mini with doors, wasn't for a factory racer, not for the Monte Carlo Rally winner even... nope, it was for this one, made for Ringo Star with custom coachwork to fit the drum kit in the back

all the Beatles were given a Mini, but Ringo's was customized for the drum kit.

Beyond the useful rear hatch and a special folding rear seat, other unique features include hood vents, a Webasto sunroof, VW Beetle taillights, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, electric windows, a de-seamed body shell, and Manx alloy wheels.

He sold it to the Beatles manager, and now it's been bought by Geri Halliwell – the former Spice Girl, and wife of Red Bull F1 team chief Christian Horner and it cost her £102,300 to outbid every one else
