Ferrari 412 Elton John + Jason Kay

Even the greatest connoisseurs can have moments of madness. How else can you explain the presence of a 412 in this list. The least Ferrari-like Ferrari ever built, it looks like a 1970s Lotus Esprit with a hangover. Jeremy Clarkson described this car as being “awful in every way” and he was pretty much bang on. Even with the provenance of Sir Elton’s ownership, it went for under £43,000 at auction.

Update 11-5-2020:

This is the one he owned. A black/cream auto (originally prugna, but he didn’t like the colour).

However, the bronze manual pictured in the GQ article was once owned by Jason Kay of Jamiroquai.
