Freddie Mercury, singer/songwriter for the band Queen and rock icon, owned many cars but perhaps his most lavish was the 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The luxury car was produced in Great Britain in various forms from 1965-1980 and was the first Rolls-Royce to use a monocoque chassis.
Because he didn’t have a driver’s license, Mercury relied on his three drivers, Peter Jones, Graham Hamilton, and Gary Hampshire, to chauffeur him around. He was reportedly a nervous passenger and always made certain that his seat belt was fastened before the vehicle would take off.
The Silver Shadow includes a customized Kleenex Mansize Tissue Box that remains unused to this day. The car was auctioned on ebay on October 7, 2005 and had just 5,000 miles.
