Luxury Rolls Royce belonging to late The Who bassist John Entwistle goes up for auction
A luxury Rolls-Royce specially customised for the The Who's late bassist John Entwistle has been put up for auction.

The brown-coloured 1980 Silver Shadow was especially converted from a standard saloon into a makeshift estate by a private engineer so Entwistle had room to get his Irish wolfhound dogs in the back. After the late bassist died from a heart attack in Las Vegas in 2002 the vehicle was sold by his family to a Scottish laird who has now decided to put it up for auction.

A spokesman for Bonhams, which is handling the sale, told the Daily Mail: "There was never an official factory-bodied estate version of the Shadow but that did not deter those wealthy enough from commissioning their own.

"The car has been kept at an estate in Perthshire, Scotland where it was mainly used for grouse shooting, and has been garage stored in a "bubble" to maintain ideal air temperature."

The vehicle, which has a 6,750cc V8 engine, cream leather upholstery and a mahogany dash and steering wheel, is expected to sell for between £12,000 and £16,000 when it goes under the hammer next month (September_.
