Freddie loved his cars although he never got driving license since it made him bored.⠀

Freddie owned a 1950 Studebaker Champion, designed by Raymond Loewy, it was used in cargo carriers and tanks during World War II.⠀

He also owned a Daimler Limousine, it was bought by Freddie as Queen started becoming more successful and this kind of car was used by Swedish, Danish and English royal families.⠀

The Daimler Limousine was replaced by a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and it was of course driven by a chauffeur since Freddie didn’t have his license. His car was finished in light grey, with grey leather interiors and wood trims, and featured a cassette player and an in-car telephone. Latest tech back in the day! It was later sold at auction by Coy’s.⠀

In 1986 Freddie purchased a Mercedes Benz 420 SEL and quickly became his favorite car. It was later sold by Sotheby’s in 1996, but was abandoned by its new owner. It waited and rotted in a work site before being found by Ross Waite.⠀

When Freddie bought an apartment in New York, he also bought a Lincoln Town Car, a go-to luxury American car.⠀

And last but not least, Freddie also owned a Range Rover V8 Convertible.⠀
