A 1965 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Coupe once owned by John Lennon is scheduled with be sold at Bonhams' Paris sale of Motor Cars at the Grand Palais, February 5, 2011.

The car was hand-picked by Lennon, after he got his driver's license for the first time, in 1965.

According to Lennon biographer Philip Norman, several luxury auto dealers in the Weybridge area, "jammed the road outside Kenwood's security gates with Maseratis, Aston Martins, and a Jaguar XK-E." But Lennon chose the £2,000 light blue 300-horsepower, 4.0-liter, V12 Ferrari. He owned the car for less than a year.

According to the auction house, the 330 GT has undergone a complete restoration and is expected to fetch $180,000 or more next month.
