John Lennon’s psychedelic Summer of Love Rolls-Royce Phantom V is heading back to Britain to celebrate the marque and the 50th anniversary of Beatle’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. It is one of seven historic Rolls-Royce Phantoms belonging to influential figures – including dance legend Fred Astair, speed record breaker Sir Malcolm Campbell and war hero Field Marshal ‘Monty’ Montgomery – being brought together to celebrate the launch of the new eighth generation Phantom.The launch will occur in London’s Mayfair on Thursday next week and the brightly painted John Lennon is on loan from current owner the Royal British Columbia Museum in Canada.

It will travel from Canada to London to join ‘The Great Eight Phantoms’ – A Rolls-Royce Exhibition, at Bonhams on Bond Street, an area visited regularly by Lennon in the late 1960s in this very car.

Members of the public will be able to see it there from 29 July to the 2 August.

Lennon took delivery of his car on on 3 June 1965 – the same day that astronaut Edward H White left the capsule of his Gemini 4 to become the first American to walk in space.
