A Russian businessman, who once represented the Ukraine at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, has snapped up Freddie Mercury’s Rolls-Royce at auction.
Andrey Danilko, who performed as drag queen Verka Serduchka, paid over $118,000 for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow ’74 at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, England.
Danilko – who, as Serduchka, finished second at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest – is planning to donate the car to a Queen museum.
Ironically, Mercury never actually drove the car because he didn’t have a license.
