Previously registered under Beckham’s personal plate ‘DB1001’, the V8 Volante was often spotted by paparazzi in the UK. Immediately recognisable by its gleaming metallic paint, the luxurious car would be seen regularly cruising along West London’s streets.

The Beckham’s held on to the Volante for 15 years before selling it in 2018. David even shipped it over to Madrid during his time with Real Madrid football club, showing a clear fondness for this particular model.

Auto Trader’s, Rory Reid, said: “We know David Beckham is a bit of a petrol-head, owning cars ranging from Bentley’s and Rolls-Royce to, of course, Aston Martins. This AMV8 Volante is a gorgeous classic, so I’m not surprised he held on to it for so long. It’s cool to know someone in the public can now buy this car – well as long as you’ve got half a million spare of course – just by heading to the Auto Trader website.”
