From Hitler’s limo to Bonnie and Clyde’s death car, here are the tales behind when history’s most famous vehicles go to auction.

If you're a fan of history and a fan of cars, it's worth paying attention to the auction block, where some of the coolest and most important cars from history are sold. Case in point, John Lennon's 1965 Ferrari 330 GT is back on the market. The blue Ferrari was purchased for Lennon by his bandmates shortly after he got his driver's licence.The Ferrari has quite a bit of history. It has traded hands several times, was painted red, but was restored during the '80s to its original shade of blue. The car's present owner placed it up for auction in 2011, but withdrew it as he couldn't bear to part with it.Lennon's first Ferrari is expected to fetch somewhere between $280,000 and $340,000 according to auction house Bonhams when it hits the block this July. It's one of many famous cars, but hardly the first to attract attention. From Hitler's limo to Bonnie and Clyde's death car, here are the tales behind when history's most notorious vehicles go to auction.Related links:Is this the world's most expensive car accident?World's craziest car creations
