A Rolls Royce once owned by former Hollywood star Brigitte Bardot is set to go under the hammer in Paris later this month (Feb14). The French actress bought the 1962 Silver Cloud II from singer Charles Aznavour in 1970 and had the luxury vehicle painted white. Although there are no pictures of the And God Created Women star with the car, which has since been given a new blue paint job, her original registration documents will be included in the sale. The lot is expected to fetch $512,000 (£320,000) when it goes up for sale at Artcurial Motorcars auction house on Friday (07Feb14). Auctioneer Matthieu Lamoure tells Britain's Daily Express, "It's perfect for car collecting enthusiasts. The story behind its previous owners is truly unique." Bardot sold the car to designer Charles Jourdan in 1972, who then painted it its current hue.
