Verka Serduchka Saves Silver Shadow For The Nation!
Verka Serduchka (performed by Andrey Danilko) - Ukrainian pop-idol and silver winner of Eurovision 2007 - became the owner of a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 74, which previously belonged to Freddie Mercury.
During the recent press-conference Ms. Serduchka revealed her plans concerning the legendary purchase: "I bought the car not to drive it, but to preserve it to fans of the Queen!" She will give the Rolls-Royce to the museum of the Queen, that will be opened this year. Before that Mercury's Rolls-Royce will be exhibited during the show of Verka Serduchka & Band in Moscow (Russia) on 9 - 10 March.
Being the big fan of Freddie Mercury, Verka Serduchka said, that the only things that she will keep from the car are: a box of unused Kleenex Mansize and a perfume which remain from when the car was in Mercury's possession.
Verka Serduchka bought a 1974 Rolls-Royce at auction by Coys on January 12, 2013 as part of the Autosport International show at the NEC, Birmingham. The deal was made by telephone.
