Rolls Royce bonnet signed by Paul McCartney, Bono, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Katy Perry etc.

Hi Everyone,

I bought this Rolls-Royce Coupe bonnet signed at the 2008 EMA awards from MTV last year and was just wondering about the potential value of it if ever I were to sell it in the future? It is contained within a wooden frame with inbuilt lighting and photos of all of the signers signing. I didn't pay a huge amount for it so I'm not expecting thousands and thousands. 

It is signed by (deep breath):

Sir Paul McCartney (signature approx: 35cm (13 inches) long with doodled face)

Bono (with sketch and "I still want my MTV 2008" inscribed) 


Kelly Rowland 

Solange Knowles

Katy Perry

P!nk ("XOXO" with skating boy sketch)

Kanye West (with broken heart sketch)

Take That (minus Robbie Williams with Take That logos drawn. Gary Barlow adds "Love")

Grace Jones 

The Killers (Brandon Flowers using a sketch of flowers as a surname)

The Sugababes

Kid Rock

Estelle (with sketch of dress she was wearing at the awards)

Craig David

Anastacia (with smiley face)

Perez Hilton ("Drive safely... And in STYLE! XOXO")

Travee McCoy (with graffiti style "Travee")

The Wombats (with sketch of the band, a heart and "Thank you very much + practice safe sex!")

The Rasmus (Lauri Ylonen)


Tokio Hotel

Any help would be much appreciated!

All the best,


P.S Sorry about the sizing of the images, it's only my second post and I haven't quite worked it out yet!

If it were mine and i were selling it, id be emailing Rr dealers!

My thinking as well, Paul. I wonder if you stick it on a cheaper car would it look like a pickguard? ;)

Lol, very funny!

At least the dealerships have room and money for something like this.

Great idea!

I think it would fit perfectly in Jay Leno's garage.

Absolutely ! It's a speciality! One off item!

Though I do have an autograph from Jay Leno, unfortunately I can't claim to know him well enough to sell it to him! I know what you mean though, it would look great next to that tank car he created!

He has at least 150 antique and classic cars. Maybe 100+ motorcycles. 

I remember seeing a programme about it actually, absolutely amazing collection.

Will the lights cause the piece to fade?

That's another thing I was wondering about. It's back-lit so not too much of an issue I wouldn't think? I don't put the lights on regularly though so it shouldn't be too bad. 

Here's the 2015 eBay listing by MTV Staying Alive. The images aren't available anymore:

This is their description:

A mounted bonnet and grille of a Rolls Royce Phantom, set in a high gloss rosewood case, this unique piece of art features 30 signatures from some of the most talented and renowned stars of the music world including Sir Paul McCartney, Bono, Grace Jones, Take That and Beyonce. Each side has illuminated photos of the stars signing the piece making this an outstanding and truly remarkable item.
