Bono's cars

looking for pictures of Bono's cars. I've heard a few stories over the years, owning some hearse type ride back in mid-80's, more recently talking about owning Maserati, and i think while he was re-couping his back this summer he and guggi were out riding in a silver bmw(perhaps this was a rental). I think there some stories out there of fans even getting rides in his car.

Post any pictures

I don't think he actually bought this one, but you never know.

For a notoriously bad driver, he doesn't park half bad.





These are from the same moment as Comet's pic:



And the fan that got a ride in his car is a member on here, but I haven't seen her in a long time. Her name is Melpop and she's also from the Famous elevation era The Fly video where Bono dragged her on top of him. She and her friend went to HQ a few years back and it was really bad weather, so Bono offered to drive them to their hotel. And they apparently made it back alive, too!

I can't find Melpop's pic right now, perhaps it's still in the respective thread somewhere in the depths of PLEBA. I think it was taken in his old Mercedes, with the white interior.

Next summer, look out Maserati's on the road in Dublin (highly doubtful, him being on the road for 360 again) I'm going to hunt you down!!

does anyone have the interview where he's driving on the wrong side of the road and says something like "It's ok, they know me here"?

Ah yes, thank you! I actually have this favourited so I don't know why I didn't remember - although the smoking/staring/scruff part of the interview distracts you from the rest I think

It's actually just 2 parts. I uploaded the second half twice thinking there were 3 parts, but it's just 2 I think I took the wrong piece down now so it won't be so confusing. You should only see the 2 correct parts now. Sorry for the confusion.
