Beckham To Broom Bikes and Bentleys in Britannia
Soccer and celebrity superstar David Beckham is clearing out his stable of motorcycles and luxury cars – purportedly worth more than $800,000. The current member of the LA Galaxy and former England captain plans broom two Bentleys, a Range Rover Sport, a BMW 645, his Lamborghini Gallardo and three Harley-Davidsons.
The Beckhams have made a bit of a splash in Los Angeles and sources say Beckham is planning to sell off the vehicles as they now sit idle at his mansion in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, UK.

So what’s the Beckham Stamp of Approval worth when applied to vehicles?
Last year Beckham auctioned off a Porsche 911 Carrera – on eBay no less – for $217,000, and a BMW M3 that went for $143,000 (which seems like a lot considering he bought the car for $70,000 eight years earlier back in 1997).
