All you Lady Gaga fans and Bad Romance lovers out there, it's time for a real poker face: the bright red Rolls-Royce, known to be the only car ever owned by the American pop celebrity, is to be on auction. Yes, it could be yours, provided you're willing to part with a lot of cash.

The starting bid for the beautiful car in perfect shape will be £30,000 and the car will go under the hammer on 17th of May. The auction is being held at Julien's Auctions of California, but it's actually taking place in New York. If you want to check the Corniche out, it will be on display at the Hard Rock Cafe located in Times Square throughout the week.

Made in 1990, the three-speed two door was bought by the American pop-star five years ago and the title certificate for the motor is registered to her full name - Stefani Germanotta - and father, Joseph.

We`ll remind you that the Corniche was originally development based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, with the two door variants of that model marketed as the Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward two door fixed head coupe & drop head coupe. The model was assembled and finished at Mulliner Park Ward as continuation of the 1965 Silver Shadow coupe and 1967 Drophead, with the Corniche name applied in March 1971. The Corniche was also sold as a Bentley, though that model became known as the Continental in 1984.

Why would Lady Gaga sell her car? No, she`s not broke. According to the source, the money from the sale of the car will be given to MusiCares, a charity for struggling artists.
