Elton John's Jaguar E-Type for sale

A lovely red classic Jaguar E-Type once owned by the inimitably flamboyant Elton John is up for auction. The car, once named as the best ever made by a little know car journalist called Jeremy something-or-other, is expected to fetch up to £70,000 when Bonhams put it under the hammer in March.

However, its pop star provenance hasn't really helped with the price, because its current owner may have to swallow a £30,000 loss - he paid £81,000 for it at a Christie's auction arranged by the Candle In The Wind singer in 2001. The car's official reserve price is £50-70,000.
