Bid on Elton's Old Jag
The popstar’s 1965 sports car is expected sell for up to £70,000 when it goes under the hammer at Bonhams in Banbury Road. The vehicle is the highlight of the classic car sale on March 3.
Sir Elton bought the car in 1987 and nicknamed it ‘OK Elton’ as its number plate is OKE 1.
He sold it in 2001 to a private collector.
Rob Hubbard, senior specialist at Bonhams, said: “This is a fantastic example of a 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1, which has been carefully looked after since its original purchase and is in excellent condition.
“We are expecting much interest from both national and international clients, particularly as a result of the E-Type’s provenance.” - Oxford Times
