Elton Johns Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster auctions in Oxford, UK
The Series 1 4.2-litre is considered the best E-Type of them all and Eltons car is auctioning in the UK
This red 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Litre Roadster once belonged to Sir Elton John, and it's going under the hammer at a Collectors' Motor Cars and Automobilia sale in Oxford on March 3.
The car is estimated to sell for 50,000-70,000 and was bought by Sir Elton in 1987.
Sir Elton used to refer to the E-Type as 'OK Elton' due to its number plate OKE 1. The plate was worn throughout his ownership, and will be sold with the car in the UK auction.

This car's bodywork was further slimmed and refined. The result is one of the world's most attractive cars, and an icon of the 1960s.
What's more, in many people's eyes, the Series 1 4.2-litre is the best E-Type of them all.
