A 1965 Jaguar XKE 4.2L Series I Roadster that Sir Elton John formerly owned just fetched around $130,000 (£82,140) at a recent Oxford, England auction. The British roadster was purchased by Elton John back in 1987 before he sold it at an auction in 2001 alongside other vehicles he owned.

Even though it’s obvious that the Jaguar got the amount it did because it was once owned by the famous artist, it’s also hard to not admire how immaculate and beautiful it is. It was last restored back in 1979, so it’s almost a miracle what great condition it is after all these decades. The classic 1965 E-Type Jaguar has a 4.2L with 265-hp mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
