The car formerly belonged to Ivor Arbiter, the graphic designer who created The Beatles' logo.

It spent well over 30 years outside, but is in original condition - making it extremely valuable.

James Good, a spokesman for Coy's, told the MailOnline: "This wonderful Series 1, 3.8 E-Type is in original condition, with matching numbers and has never been restored.

"The car needs a total restoration but it has all the ingredients to make a superb car - this is a true rarity.'
