Austin Powers Jaguar up for sale

Oh behaaave! The iconic Jaguar E-Type driven by Austin Powers in The Spy Who Shagged Me is up for sale.

The infamously nicknamed "Shaguar" is a 1970 Series 2 E-Type complete with Union Jack paintjob both inside and out, and was one of only two cars used in the cult hit film.

The car was fully restored before filming began in 1999 and was driven just over 10,000km during production. Most of its mileage was racked-up during promotional work in the US, which is also why the steering wheel is on the left.

The Jag's 4.2-litre inline six-cylinder engine originally put out 195kW and went from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds, but with age comes fatigue, so expect the 42-year-old's performance to be more like that of a Toyota Camry nowadays.

The E-Type is described as being in "good condition" by the owner and also comes with a Belgian registration (handy!) and a certificate of authenticity from the film company.

The Belgian car collector is reportedly selling it because, just like Austin himself experienced, too many ladies were drawn to the car — something that didn't sit well with his wife.

The Shaguar is currently listed with Dutch specialists ER Classic Cars for a smashing $112,000. Maybe Prince Charles should buy it as a gift for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, what do you reckon?
