Bonhams is set to auction off a 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2-liter XKE Roadster once owned by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Diana Ross. The sale will take place Aug. 19 at the Quail Lodge and Golf Club in Carmel, California. Purchased new by Ross and registered in her name in Detroit, Michigan, in October ’67, the car is fully documented and certified by Jaguar Heritage. It’s in expertly-restored condition and features the original color combo of opalescent golden sand, with black interior and soft top cover.

Pre-auction estimates for the car put it between $290,000–$320,000. Take a visual tour of the car below. At the bottom, watch Diana Ross and The Supremes doing their 1967 No.1 hit single, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” (which probably helped pay for the car). Preview the lot here.
