Fleming's rare Aceca to go on sale

A 1962 AC Aceca Coupe once owned by James Bond creator Ian Fleming is expected to fetch between £100,000 and £130,000, when it goes under the hammer at the Goodwood Revival racing festival in West Sussex.

The two-seater sports car - one of only six surviving Ford-powered Acecas in the world - is believed to have been bought by Mr Fleming from the Thames Ditton Factory in Surrey, in the year he finished The Spy Who Loved Me.

The dark blue car sporting, a red leather interior, is said to be in excellent condition, despite changing hands several times. It was refurbished recently.

Also on offer at the auction at Goodwood House is a 1988 Jaguar XJ-S V12 convertible, once owned by the Duchess of York.

The soft-top, which underwent a complete refurbishment in September 2007, is expected to fetch £20,000 to £24,000.
