The Royal Mail is celebrating British motoring history with two sets of stamps featuring some the best cars and vehicles ever produced in this country.
The 1961 Jaguar E-Type, 1963 Aston Martin and 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow are pictured on three first-class stamps, while three £1.28 stamps carry images of a 1962 MG, 1968 Morgan and 1976 Lotus Esprit.
Renowned car photographer James Mann took the pictures of the six privately-owned classics that are among the best models the British car manufacturing industry has ever produced, according to the director of stamps and collectibles at Royal Mail, Andrew Hammond.
Also available is a set of four stamps graced by Britain's best motoring "workhorses", theRoyal Mail 's own Morris Minor van, the Austin FX4 as a London taxi, a Ford Anglia police car and a Land Rover used by the Coastguard. All the stamps are on sale from Monday.
Mr Hammond said the Royal Mail is delighted to remind people of the classic cars when they drop through the nation's letterboxes this year.
