Ahead of its time - revolutionary British invention from the swinging sixties that first put the wind in your hair.<br />
<br />
This unique Daimler sports car from 1963 features the worlds first electric roof - that enabled motorists to open up the roof even when travelling at 100 mph.<br />
<br />
The 1960 Daimler SP250 is a one-off prototype and was 30 years ahead of its time - the first car to have a working retractable roof after more than 5,000 man hours and £30,000 were spent on it.<br />
<br />
It has been in the same family for 56 years since it was bought new and is now being sold at Bonhams Goodwood Revival on September 10 with a £70,000 estimate.
