Rare shell found on an exclusive Caribbean hideaway reveals an amazing tale from sixties high society, involving a beautiful British model and two of the richest men in the world.<br />
<br />
The skeleton of a E-Type Jaguar with a fascinating tale from the super rich world of the 1960's jet set has been rediscovered. <br />
<br />
Holidaymaker, Clive Edwards, 42, stumbled across the The 1962 3.8 Roadster in an old garage while visiting Jamaica last year. <br />
<br />
After a brief negotiation with the owner he paid under £2,000 for the dilapidated vehicle and shipped it back to the UK.<br />
<br />
After identifying the chassis number and contacting Jaguar, Clive discovered the 50 year old wreck was, in fact, bought for Princess Nina Aga Khan by her besotted husband as a present in 1962. <br />
<br />
She had had it shipped to her own private island off Jamaica, along with two black panthers bought for her by first husband, billionaire industrialist Heinrich Thyssen.<br />
<br />
Auctioneer James Denison from Brightwells said the car will cost upwards of £100,000 to restore but afterwards it could be worth £250,000.
