A freak fire during a respray has left this classic E-type Jaguar in tatters.<br />

Hot wheels...<br />
<br />
A vintage E-type Jaguar has been put up for sale for £32,000 after a freak fire during a respray left it in tatters.<br />
<br />
The classic open top caught fire after its fuel leaked and came into contact with sparks created by welding.<br />
<br />
It had been with its owner since 1986 but but he has now seen his classic vehicle completely ruined.<br />
<br />
It is thought he had been contemplating a respray for some time before finally making the decision to go through with the work.<br />
<br />
The disaster occurred as the team of mechanics were disassembling the Jaguar ready to paint, when when one of them accidentally cut through its fuel line.
