Fans of Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson might want to make plans to be in the UK next weekend. On August 24, Anglia Car Auctions in King's Lynn is auctioning off Clarkson's black 1999 Jaguar XJR as part of its classic sale. According to the auction house, the Jag was "originally the daily drive" of Clarkson and has had one registered owner since.

Clarkson's former ride clocks in at 93,000 miles and has an estimated price of 2,500 to 4,000 pounds. At roughly $3,300 to $5,300 in US dollars, that could be quite a steal for a hardcore Jeremy Clarkson fan. And with a supercharged 4.0-liter V8 engine and lavish interior, it's a luxury sport sedan lover's dream.

This isn't the first time Clarkson has crossed paths with Anglia Car Auctions. Back in 2009, he and fellow Top Gear stars James May and Richard Hammond made an appearance at another vintage auction to buy vehicles for a future segment of the show.

      I actually prefer the classic styling of Jaguars of Old, if they had come out with that Italian vision protoype of a new Jaguar I would of been first in line

      I would not buy a car Clarkson has owned. James May absolutely, but not Jezza.

      Why would anyone want to buy a car that Jeremy Clarkson has owned. Have you SEEN the way this guy drives/treats cars...?! Then again, maybe he only treats OTHER PEOPLE'S cars that way...

      I'll bid -$1,000 - The auction house will have to pay me to take it (to the crusher).

      It'll go for far less than that, if the bidders learn just how much the interior reeks of old man farts.
