THE Queen's Jaguar sportscar could be yours as it goes up for auction to raise cash for Red Nose Day.

One lucky winner could bag themselves the classic motor which once belonged to Queen Elizabeth II.

The iconic 2009 Jaguar X-Type Estate has been donated by CarFest – an event run by presenter Chris Evans.

It has a leather interior and is in an Emerald Fire colour.

To add to the vehicle's impressiveness, it has a sunroof, automatic transmission, electric windows and climate control.

Chris, who helped launch the event over a decade ago, said he's grateful to be able to donate the historic car.

He said: “I’m so grateful CarFest is able to support Comic Relief and I’m thrilled that we are able to donate this very special historic car, and so pleased to be able to share it with another enthusiast, especially for such an important cause.”

Samir Patel, CEO of Comic Relief, said the prize is "like no other" they've had before.

He said: “We are enormously grateful to Chris Evans and CarFest for this generous donation for Red Nose Day – this truly is a prize like no other we have ever been able to offer our supporters.

"This is an extraordinary opportunity to own a real piece of history and will be such a special prize for the lucky winner.
