London: A vintage sports car once owned by James Bond creator Ian Fleming is set to fetch USD 195,000 at an auction.

The made-to-order AC Aceca Coupe was bought brand new by Fleming in 1962, and is one of only six existing models in the world, reported Contactmusic.

It has a top speed of 130 miles-per-hour and is fitted with a radio and seat belts, unlike standard vehicles of the `60s.

The car will be sold by auctioneers Bonhams in West Sussex, England later this month.

"The value comes really from its rarity, but it`s nice to hang a famous name to it," said a Bonhams spokesman.
