If the motor itself wasn't a catch, the sale includes a signed famous number 7 shirt Becks wore during a Champions League tie.

It is signed on the reverse "Best Wishes David Beckham" and is expected to make between £4,000-6,000.

The motor also includes an original V5 signed by Victoria Beckham and has only 45,000 miles on the clock.

A Mullock's Auctioneers spokesman said: "A top of the range vehicle from Ford at the time, the Lincoln was considered the showpiece model and one that was worthy of celebrity status.

"This particular model is loaded with luxury extras from a numeric code entry to front doors, to a roof mounted DVD player, heated seats, power pedals and much more.

"No expense was spared in order to ensure that the restoration was of a very high standard.

"The chrome wheels were replaced some years previously but every effort was made to source appropriate American replacements.
