Purr-fect some of the finest selection of Jaguars to be auctioned by Classic Car Auctions


o An incredible low mileage Jaguar E-type at 11,800 miles
o Long term stored and low mileage Jaguar Mark 2 3.4
o A glorious Jaguar XJS V12 convertible and a future classic XKR

Classic Car Auctions are heading to the Warwickshire Event Centre in a weeks time with their largest catalogue ever which include some of the finest Jaguars being offered.

Never ceasing to amaze, just when you think you have seen something truly special then weeks later something else appears. In this case a 1969 E-type with what is believed to be a correct 11,800 miles, followed by a 1961 Mk2 3.4 with 15,000 miles. If it something more modern that you are considering, then a 1991 XJS Convertible or at the top end a future classic is the XKR from a private collection of Jaguars.

This 1969 E-type was supplied new to British Leyland New York before returning to the UK in 2014 where it underwent extensive restoration to a very high standard and was converted to right-hand-drive. Amazingly this car’s mileage is 11,800 miles and a letter in the substantial history file from one of the earliest owners seems to confirm this. Estimated at £60,000 to £70,000 this Series 2 manual 4.2 Roadster in Primrose Yellow is certainly going to attract attention and coming with a hardtop as well as new mohair hood, this car is ready for all of the British weather.

The Mark 2 Jaguar, made famous in the TV series Inspector Morse, is such a classic British car and treated with fondness. Could this be why this car, when purchased new and residing in South Africa, was stored by the first owner for 24 years. As a possible result of this long term storage the car has just 15,000 unwarranted miles on the clock but due to its history could be genuine. When the car came out of hibernation in 2012 it underwent restoration with a photographic record and gained a Heritage Certificate, now estimated at £20,000 to £25,000.

The Jaguar XJS was facelifted under the ownership of Ford and this 1991 V12 Convertible is one of those cars, featuring the wrap-around rear lights and slightly less chrome than its predecessor. These versions are very desirable and this car is in stunning condition having just arrived from a warmer climate. Estimated at £17,000 to £20,000 presented in Radiant Red and a black interior it has just 41,299 warranted miles. It will be UK registered in time for its first UK owner.

Simon Langsdale Classic Car Auctions Specialist commented: “We have sold a few this year, in March we sold a very similar car with similar mileage and almost identical in colour for £26,000, so this XJS will sell well, and they are definitely going up in value.”

The final car in our Jaguar selection is the 2010 XKR. A facelifted model which came with the rotary gear selector and a 5.0-litre supercharged V8. This particular car was bought five months after it was first registered by its second and only owner who then added it to his private collection of Jaguars. With 31,000 warranted miles and a great service history, this car is estimated at £26,000 to £29,000 and is possibly going to be a future classic styled by the now-famous Ian Callum.

Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions auction manager commented: “This selection is just wonderful, the E-type and the Mark 2 are cracking cars and will give the new owners so much pleasure. The XKR is a bruiser of a Jaguar and with effectively one owner will be a great purchase.”

“We are very proud of the Jaguars we offer, we sell a lot of cars from this manufacturer and achieve very good results regardless of their conditions and with plenty of other Jaguars in the sale there is certain to be one for the enthusiast and collector.”

Viewing takes place on Friday 2nd August from 10am to 6pm with the auction getting underway on Saturday the 3rd from 10.30am.
