CALL OF THE WILD AS JAGUARS GATHER AT CLASSIC CAR AUCTIONS image

Classic Car Auctions (CCA) sale on the 23rd and 24th March, at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show will see a large variety of Jaguars being offered for sale, from modern luxury to classic style.

The auction will see over fifteen Jaguars with some wonderful examples of the XJS, 340, XJ8 and the classic E-Type being offered.

Leading the charge is a 1970 E-type Series 2 roadster in silver, with an incredible low mileage of just 26,100 miles, which is believed to be correct according to a respected marque expert. This car is a left hand drive model, which is unrestored and largely original and presented in sparkling condition winning the Concours d’Elegance at the Jaguar Club North America. The car is accompanied by its heritage certificate, history file and concours trophies. The estimate for this car is £50,000 to £60,000.

The Jaguar Mark 2 was made famous by the TV series Inspector Morse and CCA have for auction a lovely Mark 2 Jaguar 340, one of the last editions of this model. This is a 1968 3.4 and has been in the same ownership for the last 24 years. The car was subject to a bare metal strip and repainted in Connaught green and fully retrimmed in 1990 with a green short pile wilton carpet and magnolia and green piped seats. In 2015 – 2017 the car was treated to a full mechanical and electrical restoration, including the engine, by JLR Classic. This car has been maintained to a high standard and been kept in dry storage for the last few years. This is a great stylish British classic to own and is estimated at £15,00 to £18,000.

If you fancy something more modern and elegant, how about this one owner from new 1999 Jaguar XJ8. A fabulous investment here for a prospecting collector, as this car has only 12,300 miles on the clock and comes with an extensive history file. Presented in cardinal red, with a light mushroom leather interior and accompanied by a selection of Jaguar branded clothing and images of its production, this is one elegant and stylish Jaguar for an estimate of £8,000 to £10,000.

The Jaguar XJS was marketed as a luxury grand tourer and CCA have this lovely 1990 5.3 V12 convertible in signal red with magnolia hide interior to get you purring. This particular car has been impeccably maintained and comes with an extensive history file and a Jaguar Heritage certificate. Last service by Jaguar Classics in March 2018 and benefitting from some subtle upgrades, this XJS is completely unrestored and has just 34,620 miles from new and now being offered for an estimate of £16,000 to £20,000.

If you are a Jaguar enthusiast and looking for your next investment or addition to your collection, then Classic Car Auctions might just have your next purchase.

Gary Dunne from CCA commented “I am very pleased with the selection of Jaguars we have for our sale next week. E-Types are always a popular car to sell and we get to see them in a variety of conditions which makes them available for a wider group of potential purchasers. This Series 2 is a great example. We are also very lucky to have a number of low mileage examples of more modern Jaguars which may go on to be future classics. Lots to choose from if you are a Jaguar enthusiast.”
