A collapsed 1960s Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupé, which broke apart 25 years ago, sold for more than $ 104,800 at auction. This is nine times what was previously estimated by the auction house.
The seller bought the car in 1969, but drove it to a tree in a rainstorm near Hull in 1996. The owner was unharmed and the car was taken to his garage for some repairs. However, this will not happen. The owner has since passed away.
Auction House Previously mentioned for an amount of not less than 11,600 euros. However, someone eventually deposited $ 104,809 (£ 90,000) for the car, possibly because Jaguar “looks” worse than it actually is, according to the auction, and the restored vehicle is worth more than $ 290,000.
Only 69 copies of this car were produced with RHD technology and this car is the predecessor of the iconic Jaguar E-Type. The 265-hp XK150 was the first car ever to feature disc brakes on all four wheels. The car was presented as a “restoration project”.
