Jaguar Sports 1949-75 - 2018 Market Review
Jaguar XK-140 roadster

Led by movements in the values of early E Types, demand and prices for Jaguar sports cars have been climbing here and overseas.

Some asking prices are speculative, however recent international sales did include a documented 3.8-litre trophy-winning Roadster at US$196,000 and in Europe a ‘barn-find’ 4.2 litre Coupe that brought almost A$80,000.

Very few V12s were on offer during our survey period and that small sample makes a $290,000 average for Roadsters very suspect.

XK models continue to climb and their price growth over several decades has proved to be more sustainable than erratic E Type movements during the same period.

Cars to look for include 120 Coupes or the last-gasp XK150S Roadsters.

XK120/150 Coupe $122,500 [4]

XK Drophead/Roadster $173,875 [8]

E Type Coupe $127,755 [21]

E Type Roadster $227,825 [13]

E Type V12 Roadster $289,750 [4]
