MARKET WATCH: JAGUAR E-TYPE PRICES EDGE LOWER

Weakness in the middle and upper segments of the market sees this month’s Price Guide Movers chart for cars on the slide crowded with names that include Aston Martin and Porsche, peppered with the odd Jaguar and TVR.

Jaguar E-Type

by Classic Car |

Aside from the more collectable early 3.8-litre Jaguar E-types, the later Series 1s with the 4.2-litre evolution of the XK straight six have long been rated as the best balance between pure, early styling and later, more driver-friendly improvements, but this month those very cars have made it into the top ten classics on the slide.

A 5.9% dip in roadster prices brings project cars down to £57.5k, with driver-condition examples now at £85k and the mint or concours-rated cars making £125k and £160k respectively. Expect these movements to create further downward pressure on values of two-seater coupés and all body styles of the Series 2 and Series 3 evolutions over the coming months.

Price Guide Movers is part of 16 pages of buying tips and advice, including Quentin Willson’s Hot Tips, Ads on Test, the Buying Guide in the latest issue of Classic Cars.
