That brings the price range to £22.5k, £35k, £65k and £90k for cars in rough, good, mint and concours condition respectively.
The exceptions are the last 50 E-type Series 3 Roadsters built as special commemorative editions (pictured) in black with matching hard top, which are holding firm. E-type prices had seen a long period of growth that picked up sharply in the run up to the model’s 50th anniversary in 2011 and overall, continued to grow, albeit more slowly and in line with the overall market until around 2017 when many classics started to look too expensive. Since then E-types prices have eroded, along with the general market, though nothing so far has exhibited a drastic fall.
