Our chart of the latest Price Guide Movers on the slide in the current issue shows XKs have lost between 1.8% and 11%, depending on the model.
Hardest hit is the XK150 3.8S drophead coupé, with that 11% fall placing it joint first in our On the Slide chart. It’s closely followed by the 3.4-litre version of the same model, then the 3.8SE with declines of 8.9% and 8% respectively. A further six XK variants feature declines this month, half of which are XK150s, the remainder being the XK140 fixedhead coupé and aluminium-bodied XK120 Roadster, with the last and very much least being the XK140 drophead coupé which gets off lightly with that modest 1.8% decline.
Jaguar XK prices benefitted from the model’s increased profile around the 60th anniversary and a more widespread classic car market boom. Both are now fading into the distance, and the added factor of diminishing generational appeal may well be steepening the curve.
