Last week we highlighted a fabulous 420 Jaguar once by Lord Mountbatten. The car had just gone on sale at Sotheby’s as we went to publication.
There is no doubt the 420’s is massively over-looked by collectors and this was a very nice car with outstanding provenance. With 420’s in very fine fettle selling for mid to high teens (rarely) we expected the guide price of £10,000-£20,000 to be exceeded. We are the first to admit we did not in our wildest of expectations expect to see the hammer fall where it did. After very busy bidding the car finally sold for an eye watering £126,000! Wow.
We are car enthusiasts and pride ourselves on supplying a diverse range of high quality vehicles, all the ‘best example of type’ available.
