Jaguar Festival 2019 will present a full range of vehicles from James Bond films and the E-Type from the Italian Job and cars from TV dramas. “Fans of the 1970s show Minder will be excited by Arthur Daley’s very own Jaguar XJ6 as used in the TV classic, a car that has rarely been seen since filming ceased,” said classiccarcuration.
Silverstone Auctions is auctioning off watches, auto-memorabilia and of course cars.
“Believed to be the only E-Type factory-finished in Rolls-Royce Shell Grey, this beautiful 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II FHC will be going under the hammer at The Sale of British Marques to be held with us as part of the weekend-long Summer Jaguar Festival,” said jec.org.uk.
Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire, the first venue for the Summer Jaguar Festival, will be hosting the Silverstone Auctions May sale of British Marques and Classic cars on the 11th May 2019, bringing together some very high quality and exclusive lots.
Two highly collectable cars which to date are still the fastest cars produced by Jaguar. A great opportunity to acquire one of the most significant supercars of their era.
Silverstone Auctions is also offering not one but two XJ220 supercars, one in left hand drive with 20,500 km and the other right hand drive with just 700 miles. This car was once the fastest production car in the world, with the record set by Martin Brundle in 1992 at the Nardo test track.

This car is now in exceptional condition and ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. Estimated at £300,000 to £350,000. If a left hand drive XJ220 doesn’t suit, well you can have a 1995 right hand drive version with just 700miles inLe Mans Blue. This car was recently discovered in a private collection in Malaysia and brought back to the UK where it underwent £25,000 worth of work by XJ220 model experts Don Law in December 2015.
