Jaguar enjoyed plenty of air time this year within the collector car auction world. Well represented at major collector car auctions in 2015, Auction Editor Rick Carey witnessed the good, bad and the ugly from the Coventry-based car firm.
Carey’s journey across the globe in 2015 started in January at the Scottsdale sales and finally concluded recently at the RM Sotheby’s New York City sale. Covering dozens of auctions and evaluating thousands of cars, Carey aimed to give enthusiasts a better of idea of the quality of each of the cars crossing the block at the auctions.
While the Jaguar E-Type made up a majority of the Jaguar offerings at auction in 2015, it was two racing Jaguars that topped the auction list. The biggest Jaguar sale in dollars of 2015 occurred when RM Sotheby’s sold the ex-Works 1953 Jaguar C-Type Lightweight Roadster (s/n XKC 052) for $13,200,000 at their Monterey auction, followed by the 1955 Jaguar D-Type Sports Racer (s/n XKD 530) sold at the RM Amelia Island sale for $3,675,000.
Listed in chronological order, Rick Carey’s reports on the 60 Jaguars analyzed in 2015.
