TOP FIVE SECOND HAND JAGUARS OF ALL TIME

Having been officially incorporated in December 2012 as Jaguar Land Rover Ltd, it is perhaps time to take a look at some of the most celebrated Jaguar vehicles of all time.

With so many great second hand vehicles to choose from however, getting it down to the final five has been no easy decision, so without further a-do, here they are:Jaguar XK

Although one of the newer cars of the Jaguar range, the XK quickly established itself as a leading model after its introduction in 1996.

As a replacement to the XJS, the car is available as a two door coupe and a convertible.

With an unlimited speed of 174mph, along with a 0-60 acceleration of 4.4, the car is also one of the more powerful vehicles available in the whole grand tourer series.

Today, it is possible to buy a second hand XK for around £45,000. You can of course buy used Jaguars available at HA Fox Jaguar, nationwide.

Jaguar E-Type

Possibly one of the most recognisable cars in the history of the company, the E-Type enjoyed a long production history, having been manufactured from 1961 through to 1974.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, the model went on to sell over 70,000 vehicles, and in 2008 it was voted number 1 by the readers of The Daily Telegraph as the most beautiful cars of all time.

Today you can buy an E-Type from as little as £40,000, though if you want a pristine refurbishment, you could be looking to hand over up to £100,000.

Jaguar C-Type

Although the car enjoyed only a limited release, having being built only between 1951 and 1953, the car is often regarded as one of the most recognisable models of the Jaguar range along with its cousin, the E-Type.

Due to the fact that only 53 were produced in the entirety of the run, a C-Type today can cost you roughly $400,000. In fact, on particular C-Type in 2009 was sold for $2,530,00.

From new, the car would have cost roughly £6,000, that’s a substantial investment for any car, never mind a Jaguar!

Jaguar XJS

Only the second grand tourer in our top five, the XJS was introduced in 1975, only to be replaced by the aforementioned XK.

Before that however, the public grew to enjoy the six-cylinder vehicle alongside the XJR-S version that stayed on the production line all the way up until 1993.

Today, if you were looking to purchase a XJS, you can actually find them relatively cheaply, from £3,000 right up to £15,000.

Jaguar XJ13

Possibly the most unique Jaguar ever built, the XJ13 was a prototype vehicle unlike any other, being possibly the most long-awaited car of all time.

Designed to challenge competitors at Le Mans during the 1960’s, the car began its pre-production process as far back as 1960; 14 years before it would actually roll off of the production line.

Interestingly, the car has caused much controversy as the current owners of the vehicle have refused all offers for its sale, having turned down an offer reaching £7 million in 1996.
