Jaguar XKs top Sandown Park sale


A 1954 XK120 drophead coupé was the highest-priced lot when it made £52,000 on the hammer at Baron’s Annual Jaguar Heritage sale on 14 April.

The two-owner car was closely followed by a left-hand drive 1959 XK150 dhc, which sold for £49,000. The latter had been upgraded to S specification giving it 250bhp.

A 1958 2.4 historic racer made £12,000, while a two-owner 1968 420 saloon went for £6200 and a 1988 XJS convertible was snapped up for £6000.

Meanwhile, a 1998 Daimler Super 8 sailed past its top estimate settling on £4492.

The saloon had been maintained throughout its life by Creamer & Son of Kensington, with work overseen by Michael Quinn, grandson of Sir William Lyons.

The auction house’s next sale is on 9 June.
