Barons To Auction Jaguar 420G

Fancy owning a 1968 Jaguar 420G? If so, bid for this beautiful machine at Baron's Auction

Fancy owning a 1968 Jaguar 420G? If so, bid for this beautiful machine at Baron's Auction at the Sandown Park Exhibition Centre, Surrey, on April 17th 2012. This remarkable saloon has been in the same family since it was two years old, and is estimated to sell for between £5,000 and £7,000. This is barely the cost of a new motorcycle. Alternatively, how about a 1960 Austin Healey 3000? Its estimate is £8,000 to £10,000 – which is the price of a low-spec Fiesta. Clearly, enthusiasts can purchase classics without selling their kidneys.

But what about something a little more expensive? My favourite is the 1970 Lamborghini Espada. This has been beautifully restored and finished with blue metallic paint. Must be worth every penny of its £42,000 to £48,000 estimate. Or, how about the 1961 Chevrolet Corvette 283 C1? This looks remarkable and is guaranteed to get attention. Surely, a very tempting prospect for £50,000 to £56,000. Other beauties include the 1970 MG MGB Roadster (£8,000 to £10,000), the 1988 Bentley Turbo R (£8,000 to £9,000), and the 1964 Mercedes-Benz 220 SEb Coupé (£14,000 to £16,000). Choices, choices.
