New Avengers Jaguar XJ makes $96,000
A Jaguar XJ coupe from popular 1970s TV series The New Avengers has sold for £62,000 ($95,743).
The lot was among the highlights of an October 14 sale held by H&H Classics at the Imperial War Museum in London.
Nick Delaney of H&H Classics said: “It is fantastic to see this Jaguar XJ12-C from The New Avengers TV Series back in public view again after being locked away for so long.
“The sale price of £62,000 is truly remarkable considering it fetched more than £50,000 over initial estimates.
“It just proves the appeal of not only the programme but also of the car itself. Buyers are seeing the investment potential with classic Jaguars and the added provenance of this car means that it, once fully restored to working order again, will be even more valuable.”
