Electric E-Type

Jaguar has unveiled a fully electric E-Type known as E-Type Zero. The modified series 1.5 car they have used generates 220KW of power and is now capable of achieving 0-62 in just 5.5 seconds. The interior has been re-modelled giving the car a more contemporary feel whilst the rest of the car appears to be just like a 1968 series 1.5 car. The concept might well become more commonplace over the coming decades and perhaps the best classics will be converted to electric whilst the original engines are crated into preservation. No one knows at this stage what the future holds, but hopefully classics will be able to ride on into the future with their engines left where they are. For those that have the money the option of electrification will be available and if the process has been done sympathetically to preserve the original car it might not be such a bad thing although for now we would much prefer to hear the roar of a straight six! That said Jaguar have clearly done a great job with this conversion and to find out more and see a video please visit their media page by clicking a href="">here

Classic car prices continue to fall


We are seeing at the start of 2024 a similar picture to what we experienced in 2023 with prices for most marques losing some ground. It is almost inevitable given the difficult macroeconomic backdrop and the fact that prices have risen strongly for a decade or more. We suspect prices will continue to experience a slow drop over the coming year, but if interest rates start to fall as the year progresses it may well be that prices will start to stabilise. This does not stop us buying good quality cars with the right provenance. We are also very interested in restoration projects, but they must be a complete car, not a stalled restoration that has been partially dismantled. If you have a restoration sitting in your garage that has not seen the light of day for many years, please do call us as we are very interested in a car in any condition whether it be a full restoration of just a recommissioning project, but it must be a complete car

Auction prices driving unrealistic asking prices

Morris J Type Van

We couldn't help but notice a Morris J Type van which was listed within the last week or so at a world record asking price of £18,750. This seems to be the result of the sale of a similar model (pictured) at Anglia Car Auctions over the previous weekend of a van that had just 8,928 miles on the clock and sold for £18.020. The reason for such a strong selling price was the incredibly low mileage and we would not expect to see this repeated for a van of the same model unless it also had a unique selling point. This again shows why it is important not to follow all auction results when pricing your car. Please contact us today if you have a classic to sell and we will give you a realistic appraisal of what your car can achieve in the current market.
