How much would you pay for this 1960 XK150 S?

1960 Jaguar XK150 S, “in need of some work.”

Hint: It would have to be more than $127,552. Still interested?

The car in question had an unpleasant interaction with a tree back in 1996, and was stored in a dry garage ever since. On May 22, 2021, it sold at a Bonham’s auction for an eye-popping six times the sales estimate.

Which goes to show that the market for classic cars is doing quite well, thank you very much.

Looking at the pictures, and in particular the state of the steering wheel, it’s a miracle the previous owner survived the crash.

More on the sale from Bloomberg here, and from the Robb Report here.

Would you fork over more than a hundred grand for this car? Please let us know in the comments.
