Some of the world’s rarest and most historically significant Jaguar cars are to be offered for sale by Pendine Historic Cars, the UK-based specialists in historic cars for road and track. Dr Christian Jenny fell in love with the marque in the early 1970s, and since then has been dedicated to building a collection of Jaguars that spans the most definitive period of the company’s development. The collection was the subject of a hardback book titled ‘The Jaguar Sports Car Collection; A Personal Endeavour’, which tells the story of each individual car, published in 2014. Located in Switzerland, among the cars is the first ever Jaguar sports car prototype, the very first E-Type to be seen in public and the famous ‘lost C-Type’. “This is without a doubt one of the most impressive and important collections of Jaguars in the world,” commented James Mitchell, founder of Pendine Historic Cars. “Each car in the collection represents a key milestone in the marque’s early history.”
Also in the collection is the first production 1935 S.S. 90 to leave the factory, a 1937 S.S. 100 2.2 litre, 1938 S.S. 100 3.5 litre, 1950 XK120 Alloy, 1950 XK120 Roadster, 1955 XK140 Roadster, 1960 XK150 3.8S Roadster, 1961 E-Type and a 1972 V12 Roadster amongst others.
