One special car in the private collection is the 1983 Jaguar XJ-S HE 5.3 Lynx Eventer.

Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager commented “We are extremely delighted to have the opportunity to offer this significant private collection. It features some interesting examples which are offered without reserve, so this collection is not to be missed. It is such a privilege to be offering the private collection again after selling Part II and our sister company, Silverstone Auctions, selling Part I last year”.

Offered without a reserve is this striking Sapphire Blue 1994 Daimler Majestic (XJ40). This very rare example is just one of 121 that were stretched by Project Aerospace in Coventry and then fitted out by Jaguar SVO. The car has a raised roof with a beautiful limousine-style interior in Ivory with picnic tables and individual rear seats. With a lovely history and 39,025 miles (when tested in 2018) Classic Car Auctions are proud to be offering this in their collection.

The last of four cars to be previewed from this private collection is this 1993 Jaguar XJS 5.3 Auto Convertible. The car is accompanied by an original handbook pack, stamped service book and a history file. Presented in a stunning Westminster blue, the car was last serviced in July 2004 and is showing 34,708 miles after being supplied new by St Helier Garages.

Silverstone Auctions Formed in 2011, Silverstone Auctions is a world-class, specialist auction house for the sale of classic cars, modern supercars, all types of competition cars, modern and historic motorcycles as well as automobilia. In 2020 we sold £32.3million worth of cars and The Silverstone Classic Live Online Auction was our highest grossing sale in the history of the company. Following the success of the company, The Silverstone Auctions group became the UK's market leading classic car auction house in 2020. We hold the exclusive automotive auction rights for Silverstone Circuit where we host several stand-alone events each year, as well as our annual headline sale as part of the Silverstone Classic, the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival. In addition to our sales at Silverstone Circuit, we also host several auctions each year at other major classic car events, including the NEC Classic Motor Show and Race Retro. At present, the events have been unable to go ahead in their typical format, but we have continued to work closely with each of these event partners for online versions. Over the years we have also been selected by several the UK’s official owners’ clubs to hold marque-dedicated sales, including the highly regarded Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club and Porsche Club Great Britain.
