Star Car and What's it Worth?


VEHICLE: Jaguar X-type 2.5 Sport Black 03/40,572 miles
WHERE SOLD: Manheim Auctions Rotherham
SALE PRICE: £12,200
% of CAP: 108%
CONDITION: Very good

The first sale back after Christmas saw lots of buyers wanting to purchase new stock. A large number of trade and private buyers bid on this car and so forced the price up to beyond 100% CAP Clean, despite the mileage being quite high. In black, the car looked very good and, as we are still seeing relatively few X-types coming back into the used market, this car performed very well.
