The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

The re­turn of the Jaguar E-Type: One of the most iconic of Jaguars is set to re­turn, al­beit as one of 10 fac­tory-re­stored mod­els. The “re­born” sports cars that were orig­i­nally built be­tween 1961 and 1968 (Se­ries 1 edi­tions) con­tain mostly orig­i­nal parts, in­clud­ing 3.8- or 4.2-litre in­line-six-cylin­der en­gines and four-speed man­ual trans­mis­sions, plus a few up­grades in the in­ter­ests of safety. Prices have been set at the equiv­a­lent of US $355,000 per ve­hi­cle.

The sale of Don­ald Trump’s Ital­ian sports car: A 2007 Ferrari F430 that was pre­vi­ously owned by the Pres­i­dent of the United States re­cently sold an auc­tion in Fort Laud­erdale, Fla., for US $240,000 (plus sell­ing commission). That price was well be­low the high of US $350,000 that Auc­tions Amer­ica es­ti­mated the car would bring, but still higher than the av­er­age sale price for sim­i­lar mod­els.

The 10 fac­tory-re­stored E-Types are priced at about US $355,000 each.

Don­ald Trump’s Ferrari F430 sold for well over mar­ket value.
