Jaguar En­thu­si­asts’ Club – Gra­ham Searle

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

‘In my view they are not repli­cas – I pre­fer the term “re-cre­ations”. It’s such a rel­a­tively new phe­nom­e­non that only time will tell how they are treated. How­ever ex­act­ing the stan­dards (and they are su­perb cars) they are new cars so can’t truly be clas­sics, at least not for an­other 20 years or so!

‘I be­lieve that they will al­ways be treated dif­fer­ently to the originals and early cars’ val­ues will re­flect this. Take the re­cent sale of the Aus­tralian Light­weight at £6 mil­lion – it makes the new cars look like great value!’
