Jaguar XJ13 - WHAT A HISTORY!!





It's not every day you stumble upon a $20,000,000 car! No, I didn't accidentally put too many 0's, this one of a kind masterpiece is value at $20 million. Instead of attempting to describe it's wonderful history, it's best to refer readers directly to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_XJ13 . One note is that Wikipedia states it is worth $11 million, but rumor has it, recently someone offered to purchase it for the big $20 a couple years ago!
This particular Jaguar typically sits in a museum in Coventry, but came over the pond recently to be displayed at the Amelia Island Concours. It's on it's way around the U.S. and made a brief pit-stop in Indianapolis, Indiana for the JCNA (Jaguar Club of North America) Annual General Meet. I can only thank whomever had the pull to get the driver of the transport semi to detour off to downtown Indy. It was amazing watching people walk by the amazing car and not know what they were seeing. Oh, I failed to mention, there was a D-type sitting right next to it as well, another incredible Jag you don't see everyday! To the 'car people' in this world, it's a VERY rare opportunity!
