Out in front and set to take the chequered flag is the 1955 Jaguar XK140 Roadster, valued at between £120,00-140,000 ($192,000-224,000). With these particular models being produced for just three years, between 1954 and 1957, the numbers were pretty limited.
More than 3,000 left-hand drive vehicles were produced, mainly for the market of the United States, with only 74 right-hand drive models being made for this country.
The XK140 had been produced as the heir to the successful Jaguar XK120, and included better brakes, steering, suspension and tyres. It also packed a strong visual punch, with its splendid elongated bonnet making it pretty unmistakable as to what it was, and its trademark Jaguar grill.
Undoubtedly, an XK410 would be worth a large price anyway, but this model is clearly as good as it gets. It is in amazing condition, and Historics call it one of finest of its type 'in the country'.
For these reasons, it is something no classic car owner worth their salt should miss out on, either as an investment or as an addition to a collection.
Taking things a little bit more continental, but still a fabulous lot, is the 1960 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Ponton Cabriolet. Introduced in 1556, these vehicles are also very rare, as even though production lasted one more year for these compared to the Jaguar, fewer than 2,000 were actually made.
Just 17 right-hand drive 220SE convertibles were brought here in 1960, making this extremely sought after, especially given its great condition. Little wonder then that this Mercedes-Benz is valued at £85,000-95,000 ($136,000-152,000), and with their desirability increasing, that figure could certainly increase.
