The launch of the Jaguar F-Type may lead to a price increase for older Jaguars, according to telegraph.co.uk. The latest model is being hailed as the first proper sports car the brand has released in 50 years.
The new arrival to the Jaguar family could be a driving force behind renewed interest in classic models such as the timeless, classic E-Type.
Philip Porter, the founder of the E-Type Club and the International Jaguar XK Club, said: "There is no doubt the F-type will create a fresh wave of excitement for old Jaguar cars as the world is reminded of their great heritage.
"But although prices of certain models may rise, it is important not to rush in as without expert knowledge you can make a costly mistake."
Cars built before January 1973 are exempt from tax and, if driven infrequently, insurance can be affordable too. Telegraph.co.uk also adds that fitting tracking systems can reduce the premiums even more.
Blog.caranddriver.com reports that the entry-level F-Type can reach top speeds of 161mph and all versions of the model have been designed with the aim of making Jaguar a serious contender in the world of performance sports cars.
However, with prices from £58,000, the F-Type may be too expensive for some Jaguar enthusiasts, leading them to look into investing in classic models instead.
