A pride of Jaguars invade Monterey

Jaguar cars at Pebble Beach ConcoursFor three days in August Monterey, California is a car enthusiast's dreamland. For this year in addition to the Jaguars racing at the Laguna Seca circuit and those for sale in the various auctions a Jaguar class was added at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The first event of the weekend is Concorso Italiano held at the Quail Lodge resort and while Italian cars take pride of place the event includes a selection of other marques including a few Jaguars. The most unusual of which had to be a wildly modified E type that theJaguar E type owner had completed over a period of several years. Whilst not being to everyone's taste as it was fitted with a Ford V8 engine the workmanship was first class. One interesting feature was the eyes in the leaping jaguar mascot lit up with the sidelights!! A full report can be found at Classic Car News.

Jaguar C typeOver at the Laguna Seca raceway the owners of racing Jaguars were practising ready for the races on the weekend. With XK120s, C types, D types, E types, Lister-Jaguars, a Hagemann-Jaguar and the Jaguar-Parkinson Special, not forgetting the Ecurie Ecosse transporter shipped over from England there was a good selection of interest to the Jaguar enthusiast. Results and review of the races can be found here.

Each evening there is an auction with those on the Friday and Saturday being organized by the Monterey Auction Company. A variety of Jaguars were on offer including a Mark 5 drophead, the D type Jaguar D typethat was originally featured in Road and Track in the fifties, a selection of XKs and a few E types. Despite a full American history and being in concours condition the D type sold for less than a million dollars. A full list of the Jaguars sold appears below and reviews of the RM Auctions, Bonhams and Christies.

Jaguar E type at Pebble BeachJaguars at the Pebble Beach Concours have been limited inJaguar XJ13 at Pebble Beach the past with the occasional D type, XKSS, SS100 or special XK making an appearance. This year however there was a Jaguar class that included some of the most historic of the breed. JDHT brought a selection including 2 XK120s - NUB 120 and LWK 707, XJ13, Group 44 E type and a XJR9. Jaguar E2A E-type at Pebble BeachThe E2A prototype, lightweight E type, C types, D types and the Ecurie Ecosse transporter completed the racing display. Pre war fans could admire the SS100 and film buffs were delighted to see the XKSS formerly owned by Steve McQueen. Prizes were awarded to 1st - D type MWS 301, 2nd Ex Steve McQueen XKSS, 3rd E type lighweight.

The Monterey weekend represents an automobile enthusiasts' dreamland and returning to reality is a real anti-climax. Still there is always next year.....
