New York Icons XKE sells for $235,200USD
Yesterday RM Sotheby’s sold this fantastic triple-black XKE for $235,200USD at their ICONs sale in New York City.
This particular example, 1E 13575 started out as a low-mileage, rust free, California survivor.
It was completed by Shaun Saunders in Scottsdale, Arizona who is known for his meticulous dry builds. If I could critique one aspect it would be the over-polished intake manifold and carburetor setup.
The $235,200USD was probably a supreme disappointment in New York. A very similar car, known as the Black Beauty sold for $467,500 at the same sale in 2013.
Beautiful E Type restored by Shaun Saunders. This car sold at the RM Sotheby’s Auction at Monterey in 2015 for $319.000.
