First Jaguar D-Type Fetches £2.2 million

International fine art auction house Bonhams lately inked a new world record for sales generation of Jaguar motor car during an auction. The 1955 Jaguar D-Type Sports Racing Car ‘XKD509’ went to an anonymous British buyer for a monstrous cost of £2,201,500 ($4.4 million). The 3.4-litre coupe model claims to be the first Jaguar D-Type that underwent production in 1955 (costing £2,500 then) and sports an original subframe, tub and 3.4-liter competition engine.

The auction was scheduled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester on behalf of the Littlewoods Football Pools family. The sales generated have overshadowed the previous record of £1,706,000 marked in 1999.
