1972 Jaguar XKE Convertible

Considered part of Series III production, the 1972 Jaguar XKE Convertible would boast a powerful V12 engine that would bring more than 272 horsepower to the road. Despite being relatively heavy, the Jaguar XKE could transform this power into a 7.5 second 0-60, easily surpassing its Chevy and Porsche rivals at the time. In fact, only the Ferrari and Lamborghini’s of the era would come close, yet the Jaguar XKE was a fraction of the price. If you’re thinking about selling your 1972 Jaguar XKE Convertible, these are some of the characteristics of the XKE that make it desirable to today’s collectors and enthusiasts. Some of the visual cues that indicate your model is in fact a 1972 XKE include exaggeratedly flared wheel arches, wider tires, and a cross-slatted front grille. Optional equipment such as leather, air conditioning and, in some cases, an automatic transmission, can add value to your XKE. When selling, be sure to point out anything that makes your classic stand out from the crowd.
