How much is my 1997 Jaguar XK8 worth?

I have a 1997 blue hard-top Jaguar XK8 which has been off the road since failing its MoT in Summer 2018. Parked outside, uncovered. It’s a lovely car to drive and was reliable for the year I drove it. I am now abroad and never managed to get the car back up and running and now need to move it so I am exploring potentially selling it and wondered if you could direct me in value / price bracket?

There is a crack in the front suspension and then a few minor issues that need fixing and it has of course not been driven in nearly 6 years.

The best way to obtain an estimated value for your vehicle is to look for examples currently for sale, taking into account the fact that the vehicle is SORN and also needs recomissioning. Running examples start at around £3500, so we would suggest pricing your car below this figure.

Still a head-turner and now cheaper than ever. Refined, sporting drive. Luxurious feel to the cabin.
