Unique Jaguar XK140 discovered in a barn sells for €365,500

A battered Jaguar XK140 found in a Belgian barn in April has sold at auction in Monaco for €365,500, roughly ten times its original estimate. Built as a standard XK140 in 1955, the car was involved in an accident in 1957 in which its factory bodywork was nearly completely destroyed. It was subsequently rebuilt by famed Italian coachbuilder Giovani Michelotti.
