Jaguar to acquire James Hull collection

Jaguar to acquire James Hull collection

New Special Operations division buys extensive collection of British cars, as the firm promises to "invest more" in its British heritage


The Tata Motors subsidiary, Jaguar Land Rover recently commissioned a Special Operations division which has recently acquired the entire collection of 543 British cars from the millionaire dentist Dr. James Hull. It was only a couple of months ago when Dr. James Hull put up his collection for sale, more of that here.

The collection includes 130 Jaguars, which features C & D-types, XKSS, SS100, a rare alloy-bodied XK120, several early E-types and a Mark X once owned by Sir William Lyons.

It seems both Dr.Hull and the JLR division share the same goals of keeping this unique collection in British hands. The collection will be split up around various appropriate locations.

Classic car experts have estimated the collection's value at between £25-35 million.
