Extensively publicised in its time, this unique 2.5 litre ‘sport’ (petrol) special was produced by Jaguar for the legendary England footballer Michael Owen’s personal use in Phoenix ‘Liverpool’ Red and Ivory Hide with red stitching. Michael Owen’s signature was laser printed at Jaguar to both the rear window and bird’s eye maple dashboard and the unique chromed ‘football’ gear knob commissioned by Jaguar bears the .player’s name and his shirt number 10. The car was subsequently donated for a Sotheby’s charity auction where ferocious bidding far exceeded its original list price, and remarkably, the new owner then released the car to ‘The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club’  so it could be raffled, again for charity. Ever since, this famous Jaguar has been privately owned and remains in outstanding condition with 36,000 miles covered since new, and have now detailed it to show condition. The car’s provenance includes numerous associated press articles about the car. In addition to being a practical and economical prestige saloon, this is a unique, one- off investment opportunity appealing to enthusiast collectors of both Jaguar cars and football memorabilia- a real talking point at events.
