A man bought an old farmhouse to demolish, started to dismantle the barn and found one of the most expensive things in the world

Mark Benton was buying an old farmhouse to be demolished. He was primarily interested in the land. Already before the start of the work, something prompted the man to study the contents of the barn built on the outskirts. The doors creaked open and behind them Mark was surprised to see one of the most expensive cars in the world, produced in 1959. It was in this year that Jaguar launched the Mark 2 saloon, which is not characteristic of the mark. The company was looking to conquer a new audience.

The designers combined an elegant representative body with a powerful engine: the Jaguar XK sports car engine was fitted to the Jaguar Mark 2, which instantly made it one of the fastest cars on the market at that time. . Sedans were released a little, almost all of them remained in their native England.

Consequently, Mark was surprised when he found one of the few Jaguars on a long-abandoned farm in Iowa, a state that Americans themselves consider, to say the least, remote from cultural hubs. The car is superbly preserved, especially considering the decades it spent in a wooden shed.

Documents were also found in the glove box: the last time a sedan was registered was in 1983. The car will be auctioned. The new owner expects to receive at least several hundred thousand dollars for this.
