Met Police Recover Classic 1962 Jaguar worth £165,000

Met Police Recover Classic 1962 Jaguar worth £165,000 | TRACKER UK | Scoop.it

TRACKER helped recover a much loved 53 year old Jaguar E-type after it was stolen in broad daylight in West London.

TRACKER_UK's insight:

Adrian Davenport, Police Liaison Manager for TRACKER explains, “Thieves are targeting classic cars, as they don’t have the sophisticated security features we take for granted on modern vehicles. It is understandable classic car owners aren’t keen on installing alarm systems and immobilisers as they can affect the aesthetics of the vehicle. A tracking unit is discreetly fitted to a car, so will not affect the look of the car. The device won’t stop a vehicle being stolen, however it will significantly increase the chances of the police recovering and returning the vehicle to its owner.”
