Gotti, boss of New York City’s Gambino crime family in the 1980s, received the 1972 Jaguar XKE convertible as a gift from veteran capo Greg DePalma. DePalma gave the car to Gotti to gain favor with the boss, according to FBI agent Jack Garcia, who was working undercover within the Gambino family at the time. Gotti subsequently gave the car to his wife, Victoria, for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. The Mob Museum acquired the car from Victoria. Gotti died in prison in 2002. DePalma died in 2009.
