Jaguar E-type, the car that makes many hearts beat faster. Superlatives fail to describe this model. The Series 1 coupé: Designed in the late 1950s with the legendary Le-Mans D-type in mind. The development was a revolution in the automotive industry. Malcolm Sayer, who had earned his spurs in the aviation industry, designed the car in the wind tunnel and the graceful shapes and curves were not just for aesthetic reasons, but mainly related to aerodynamics. This late model carries the improvements that came into effect from 63 onwards, these included a bigger engine of 4.2 liters instead of 3.8, more comfortable seats and better brakes and electronics.
The 1966 E-type that we offer here carries the DNA of Le mans and the Lightweight versions. The car has been modified by its owner with rides and rallies in mind, while retaining the classic E-type looks.
The silver paint and bumperless look refer to the legendary lightweight model, subtly also fitted with the correct bonnet straps and Dunlop aluminum wheels.
Under the light polyester hood hides the legendary massive 4.2 block that is fed by 3 Weber carburettors.
Everything inside the cabin also exudes the racing spirit. Polycarbonate windows, comfortable burgundy leather XJS seats, beautifully finished dashboard and racing door panels, black Alcantara roof and burgundy trunk lining with large fire extinguisher and the solid Dunlop spare wheel within reach.
Get in, start the engine and enjoy his deep baritone voice. Steer the car into beautiful country roads and enjoy its sound, handling and looks. A real head turner at many events. This steed is ready to provide instant enjoyment as soon as spring arrives.
