Beschreibung

The E-Type Jaguar debuted at the 1961 Geneva Motorshow as a replacement for the hugely successful Jaguar XK150. The new E-Type was nothing short of a revelation, with its heady blend of supercar performance, breath-taking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left its rivals reeling and customers desperate to own one. Designed by William Lyons and Malcolm Sayer, the E-Type was launched in 1961 in both fixed head coupe and roadster form with design inspiration taken from the Le-Mans winning D-Type sports racer. Built around a steel monocoque chassis with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, all-round independent suspension using coil springs and dampers to the rear with torsion bars and wishbones to the front. Brakes were Dunlop discs all round, mounted inboard to the rear alongside the differential to reduce un-sprung weight. Powered by Jaguar’s XK 3.8 litre twin-cam straight six engine, the E-Type offered breath taking performance to rival both Ferrari and Aston Martin. The 3.8 litre engine produced 265bhp and boasted a top speed of 150 mph and a 0-60 mph time of just 6.5 secs.

The Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Series 1 Roadster (chassis number 850810) offered here at Autostorico is finished in Carmen Red with Black leather interior. This original UK example was supplied by P.J. Evans of Birmingham to its first owner Mr E.G. Lamb of Stourbridge on 3rd April 1964. The current owner purchased this beautiful example in September 2007 and has maintained it to a very high standard with no expense spared. During this period notable works have included: a full respray with new chrome, removal of engine to paint and detail the engine bay, a full mechanical overhaul carried out by a Jaguar specialist in Essex including full engine rebuild, fitting a full synchro 4 speed Jaguar gearbox and diaphragm clutch, full suspension rebuild including fitting Koni shock absorbers to the front and rear, brake overhaul including fitting Coopercraft upgraded callipers, an upgraded radiator and cooling fan. In 2017 the car benefitted from a stunning re-trim with new leather, new carpets and a new hood.

Offered for sale with a current V5 registration document, MOT certificate valid until September 2019 and a history file containing numerous invoices including Heritage Certificate.

This car offers the purchaser an opportunity to own a fine example of the most desirable Series 1 E-Type, which will certainly appreciate further over time.
