 The Jaguar E-type is an icon of British automotive history, and it isn't difficult to see why. Sensational looks, the ability to reach close to 150mph and all for half the price of an Aston or a Ferrari at the time. Jaguar's sports car was an instant sensation as its curvaceous good looks - equally good in roadster or fixed-head forms - were clearly related to the Le Mans-winning D-types of the 1950s, sculpted by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer.Jaguar continued to develop the E-type throughout its life. The first major results of this program of improvements became obvious in 1964 when the newly enlarged 4.2-litre XK engine was installed and, although maximum power remained unchanged at 265bhp, torque was usefully increased, improving driveability. Other improvements included the arrival of a fully synchronised Moss gearbox and twin SU petrol pumps. A Lucas alternator was adopted along with negative-earth electrics, a pre-engaged starter was designed and a lockheed vacuum servo replaced the Kelsey Haynes unit originally fitted. The seats were redesigned, being plusher and pleated, whilst an all-black instrument panel replaced the original aluminium one. A 2+2 version of the Coupé was added in 1966 and this was some nine inches longer with marginally different roof angles.This is a UK, RHD matching numbers, manual, 2+2 that has been meticulously restored by classic car specialist Robin Lackford in 2009 to 2010. The restoration was thorough and no expense spared with the car taken back to bare metal, thoroughly prepared and superbly resprayed in its original Jaguar Cream. During the restoration, we are informed Jaguar Heritage were consulted on a regular basis to make sure the car was as close to factory specification as possible. Clearly, this input has been effective as ‘LDF 131E' looks spot-on and would reward close inspection. This is unquestionably a Concours standard restoration. The odometer is showing 68,000 miles, which is believed genuine but cannot be warranted.Since the restoration was finished in late 2010, the car's previous owner enjoyed, loved, and cherished his E-Type and used it as a good classic should be. We were pleased to sell the car for him in 2016 and it was purchased by a regular customer of ours who immediately placed it in his significant collection where it has been enjoying the benefits of dry storage and used only on dry days as is evident if you have a look underneath. Our customer is in the enviable position of being able to rotate and refresh his collection every few years and we are pleased to be able to offer this immaculate Jaguar on his behalf.Cream is a rare colour for an E-type these days and it really does suit the longer car's slightly different lines. This is a superb opportunity to acquire an incredibly pretty and expertly restored, potential Concours winning 2+2 E-Type Coupé.
