"Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar 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 rivals reeling and customers clamouring. Early sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front subframe to cradle the engine, the model's combination of all-round independent suspension, rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a 'straight port' DOHC cylinder head, its indomitable 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox, it reputedly enabled the E-type to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. The E-type remains for many the ultimate production Jaguar.
This lovely Jaguar E-Type Series I 2+2 Coupé has been the subject of a body and mechanical restoration completed in 2021, this included a ‘bare metal’ repaint in this stunning dark red. The engine has been rebuilt, the gearbox overhauled, the suspension gone through and new shock absorbers fitted. The steering rack has been rebuilt, a complete overhaul of the rear axle, drive shafts and universal joints and the brakes rebuilt including new brake calipers and pads. This is the second restoration, the first being carried out in 1988 when we believe the interior was done and a Series I½ bonnet fitted. The black leather interior has recently lightly Connolized to return it back to very good condition. This 2+2 Coupé is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in January 2023 and a file containing old MoT test certificates and invoices for the restoration work carried out in 1988 and 2020/21. The E-Type Jaguar is regarded to be one of the prettiest sports cars from the 1960s, as said by Enzo Ferrari and good examples remain as sought after in today’s market.
