This E-type was converted through the winter of 2008/9 to the semi-lightweight form it presents in today. Restored from the ground up, this example now benefits from elegant Opalescent Dark Blue coachwork over an oxblood red leather interior. With a power plant built by renowned marque specialists, Sigma Engineering, this semi-lightweight E-type benefits from a narrow angle head on an iron block, complete with triple 48 Weber carburettors and a wet sump.

Recently converted to full race specification, although retaining all parts needed to be road legal, this E-type has been used most recently as an introduction to historic motorsport. Sold twice by DK Engineering before, this example has competed in two seasons of Equipe Libre, where the car made regular appearances near the top of the timesheets and on the podium.

Run by the specialists Pursuit Racing, this example has had over £200,000 spent on it since 2020, including tireless and comprehensive maintenance as well as a full gearbox and differential rebuild.

The engine setup affords the car a healthy 275bhp at the wheels, or circa 325-335bhp at the flywheel. Demonstrating a near peak in torque quite low down, this E-type offers a linear torque delivery after 2000rpm, offering great usability and drivability.

The build specification includes:

Full ‘semi-lightweight’ specification with thin aluminium lightweight bonnet, doors, bootlid and hardtop
Full race engine by Sigma Engineering
Recently rebuilt differential
New oil cooler
Pursuit race suspension set up
Aeroquip fuel lines
Running legal MSD
Tillet race seat
Straight through and silenced options
New quick-release steering wheel and boss
Repainted for 2023

Accompanied by fresh FIA papers, an extensive spares package including spare wheels, this E-type provides the opportunity to own a race proven semi-lightweight conversion, which also could easily be reverted to an enjoyable and presentable road car. It is available for viewings by appointment only.
