Description

Belgian registration
Chassis # 889998

- In beautiful condition
- The E-Type in its purest and most elegant version
- 25 years in the same family

During its launch at the Geneva Motor Show of 1961, the Jaguar E-Type Coupe amazed everyone: that immense, beautifully sculpted bonnet does not look like anything else circulating on the roads of that period. In the veins of the E-type flowed the blood of D-Type, victorious in the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1955, 1956 and 1957. It is therefore logical that it offered performance that reflected the car's sporting aspirations, with the same powerpack that had brought glory to the brand, in the car in its 3.8-liter six-cylinder twin camshaft version. With max power of 265bhp, the car can reach a top speed of 240 km/h, and has a long career, knowing several aesthetic and technical developments over the years.
Originally a U.S. version, the Jaguar E-Type that we are offering was purchased in 1988 through the garage Coventry Motor in Brussels. Since then, the car has not left the family. Black in colour, which beautifully highlights the car's line of timeless elegance, this car does not seem to have been used much lately and will probably need to be overhauled. The condition is nice, and inside, the interior is neat and features a Blaupunkt radio. The wooden steering wheel's spokes goes perfectly well with the black upholstery, all calling for a quick but friendly drive in an atmosphere of chic and luxury. The body style is a coupe and is from the first series, specialists agree that it is the purest and most beautiful of all the E-Types, offering a design that remains among the most spectacular in the history of the automobile. This car has remained 25 years in the same family and will bring to its new owner a technically aesthetic pleasure, not forgetting of course the exhilaration provided by its six-cylinder twin camshaft engine, one of the most famous of its time.
