Description

The jaguar is a car that most likely no longer needs an introduction.
An extremely elegant appearance in the streets and at many events.
The car has placed its footprints firmly in the tarmac over the years.
Aesthetics and performance are at an unprecedented level here and all owners of such "beauty" are lyrical about their car and its driving characteristics. The 'best of breed' in this is of course the series 1, the version that the designers had in mind, averse to all legal changes to bumpers and lights that followed in later years.

The car we offer here is a 1965 series 1, characterized by better seats with a slightly more comfortable seating position. The 4.2 engine with its higher torque is also a welcome upgrade. Our series 1 has only one task in mind and that’s driving, driving and driving, all without affecting the original looks.

This car will let you glide through our roads weekend after weekend with a big smile, but also ensure a high-performance place on rides and regularities. The body of this beauty was restored to a high level, all panels fit perfectly, the panel gaps run parallel and closely and all this was finished with a beautiful smooth and perfectly paintjob. Real craftsmanship! In addition, the engine, electricity, interior and all other parts were meticulously disassembled and restored or replaced where necessary. This car is therefore in absolute new condition. This car was not only nuts & bolts restored but at the same time subtle and qualitatively modified to make this gentleman driver the ultimate driver's car. The engine was equipped with original Italian Weber carburetors that provide extra power, a more direct throttle response and a beautiful suction sound. Cooling was improved with an aluminum radiator and expansion tank. Brakes were also not overlooked and by means of spacious discs with 4-pot calipers provide the necessary braking power to keep all horses in line. Gear shifting is very contemporary with the getrag-5 gearbox, which sends the horsepower to the rear wheels via a superbly working limited slip differential. The handling is absolutely phenomenal thanks to a set of top-of-the-range Koni shock absorbers. This car is therefore the ultimate combination of quality, original looks and drive ability, the perfect E-type ?!
In short, a real drivers car, ready to let you enjoy the first rays of the sun, with your hair in the wind.
