Famously lauded as “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, the E-type is possibly the most iconic of the British sports cars. The perfect combination of beauty, high performance and reasonable pricing made it one of the most well-loved cars of all time. Based on the three-consecutive Le Mans winning D-type race cars, the E-type was designed to be light. The front subframe carried the engine and the front suspension and bodywork were bolted directly to the tub making its power to weight ratio the stuff of legend. Updated to include a new 5.3 L V12 engine, new brakes and power steering as standard, the Series 3 retained all the charm of the original E-types but with modernised mechanics. The stunning new V12 was a LeMans proven set up with dual Zenith carburettors and a 0-60 time of less than 7-seconds. The Series 3 had some notable design features including the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, four exhaust tips and a special badge on the rear touting the prowess of the thunderous V12 inside.
Forever an iconic piece of British history, the E-type evokes images of winding country roads and the elegance of a bygone era. This immaculately kept, matching numbers, low mileage example is the perfect weekend partner rain or shine. Expertly specced in Signal Red over black, the red piping on the perforated leather seats creates a holistic experience encouraging you to have the top down year round. With only 12,000 miles on the odometer since a major restoration and only 6 former owners, this car is the perfect example of a Series 3 E-Type Roadster.
