Delivered new in the United States and then imported into France, this 3 Series roadster was purchased in January 2014 by its current owner. A collector of beautiful Italian GTs, the latter had a weakness for the English one, which he simply considered the most beautiful of the E-Types for its wider bodywork and its 4 characteristic exhaust pipes. Elegant in its Primrose Yellow shade, we had a lot of fun at the wheel during a 30-minute test drive on Normandy roads. The engine responds to each request with a torque and an extension that the automatic gearbox can handle without stumbling. The car doesn't get hot, gear shifting is smooth and its overall handling is very satisfying with excellent handling and efficient braking. The interior is in good condition as well as the leather hood. Note that the car is equipped with the original air conditioning, which still needs to be serviced. Aesthetically, the bodywork elements are well aligned but some cosmetic costs will be expected to restore it to its former glory. Easy to handle, comfortable and presented here at an extremely attractive price, this Jaguar Type E V12 is an entry ticket into the world of vintage cars through the big door!
This car will be sold by auction by AGUTTES Auction House, in Lyon, France, on November the 9th, 2019.
