Jaguar’s first all-new engine since the XK motor of 1948, the magnificent V12, proved to be another masterpiece of engineering. Designed by Harry Mundy and Walter Hassan, the all-alloy unit displaced 5.3 litres with a single overhead camshaft per bank and developed 272 bhp. Originally intended for the new XJ sedan, Jaguar also breathed new life into the E-type by redesigning it to accommodate the new V12 and the Series III was launched in 1971 in both roadster and 2+2 guise.
