Three generations of the Jaguar E-type (Jaguar XK-E) were built between 1961 and 1974. The E-type meant a revolution in the design, performance and handling of sports cars. The Jaguar E-type holds first place on the list of best sports cars of the 1960s.

The Series III, made from 1971 to 1974, was equipped with the new Jaguar 5.3 litre V12 along with improved brakes and standard power steering. The FHC was discontinued and the series 3 only remained available as an OTS convertible and as a 2+2 coupé. The OTS used the extended chassis of the 2+2. The series 3 stood out with a different radiator grille, rimmed wheel arches and V12 on the boot emblem.

This Jaguar is in very neat and original condition (the interior, engine and transmission are all original). The vehicle starts immediately, shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears, idles nicely at 800 rpm and brakes properly. This Jaguar has beautiful spoke rims, brand new whitewall tyres (0 km), beautiful chrome and Regency Red paint that is still in neat condition.

The interior is in neat condition and has original Jaguar leather. The previous owner always stored the car indoors and it’s really noticeable. Fitted with a new soft-top a few years ago, a completely new exhaust system was fitted this month (with 0 km). The car has Zenith carburetors, air conditioning, power steering and disc brakes on all wheels.

What makes this Jaguar more popular is the fact it still has the original matching numbers engine. These Jaguar E-type convertibles are increasingly rising in value, even more so in such neat condition. So don't wait too long and seize this opportunity to become the owner of this wonderful classic which many regard as the most beautiful car ever made.
