Arguably the most well recognized sports car of the 20th century, the E-type has a perfect combination of curvaceous lines and high-performance. It is still igniting passions today, just as it did when first revealed to the public back in 1961.
The iconic Jaguar E-Type has evolved over the years. The initial 3.8-liter model had a lack of footwell space, uncomfortable seats, massive brake fade and an engine prone to overheating – yet it was loved. Ten years and numerous improvements later, Jaguar launched a V12 engine in its E-Type, transforming it with an infusion of torque and horsepower. Along with the engine, other more plush modifications were made, including power steering and power brakes. The result was a very fine and quite sophisticated, grand touring car.
The 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 featured here is finished in a classic and elegant British Racing green colour with a well-preserved biscuit leather interior and a black soft top.
It was delivered new Left-Hand-Drive to the United States, NY in 1973 and stayed in America until 2005, when it was sold to the Netherlands.
The Dutch owner kept the car for 9 years and ordered a complete restoration of the body, paint and interior in 2008. The job was done by Classic Restorations Holland.
This Jaguar E-type Series III still has its number matching V12 engine, is in good condition and drives well. It was bought in January 2014 by its current owner, a Belgian passionate who cherished the car for 8 years and enjoyed participating to various car rallyes. The counter shows a mileage of a bit more than 57.000 Km.
