Description

The Jaguar E-Type (a.k.a. Jaguar XK-E) is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. More than 70,000 E-Types were sold. A new 5.3 L twelve-cylinder Jaguar V12 engine was introduced, with uprated brakes and standard power steering. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued and the V12 was available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille and flared wheel arches, and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. There were also a very limited number of six-cylinder Series 3 E-Types built. These were featured in the initial sales literature.

This lovely 2+2 V12 example is presented in red withb its original black leather interior, showing a nice patina, comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and various maintenance invoices which can been seen on file. The file also contains photographs of the car’s partial restoration which included the overhaul of the rear transmission and a body respray.
