Description

The E-Type Jaguar debuted at the 1961 Geneva Motorshow as a replacement for the hugely successful Jaguar XK150. The new E-Type was nothing short of a revelation, with its heady blend of supercar performance, breath-taking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left its rivals reeling and customers desperate to own one. Designed by William Lyons and Malcolm Sayer, the E-Type was launched in 1961 in both fixed head coupe and roadster form with design inspiration taken from the Le-Mans winning D-Type sports racer. Built around a steel monocoque chassis with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, all-round independent suspension using coil springs and dampers to the rear with torsion bars and wishbones to the front. Brakes were Dunlop discs all round, mounted inboard to the rear alongside the differential to reduce un-sprung weight. Powered by Jaguar’s XK 3.8 litre twin-cam straight six engine, the E-Type offered breath taking performance to rival both Ferrari and Aston Martin. The 3.8 litre engine produced 265bhp and boasted a top speed of 150 mph and a 0-60 mph time of just 6.5 secs. The 1961 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Series 1 “FIA” Coupe (Registration No 6182RW) offered here at Autostorico is finished in Opalescent Grey metallic with Blue leather interior. Having been race prepared in 2002 by Colin Percy a respected Jaguar fan, who had previously owned Chassis no 860004 the original “CUT 7” and “EE400” the Equipe Endeavor Roadster Chassis no 850018. The car was then sold to Peter Lanfranchi and raced by him and his brother Tony. Latterly Barrie “Whizzo” Williams competed in the car at a number of circuits all over Europe including Le Mans with great successes. In 2017 the car was sold to John Young and has been raced by John and his son Jack. This car is a true front running Goodwood “Kinrara” Trophy competitor and it is eligible for many other high profile events such as the Tour Auto & Le Mans Classic. The car has been prepared and maintained regardless of cost. Supplied with a comprehensive history file including FIA/HTP papers valid until 2026, Current V5 registration document and numerous invoices.
