Description

The E type series III had the privilege to christen the brand new V12 engine from Jaguar in 1971. This superb SOHC 5.3L engine was developed after a prototype designed for Le Mans 24H. It was fed trough a 4 carbs arrangement giving 272BHP at first launch. It will produce up to 700HP in racing versions during its 25 years production time and was always famed for its reliability. This all alloy new engine was not heavier than the six in line 4.2L it was replacing but was offering a lot more flexibility and torque not to mention a hundred more horse power. As such this wonderful engine was enabling the E type SIII to rejoin the pinnacle of the world top GT cars as its predecessor the first E 3.8L did in 1962. The E type Jaguar S III boasts top notch refinement due to its power steering and new manual gearbox perfectly complementing the qualities of the new V12 engine. The car still offers legendary comfort and roadholding but now with a much improved cockpit size due to the new and only long wheel base chassis. The present car is finished in Cotswolds blue with light grey leather and blue mohair hood. It is a rare matching combination offering exclusivity and distinction. The car was delivered new to Vancouver Canada and was imported in France in 1990 by its second owner. Her third and last owner a renown collector and pilot has cherished her during nearly twenty years. She is in a remarkable condition and a 20 000€ deep maintenance job has just been completed in late 2014. She is ready to bring you tomorrow to the most scenic road trips or to enter the most prestigious events surrounded by the captivating sound of its specially developed exhaust. She comes with a specially made to measure set of leather suitcases. She is a very nice model the second most important in the E type family with a clear history.
