We are proud to offer a rather special Jaguar E-Type Coupé that
has been built into a lightweight road/race machine. The car was
originally supplied to the North American market and was
repatriated back into the UK during the 1990s. In 1999. Jack
Brabham drove the car at the launch of the Everyman Motorsport
Classic Car Experience at Brands Hatch and from this time. the car
has been cared for by the Jaguar specialist. John Arnold of Revival
Motorsport. John is regarded as one of the best Jaguar
specialists in the UK today. His ability to build reliable fast
road/race cars with exceptional handling is renown within
knowledgeable circles. Within the past two years. John has
transformed and rebuilt the car. into a lightweight E-Type with
Series I features.

The works involved the fitting of lightweight aluminium doors. br/>aluminium bonnet. a composite rear hatch that houses the Le Mans
fuel filler and re-modelling the rear end. Mechanically. the
specification further impresses and a short résumé includes; the
engine having been rebuilt using forged Rob Beere pistons. wide
blade connecting rods and a big valve cylinder head that includes
Rob Beere camshafts. The fuel is supplied from the 90 litre alloy
fuel tank via the triple Weber DCOE carburettors with the exhaust
gases exiting via the sand bent exhaust manifolds (costing £2500).
The cooling system incorporates an alloy radiator and header tank.
Power is in the region of 340 bhp. Drive is provided by an alloy
flywheel. AP Triple Green 9. 5 inch clutch and a short tail shaft
Getrag Jaguar gearbox to a 3. 07:1 Powerlok differential. The
handling is supplied by a lightweight geometry set up with
adjustable Gaz shock absorbers. torsion bars at front with coil
overs at the rear and billet aluminium steering arms attached to a
new steering rack. The steering column has been overhauled top and
bottom which is a job often neglected. The brakes are four pot
callipers with vented discs to the front with twin pot callipers to
the rear.

On the inside this E-Type does not disappoint; the seats are alloy
framed and trimmed in black leather with lightweight door panels
and bespoke door pulls. The rev counter and odometer are electronic
D-Type style with the standard auxiliary instruments. set into a
Series I alloy panel. keeping the driver well informed.

8WXL is supplied with a UK registration. an MoT test certificate
valid until 6th November 2014 and Historic road fund licence valid
until the end of April 2015.
This magnificent Jaguar is well presented and looks fabulous
sitting upon its black dummy replica Dunlop peg alloy wheels. Not
only that. driving the car. it is clear that this is one of the
finest performance and handling Jaguar E-Types. built by one of the
UK's leading specialists and therefore. surely a must given the
estimate.
