The Jaguar E-Type was 10 years old and needed new life. History
repeated itself and it was a huge success when Jaguar debuted its
robust new engine in a sportscar instead of the saloon for which it
was designed. Despite its sportscar heritage. Jaguar depended on
saloon vehicles for its survival and had developed its twelve
cylinder engine to power them with sufficient torque and
refinement. Larger and softer in nature with weight redistributed
53/47. the Series III had lost the wilds of its youth but gained
the long legged touring profile to which it was arguably better
suited. Robert Bell in Motor was quoted as saying at the time that
they all expected to try a new engine but what in fact they drove
was a new car. Not a yowling. aggressive Ferrari-like machine with
which. perhaps. most people associate a V12 engine but a very
smooth. quiet and refined grand touring sports car.

This stunning righthand drive Series III has only covered 9. 00
miles from new. It was purchased by Mr. J. M. McPherson in February
1975 and kept until October of the same year when he took delivery
of his new XJS. he had only covered about 4. 00 miles in the ten
months of his ownership. The next owner Mr. Joy James Cook
purchased the car at the end of October 1975. he was an avid
enthusiast of the E-Type and owned two other examples. We are
told that he genuinely used the 4. 2 litre. old English white
roadster leaving his two V12 roadsters in the garage. In 2001. with
his health failing. he bequeathed this V12 E-type to the current
vendor while in his employment; it had covered just 9. 00 miles. Mr
Cook passed away in 2004 and the ownership passed to the seller.
Included in the history file there is a Statutory Declaration from
Mr Cook's solicitors confirming the change of ownership along with
confirmation that they knew of this car in the early 1980's and
that it had only covered 6. 00 miles at that time. Also in the
history file are a number of old MoT test certificates and
insurance valuation certificates which also confirm the low mileage
of this car. Finished in Azure Blue with tan leather interior. this
V12 roadster has recently been re-commissioned and been the subject
of an extensive valet which has brought this car to better than
showroom condition. This stunning roadster is supplied with a V5C
registration document. old registration documents. an MoT test
certificate which expires in July 2015. the original handbook and
service book and history file. It is a unique. low mileage example
of which Enzo Ferrari called "The most beautiful car ever
