The Jaguar E-Type is. arguably. the most beautiful motorcar of
all time. It has evolved and changed with the market it served and
has successfully made the transition into motorsport with great
success. It is also extremely flexible in the myriad of ways it can
be modified from standard whilst still maintaining is gorgeous
profile but enhancing the driver experience.

Briggs Cunningham was a force of nature in the USA in the
1950's. building and successfully racing his own cars. providing
support for other teams and even winning the Americas Cup in his
spare time. His trade mark 'white with blue stripes' colour scheme
was the first time stripes appeared on a racing car. a tradition
the Carroll Shelby then used to equally great effect.

This lefthand drive E-Type is a tribute then to the legendary
Briggs Cunningham; presented. as it is. with his special livery and
combined with some upgraded performance to match. Appropriately
enough. it was acquired in the US by Clive Skilton. an ex-Santa Pod
champion when he went to America to run a Chrysler dealership. It
was in a less than perfect condition at that point and his plan to
restore it took place over the next few years with a comprehensive
history detailed in two leather bound history files.

Skilton though. not satisfied with a standard Series I example. br/>went to great time and expense to de-seam the entire car. removing
bumpers and giving it that purposeful competition look. The front
brake discs are drilled for additional cooling with air-ducts to
the rear in-board ones. The rear shock absorbers are
adjustable and there is an adjustable front anti-roll bar
fitted.

In addition. a professional. plumbed-in. fire extinguisher
system can be found alongside a full roll cage. fuel cell and. a
rare addition. an Aquasump which ensures correct oil pressure at
all times. There is also an uprated Mallory distributer and the
battery has been moved amidships to the rear bulkhead with an
external cut-out as per MSA regulations. More recently however. it
is thought that in about 2011. specialist Anthony Brazzo of
Diato. com. imported the car and passed it onto XK racer. Michael
Ridley.

There is ample scope to take this racing in the UK where it
would be extremely well received. if the exhaust note is anything
to go by. or simply used as a fast road car with huge kerb
presence. Either way. with good quality Series I's regularly
hitting six figures. this is an exciting prospect that has been
well prepared. stands out from the rest and is very well priced
indeed.
