'If Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans has been responsible for the new E-Type Jaguar. then that Homeric contest on the Sarthe circuit will have been abundantly justified. Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market. capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal. A practical touring car. this. with its wide doors and capacious luggage space. yet it has a sheer beauty of line which easily beats the Italians at their own particular game. ' - John Bolster. Autosport.
Introduced in 3. 8-litre form in 1961. the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared. with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. Its design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3. 8-litre. triple-carburettor. 'S' unit first offered as an option on the XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed. but whatever the installed horsepower. the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly. because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. In 1965 the 4. 2-litre version arrived boasting a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear together with the bigger. torquier engine.
Proposed changes in United States automobile legislation would eventually result in the revised Series 2. announced in October 1968. though modifications began to be phased in during 1967. Externally the Series 2 was readily identifiable by its larger sidelights. raised bumpers. deleted headlight covers. twin reversing lights and square rear number plate. while the interior was revised with rocker-type dashboard switches. new seats and collapsible steering column. Beneath the skin. Ad-West power steering. Girling brake callipers and an up-rated radiator were among the many Series 2 mechanical improvements. ales at 4. 00 pounds the Excellence was made to American proportions—a Hermès suit in size 50. extra long. Featuring elegant slab sided styling with pillarless suicide doors (beating the Lincoln Continental to the punch by a full 5 years). a wrap-around windscreen and subtle fines held sway in the front and rear. respectively.
Our car drives very well. has covered about 119k Miles and is a nice presentable driving example. it will not win any awards but must be the cheapest genuine Roadster out there. Please be quick at this price.
