About this Jaguar E-Type

Finished in Factory Jaguar Light Blue with Dark Blue Leather interior, This UK Supplied car first registered in Brecknockshire (or at least its ‘MEU 390L’ number plate would imply), the E-type is said to have ‘benefited from localised paintwork repairs and polishing of the original chrome, while recent mechanical repairs amount to just over £3500.00. The car is fitted with a Kenlowe fan and a rear seat belt to the offside. Said to have had just one additional owner during the past twenty-nine years, the Coupe was treated to various restoration works during the 1990s (with invoices to prove). Believed but not warranted to have covered some 59,600 miles from new, ‘MEU 390L’ unusually sports an overdrive switch atop the gear lever of its four-speed manual gearbox. By 1971, Jaguar's jaw-dropping E-Type had been in production for a decade. Despite continual improvements, new emissions legislation in the all-important American market threatened to strangle the big cat's performance. Jaguar responded by giving its revered sports car fresh claws in the shape of a 5343cc V12 developed from the stillborn XJ13 Le Mans project car. The new engine was both effortlessly powerful and eerily refined. With some 272bhp and 304lbft of torque on tap, the Series 3 E-Type once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space, while a wider track front and rear, new anti-dive front suspension geometry and fatter tyres improved the road holding. Imbued with a more muscular stance thanks to its flared wheelarches, re-profiled wings and larger grille, it also benefited from vented disc brakes and a restyled interior.
