Jaguar E Type more beautiful than the original

CAR Jaguar Classic creates stunning E type models by restoring the 1 Series models to their original specifications. This tailor-made example goes even further by demonstrating the full range of customization possibilities offered by the team from the state-of-the-art Coventry factory.

 

This unique E type was ordered by a customer with specific requirements. The latter wanted a roadster manufactured in the year of his birth and finished to custom specifications. The Jaguar Classic team got to work and found an E-type 1 Series built just two days after the customer’s date of birth.

Jaguar E Type Completely rebuilt

Over the next 12 months, the car was completely rebuilt, starting with the bodywork. The deep metallic blue hue, inspired by the blue of the Union Jack, was obtained after several months of work and numerous consultations and samples. The bespoke interior features a leather upholstery in a red finish inspired by the famous English mailboxes and has been hand-finished using traditional methods.

Jaguar E Type A new six-cylinder

Once the body assembly and painting work were complete, the engineering team had to rehabilitate the mechanical elements with a multitude of improvements. The original 4.2-litre in-line six-cylinder engine has been replaced by a more powerful 4.7-litre combined with the 5-speed gearbox specially developed by Jaguar Classic. This ensures a smoother, quieter and more refined ride.

The reinforced suspension makes it possible to effectively exploit the performance of the powertrain, while the wider wheels, tires and brakes meet current specifications.

Connected

Modern technologies include a Classic infotainment system that combines touchscreen controls, satellite navigation and Bluetooth with a period look that fits perfectly with the rest of the vehicle. The LED headlights also meet modern standards for safer driving at night.

Although the project was largely custom-made, some elements such as the 5-speed gearbox and infotainment system are available from the Jaguar Classic team in charge of spare parts for all E-type owners.
