When Jaguar unveiled its E-Type at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961, it was a complete surprise. It was a surprise because no one had received any prior information about the Coventry-based brand's future Grand Touring, and also because the E-Type's styling totally captivated the crowds. A line signed by William Lyons, a sporty yet comfortable chassis and first-class performance characterized the new Jaguar E-Type.

Technical info

Full description

Our Jaguar 3.8L Roadster was delivered to the American dealer in New York on August 14th 1963. After a quiet life in the USA, our car was imported to Europe and modified in 2011 by Martin O'Connell Racing. It's a Semi-Lightweight specification race car with a steel monocoque, dressed up with an aluminum bonnet, hard top, boot and doors. It then passed to Pearson Engineering who will take over the complete set up before we source the car for one of our customers in December 2019. The gearbox is a fully synchronized Denis Welch close-ratio, with power transmitted via a racing clutch to an oil-cooled limited-slip differential. Jaguar Mk9 front calipers, Dunlop magnesium alloy wheels, etc... The cast iron 'straight port' engine was rebuilt in 2023 by AS Classic Engineering (Alexandre SURBERE), who has just serviced it after 10 hours on the track. A recent visit to the power bench revealed 320 bhp and 417Nm of torque.
Our E-Type has proved to be a very fast and reliable Jaguar with successes in the HSCC, the Masters and the E-Type Challenge. It has also competed at Goodwood in the dedicated E-Type race, as well as in the VSCC's Pomeroy Trophy, finishing 5th overall, and more recently in Peter Auto's Le Mans Classic and Sixties' Endurance.
Accompanied by an FIA International PTH valid until the end of 2030, this E-Type has always performed well and been extremely reliable. It comes with a set of spare wheels, a spare gearbox to rebuild and a host of spare parts to give you peace of mind for any race.
It's ready for the 2024 season!
