Brief History

At its launch at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 1961, the E-Type not only stole the show but every headline.

Enzo Ferrari described the Jaguar as the most beautiful car in the world, and few many regard the original Coupé and Roadster models as perfect from every angle.
However, Jaguar nearly only had one E-Type on display at the Geneva show. Sir William Lyons, the founder and boss of Jaguar, ordered a second to Geneva only days before the show. This meant a last minute dash from Coventry to Geneva in an E-Type Roadster by Norman Dewis, Jaguar's now renowned test driver.

The story of the E-Type started long before this legendary eleventh-hour dash, though. It’s clear to see D-Type Le Mans racer's influence on the E-Type's lines the E-Type’s lines, and the 3.8-litre straight-six engine was sourced from the XK.

This 1963 Jaguar E Type for sale has undergone a complete paint restoration and is complemented with a brand-new red leather interior with matching carpets.

Originally supplied as a left-hand drive and imported around 2015.

The restoration has been sympathetic to preserve the original character of the car. The car has not undergone a complete mechanical restoration but runs and drives very well.
A recent engine service has been undertaken and the rear wheel bearings have been replaced.

This is a very iconic classic which certainly stands out wherever you are.
