Jaguar Revives The Classic E-Type Sports Car From 1960's


‘E-type reborn’ from Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘classic’ division offers people the unique opportunity to own a highly collectible ‘E-type’ with elegant aesthetics frozen for over 50 years. Limited to just ten models, each ‘e-type reborn’ starts with a base vehicle sourced by manufacturer experts and is completely restored according to original 1960s factory specification. Unique access to building records and original drawings from the Jaguar Heritage Trust, plus decades of experience in restoration up to concours-winning standard, ensure absolute authenticity. Jaguar ‘classic’ parts are used throughout, maximizing the classic sports car’s collectibility, quality, longevity.


The first jaguar ‘e-type’ to be revived is an opalescent ‘gunmetal’ grey series ‘1 4.2′ fixed head coupe. Originally exported to California in may 1965, the car recorded 78,000 miles before being stored in 1983. It retains its original matching numbers bodyshell, engine and gearbox, which have all been completely rebuilt by Jaguar ‘classic’ technicians. The ultra-rare sports car now sits proudly restored to its former glory, while any safety-critical parts are replaced with new items from Jaguar Classic Parts. Body panels from jaguar’s reverse-engineered panel program are fitted where necessary, removing corrosion and restoring the ‘E-Type's’ iconic looks. The team’s working behind the project’s meticulous attention to detail even recreates the exact type of spot-welding when refitting those panels.


‘The launch of E-type reborn is a hugely exciting development for Jaguar classic. The E-type is the most iconic sports car of all time, so we are delighted to be able to give new life to expertly selected examples for discerning customers around the world to own and enjoy,’ comments Tim Hannig, director, Jaguar Land Rover classic. He continues, ‘the resources and information available to Jaguar classic’s expert technicians are unrivalled, which results in the most authentic e-type restorations possible.’
