A truly stunning example

Fantastic track car.

Right from the moment deliveries commenced in 1961, the E-Type began to find its way on to the world’s racetracks. In the Grand Touring class for production sports cars the E-Type proved competitive right from the start, Graham Hill celebrating the model’s racing debut by winning at Oulton Park on 3rd April 1961.

The elevation of the GT class to Manufacturers’ Championship status for 1963 prompted Jaguar to develop a small batch of very special lightweight cars to challenge Ferrari. The FIA’s regulations for the Gran Turismo category stipulated that a minimum of 100 cars had to be built, but permitted coachwork modifications, thus enabling Jaguar to claim that its lightweights were standard E-types fitted with altered bodywork. (This is the same loophole exploited by Ferrari to get the limited edition 250 GTO homologated, by claiming that they were re-bodied 250 GTs).

DD Classics are proud to offer this stunning “Semi Lightweight” example, the car has a steel tub with an aluminium bonnet, roof, doors, rear wings & boot lid. Its body is finished in a beautiful Balmoral Green and features the “Z2” race number. Inside, its stripped back ‘lightweight’ interior remains in fabulous condition, with genuine lightweight “E” seats, pedals and chronometric gauges etc. it is truly a special place to be.

As one would expect, this E-Type provides a thrilling driving experience that is difficult to beat thanks its close ratio box and a 3.8 litre engine which produces 300 BHP.

In 09/10 this stunning car was restored to an astonishing standard, having over €48,000 worth of work carried out. It is an incredible example that should be viewed at the earliest opportunity.

Now available for viewing at the DD Classics Dealership in London, please call 0208 878 3355 for more information.
