A very iconic classic, the Jaguar E-type. Elegant, sporty, and oozing with class. In general, it can be said that the first series of the sports car introduced in 1961 can be regarded as being the most favourite. It’s the version as Malcolm Sayer originally intended it, with the small taillights sited above the bumper.
This concerns a restored first series E-type that was first admitted to public roads on February 28, 1964. This means that under the hood, there’s a very powerful 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine with three SU carburettors. Good for 265 hp and a top speed of up to 241 km/h. However, it’s the smooth and impressive way in which the ear-pleasing six-cylinder engine does its job that stands out. The substantial power is transferred to the rear wheels through a manual four-speed gearbox, delightful! When you open the enormous hood, you have a view of a fantastic engine block. The polished valve cover on the gold-coloured engine block, the incredibly beautiful carburettors: a magnificent power source.
The E-type has been beautifully restored, to an excellent quality, and in a popular colour combination. The bodywork is in excellent condition. The panel gaps are as they should be, and the bodywork is evenly thin throughout. The car stands on beautiful chrome wire wheels fitted with good tires in the correct sizes. The chrome on the bumpers, lighting, trim, door handles, everything is as expected for a car of this caliber. The car has, of course, been completely repainted, and the dark red metallic paint looks stunning.
This Jag drives fantastically. The brakes perform just as well, and the same goes for the gearbox. Although we advise you to keep this car in this beautiful condition, there’s one thing we want to emphasise even more: driving is the most enjoyable experience you will have with this car! A well-maintained chassis makes an E-type delivers exceptionally well in the handling department!
The interior is done in a beautiful natural tone and upholstered with lovely leather and materials. The upholstery has been chosen very stylishly, resulting in the leather being in beautiful condition. The rest of the interior, from floor covering to dashboard, gauges, and controls, is also very pleasing to the eye.
So, a magnificent E-type, which comes with documentation in the form of a thick folder of maintenance invoices, photos of the restoration, and various documentation. In short, a beautiful fully restored Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Coupe that’s ready for many years of limitless E-type driving pleasure.
