The E-Type Jaguar is, without doubt, one of the most significant classic motorcars ever penned. Its flowing lines, created just by eye and intuition, caused the head of Ferrari to doubt himself and it instantly became the car to be seen in and coveted by millions, young and old. The Series I was launched in, arguably, its purist form with, in 1968, the Series II following on. Modifications included open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, tail lights below the bumpers and uprated brakes. The 4.2 litre engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more 'ribbed' appearance. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned, with rocker switches being substituted for toggle switches.
This righthand drive Jaguar E-Type Series II Coupé was supplied by Henlys in London to Mr. J. James for him to be able to export it in December 1969. Originally supplied in Ascot Fawn with a Cinnamon interior, the car has been the subject to a restoration a few years ago changing the colour scheme to Old English White and replacing the leather with dark blue hide. This E-Type has recently been imported to the UK from Austria where it was owned by Franz List, the renowned superyacht interior designer. The car is currently being UK registered and is supplied with an MoT test certificate which expires on the 27th May 2021, German registration documents and a copy of the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Described by the vendor as a genuine example in thoroughly useable condition, this fixedhead coupé is a British style icon.
