Ten years after the original and sensational Jaguar E-Type was launched the series III was introduced in 1971 with a new 5.3 litre, V12 engine, uprated brakes and power steering as standard. This new model also benefitted from a longer wheelbase offering significantly more room in all directions. Easily recognisable with a large front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, four exhaust tips and a rear boot mounted badge proclaiming its V12 power unit, the new model offered a huge improvement to comfort and power.
Originally registered on 6th March 1972, this Jaguar is a genuine UK supplied righthand drive example. This well sorted car benefits from a fuel injected HE engine and a Richmond six speed gearbox, it is described by its engineer owner as being a sensational drive that certainly isn’t for the ‘faint-hearted’. The mechanical enhancements have been matched by photographic rebuild which included a quality respray and the fitting of a new interior, the pinnacle of which is a stunning wooden dashboard with later dials. This powerful Coventry cat has also, reassuringly, received a new braking system. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and recent MoT test certificate, this increasingly popular model is available without reserve.
