There is no denying the legendary status that is enjoyed by the Jaguar E-Type, from its arrival on the motoring scene in 1961 until the final car was built in 1975, this sports car from Coventry had an impact that is still felt today. Even with its sportscar heritage, Jaguar depended on saloon vehicles for its survival and had developed its twelve-cylinder engine to power them with sufficient torque and refinement. Larger and softer in nature with weight redistributed 53/47, the Series III had lost the wilds of its youth but gained the long-legged touring profile to which it was arguably better suited.
Originally registered in July 1973, this 2+2 coupé presents well in Primrose Yellow with cream leather upholstery. This usable automatic example benefits from a Webasto sunroof and has been owned by the vendor since 2005. During her tenure this car has been used infrequently and always dry stored. The history file for this classic Coventry cat contains recent servicing work, a V5C registration document and, although exempt, a fresh MoT test certificate. Realistically estimated this Jaguar offers an opportunity to own a most iconic British classic.
