The 1968 Series I E-Type Coupé, also known as the Jaguar XK-E, is a classic sports car that was produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar between 1961 and 1975. The Series I models are highly sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts alike due to their striking design and impressive performance. Under the hood, the 1968 Series I E-Type Coupé featured a 4.2 litre straight-six engine capable of producing up to 265 horsepower, which was mated to a four-speed manual transmission. This engine allowed the car to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 6.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 150mph.

This immaculate E-Type has benefitted from a nut and bolt restoration. In addition to the impressive works completed this coupé has been fitted with electric power steering, a five-speed gearbox and air conditioning. Other upgrades include electronic ignition, an aluminium header tank and a bespoke six branch stainless steel exhaust system. Originally registered in April of 1968, this E-Type presents wonderfully in Opalescent Silver Blue over a Dark Blue leather interior. The beautiful leather trim in this Jaguar was fitted by renowned auto trimmers Suffolk and Turley. Very few miles have been covered since the restoration that the vendor advises a running in by the new owner. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, an original buff logbook and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this E-Type is a serious contender for one of the best we have seen.
