The Jaguar E-Type Series I 2+2 was designed to be a more practical version of the legendary E-Type, with a longer wheelbase and additional interior space. It was produced from 1966 to 1970, and it featured a 4.2 litre inline-six engine that produced 265 horsepower. One of the most notable features of the 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series I 2+2 is its sleek and timeless design. The car has a long, flowing hood and a low-slung profile that gives it a sense of speed and power. The body of the car is made of lightweight aluminium, which helps to reduce its overall weight and improve its performance.

This coupé was originally registered in July 1968 and presents extremely well in Old English White coachwork which is complemented with a dark blue leather interior. This original right hand drive example has recently benefitted from some light recommissioning which included the fitting of a new clutch. We are informed that this classic Jaguar drives well and has the practicality of rear seats. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, various invoices and previous MoT test certificates and despite being exempt by age an MoT test certificate valid until May 2024. The timeless quality of this Jaguar E-Type is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
