Our Jaguar E-Type Roadster is a Series II 4.2 litre version, made in the last year of SII production, being built in 1970.  By the end of 1970 the Series II was discontinued as the Series III E-Type Jaguar was being built with its 5.3 litre V12 engine, ready for the 1971 launch.

The car is an original UK Right Hand Drive car built to UK specification. It is fitted with the 4.2 litre version of the famous six cylinder Jaguar XK engine, equipped with three, 2 inch SU carburettors and free from the emission control equipment that was fitted to the US specification twin Stromberg cars.  Jaguar claimed that the E-Type developed 265 bhp but it is more generally believed to be around 250 bhp.

 

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Jaguar convertible sportscar for the ultimate self-drive Jaguar E-Type experience.

 

We have a huge amount of history with this car, right from the bill for its first service through to details of its full rebuild about 15 years ago. This included much work on the body including a full respray in Carmen Red and rebuilding the engine, gearbox and suspension.  In 2015 we fitted a new bonnet assembly, once Jaguar started re-manufacturing them, and repainted the car.

 

The leather seats are trimmed in black with red piping and to keep the colour scheme going we have installed red seat belts. 

 

Height and weight restrictions: Although the E-Type has a very long bonnet and appears to be a big car, the cockpit is very small and narrow, the doors are fairly short and there is limited headroom when the hood is raised.  Therefore anyone over 6ft 2in tall (1.88m) or weighing over 18st (252 lbs, 114 kilos) will probably not fit in the car.  In February 2016 we fitted a removable steering wheel to our E-Type so it can be removed to make getting in or out of the car easier, but this doesn't change the overall size limits of who can comfortably fit in the car.  

 

To keep our Jaguar E-Type in pristine condition, we take it off the road during the Winter when salt is used on the roads to clear frost and snow so the E-Type is only available for hire from the beginning of April through to the end of November.
