PostHeaderIcon Restoration: The Beautiful 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series 3

Restorations are always fun; the beauty of retro aligning with the technology of today, the old-school interiors getting a touch of modern material. While car lovers take this up as a task and do it themselves, there are professional companies which also do it. One such company is E-type UK, which specializes in restoring only the Jaguar E-Type models. This time around, they have restored a 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series 3.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar E-Type Zero

Back in March of 1961, Jaguar unveiled the E-Type, and it wasn’t long before the world fell in love with its long hoodline, curvaceous hips, and sonorous 3.8-liter six-cylinder soundtrack. Enzo Ferrari, a man with no shortage of good looking metal at his disposal, remarked that it was the “most beautiful car ever made,” and in the more than half century that followed its release, the E-Type has remained a mainstay of automotive splendor for enthusiasts across the globe. These days, the E-Type has served as the basis for a variety of special editions and reimaginings, but now, JLR is taking its iconic two-door into uncharted water. Say hello to the E-Type Zero, an all-electric iteration that promises the same distinctive driving experience as the original, but with no gasoline involved.

Scheduled for presentation at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest on September 8th, the E-Type Zero was restored and converted by Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in Coventry, which, JLR points out, isn’t far from “where the [original] E-Type was born.” Based on a 1.5 Series Roadster from 1968, the Zero is an almost completely all-original spec, except for the powertrain, obviously. “Our aim with E-Type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership,” says Tim Hanning, Director at Jaguar Land Rover Classic. “We’re looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market.” That’s right, folks – a production iteration could be in the works. Read on for the details.

PostHeaderIcon Replica Go Karts Fetch Tremendous Prices At Mecum Auctions

Millions upon millions of dollar flew all over the place over the weekend during the Mecum auction at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. A 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 had top billing when it sold for a whopping $22.5 million, becoming the most expensive British car in history. A collection of road-going Ferraris combined for $16.5 million, including a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB that sold for $8.3 million. Even Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita found a new owner who paid a cool $2.8 million for it. Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the auction were four vehicles that look the part of classics from yesteryear, but are actually miniaturized replica go-karts. It’s quite amusing considering that of all the cars that did sell for at least seven figures, these four go-karts were stars of the show in their own right.

Don’t feel bad if you mistake any of these cars – a Ferrari 330 P2 Le Mans, a 1956 “Baby Ferrari” Bimbo Racer, a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, and a 1961 Jaguar E-Type Junior – for the real things in the pictures. Look at them in person, though, and it’s clear that they’re mini replicas. Still, it doesn’t take away from the sheer awesomeness of these cars, which really aren’t your typical go-karts either, since some of them do carry materials like a steel chassis and a fiberglass body. And for what their worth, they were actually sold for impressive prices, including one that fetched a price tag that would’ve otherwise been close enough to buy an actual, brand-new Mercedes CLA-Class Coupe.

PostHeaderIcon Peruvian Man Professes His Love For His Jaguar E-Type: Video

Every automaker has a model that’s regarded as the best it has ever built. In the case of Jaguar, that model is the E-Type. Naturally, those who are fortunate enough to still own one of these models keep them in as good a condition as possible. Then there’s Miguel Rodrigo, a Peruvian architect who loves his 1964 Jaguar E-Type Roadster so much he doesn’t keep it tucked in his garage to collect dust. Instead, he drives the E-Type as much as he can, even admitting to driving it “from border to border” twice.

I’m not exactly sure what borders Rodrigo is referring to since Peru has five of them, but his point is crystal clear. He is getting as much enjoyment as he can from his prized E-Type the way any car enthusiast should.

Rodrigo loves his E-Type so much that he’s actually used it in a number of racing events, none more notable than Peru’s version of the Cannonball rally. True to form, the E-Type obliterated the opposition in the race, finishing four hours ahead of the eventual runner-up. It’s a remarkable achievement considering how far Rodrigo had to go just so he could have an opportunity to not only buy the classic Jag in a U.S. auction, but also have it shipped to Peru legally.

Then again, these are the kind of lengths we go to for the cars that we truly love. There’s no challenge hard enough for us to conquer if it means being rewarded with a car that we’ve dreamt about for years.

That’s the story of Miguel Rodrigo and his Jaguar E-Type. It’s a perfect example of a man, his car, and the rewards of passion and determination.


PostHeaderIcon Evo Reviews The Jaguar Lightweight E-Type: Video

The Back to the Future DeLorean may be the poster child of time-traveling cars, but if there’s one vehicle that can be best described as its real-life equivalent – minus the time-travelling paraphernalia – it has to be the Jaguar Lightweight E-Types. Built initially by Jaguar in 1963, the company’s plan was to release 18 units of the track-purpose vehicle. For one reason or another, the company was only able to build 12, leaving the last six designated chassis numbers in storage for the better part of 50 years. It wasn’t until 2014 when Jaguar dusted off these numbers and built the final six models of the Lightweight E-Type, using period correct building methods mixed in with modern design technology. More importantly, these cars were built to FIA’s homologation requirements for historic racing.

The Lightweight E-Type is as authentic a blast from the past as you can get in the business today. Recently, EVO managed to get its hands on one of the six “old-new” models of the Lightweight E-Type and as you can expect, the car looked absolutely pristine, exuding the classic look of its older brothers while also benefiting from modern-day technology to make it look and run better.

I can’t even begin to tell you how jealous I was watching this video. As awesome as it might be to sit behind the wheel of today’s supercars, I’d gladly give up a chance to drive any of them if it means getting to drive the Lightweight E-Type. Forget about the experience of driving it, I just want to be in its vicinity, soaking up all the stories it has to tell.

Check out the video and tell me you won’t feel the same way after watching it.


PostHeaderIcon Barn-Find 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster Will Be Auctioned In May

You’ll have a hard time finding a better-preserved, original E-Type than this. It’s not concours quality, but that’s for stuffy people who like to wear funny hats while looking at cars on a golf course. This 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster has far more character, and it’s crossing the block at the upcoming Silverstone Auctions event at the Silverstone Circuit in England on May 23.

Though it was found in a barn-like structure, calling it a “barn find” is actually a little misleading. After covering just 7,700 miles since new, it was meticulously cared for by one family through three generations. The original owner’s son had it “properly immobilized” as an investment by injecting oil into the cylinders and storing it in a heated brick barn in 1996. Three years later the car passed on to his son, who put it in a dehumidified air bubble storage unit. The car remained there until 2006, when it was moved to the farm shed where it was “found” late last year.
