VIN# UC1S73745

Originally designed for Jaguar by Malcolm Sayer as a replacement for the legendary D-Type, the E-Type has always been known as one of the most desirable automotive designs ever. None other than Enzo Ferrari called it “the most beautiful automobile in the world”, and nothing could touch its performance throughout the late 60’s. Its perennial top position on nearly every desirable automotive list in the world is testament to the design and the performance.

After years of testing and development, the company introduced its first production V-12 to the market in 1971. The new 5.3-litre V-12 was the first mass-produced V-12 to come to market in over 20 years and Jaguar’s first new engine since the début of the post-war XK120 in 1948. Jaguar widened the front and rear track to accommodate the new power, which also necessitated a longer hood with a low mounted air intake and larger grille. Flared wheel arches accommodate larger tires necessary to handle the increase in top speed. The “Big Cat” could easily reach 145 MPH, and could achieve 0-60 MPH in less than 7 seconds.
