Possibly the definitive Jaguar connoisseur's dream collectable - An original Jaguar launch E-Type, in Carmen Red with black trim.

Not only does it have the much revered 'flat floors' and 'outside bonnet locks' but in fact a whole myriad of other specific very early features.

As car No.27 there are in fact a great many parts that could be considered 'pre production' and these have all been greatly considered and preserved wherever possible during the intensive and careful restoration.

The history is interesting and has been summarised in a magazine feature which is present in the history file. The feature includes a photographic record of the restoration and describes how the car became part of the special collection of a respected American Jaguar aficionado who subsequently dedicated much time and effort on this particular piece of his collection.

In 1968 this particular E-Type starred in the film "Don't raise the bridge, lower the water" starring Jerry Lewis, Terry Thomas, Bernard Cribbins and a young Patricia Routledge and a snippet of the car crossing Tower Bridge can be seen to the right.

The heritage certificate confirms its original purpose as launch model for Jaguar House of Oxford, having been distributed by Henly's of London on the 13th June 1961, and that the existing colour combination and specification is correct.

This is the actual car used in the original E-Type guide book; 'Factory Original - Jaguar E-Type' to define the 3.8 models. The book is the official Jaguar Heritage originality bible.

It is also the actual car featuring on a set of six Royal Mail first class stamps depicting six definitive British classic cars.

It is in fabulous and pristine condition today and represents a very special opportunity.

Every E-Type we sell can be converted to left or right hand drive, and can also benefit from our world-renowned Eagle upgrades. Learn about the Eagle Difference here.
