1971 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Litre Coupé

Chassis no. 1R21027   Engine no. 7R13622


The Jaguar E-Type is a British automobile legend; manufactured by Jaguar between 1961 and 1975. It combined good looks, high performance and competitive pricing that instantly captured the imagination of the British public at the time and it has remained a truly iconic piece of British motoring history since.  It was voted “the most beautiful car of all time” by the Daily Telegraph in 2008 and in 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the decade. On the cars public release in 1961 Enzo Ferrari called it "The most beautiful car ever made”.

Hallmarks of Series 2 cars are open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged "mouth" and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial "ribbed" appearance; the UK supplied cars which ours is retained triple SUs and the much tighter valve clearances. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were substituted for toggle switches. New seating was also introduced which without doubt is a much more comfortable than the previous series

Our car was supplied new in January 1971; having had only 5 registered keepers from new. We understand that one of the previous owners John Wade dry stored the car in 1986 for 20 years after having a complete engine overhaul. The last custodian of this superb Jaguar Steven Warsop whom acquired the Jaguar in October 2007 commenced a sympathetic restoration to a very high standard; to include the repaint in British Racing Green Metallic,  new bonnet, stainless steel exhaust system, new wheels and tyres, new lights, heated rear screen and a brake and suspension overhaul.

This Series ll E-Type Coupé are a rare model to find with only 1071 cars ever produced, so to find another in this exceptional condition as this example is, we believe represents a superb opportunity to acquire a very original car that has been beautifully maintained throughout its life. Available for immediate viewing at our central London showrooms          £69,995.00
