JAGUAR 'E' TYPE V12 ROADSTER (1973) £80,000
- Location: Bristol, United Kingdom
Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing, established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring, with more than 70,000 E Types sold during its production lifespan.
With the series 3 (1971 to 1974), the all-new 5.3 litre V12 engine was introduced, as was up rated brakes and power steering provided as standard. The V12 was available only as a convertible and 2 plus 2 coupe. The convertible used the longer wheelbase 2 plus 2 floor pan, which was the last iteration of the marque.
This particular car has stunning yellow coachwork, with contrasting dark blue leather interior, matching Wilton carpets and dark blue soft top/ hood cover. The silky smooth V12 engine gives effortless performance, coupled to a seamless automatic gearbox, complimented by a supple and compliant ride, making this an excellent long distance tourer and a real practical investment asset.
Vehicle history: Only 3 previous owners. The last owner purchased the car in 1980 when it was only seven years old and has been maintained to a very high standard. The history file contains all previous MOT certificates and receipts for work to verify the low mileage of 33,558 from new. The car has benefitted from a complete repaint (3 years ago) which has remained superb due to it being stored when not in use in a dehumidified heated environment.
