YEAR / REG:
‘The V12 E-Type was at its best as a long-distance, high-speed tourer. There were few cars which could match its top speed and 120/130mph cruising ability, even amongst the exotica from Italy, and none at all the silence and smoothness of its engine.’ – Paul Skilleter, The Jaguar E-Type.
This as a very rare and exclusive E-Type, one of 50 special V12 roadsters built to commemorate the end of the model’s production in 1974. The chassis number sequence commenced at ‘2822’ and ended with ‘2872’, all bar one of the 50 cars being finished in black. Its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate reveals that this E-Type was distributed by Henlys and sold via H R Owen, London. The original registration was ‘XYE 535N’.
First registered on 27th October 1975 to one W H Joodall, chassis number ‘1S2835’ is one of only 19 manual transmission cars in this series. In April 1977 (at 3,000 miles), the car passed on to the second owner and remained in the same ownership in Germany for the last 41 years. Presented in accident-free, un-restored, and outstandingly original condition this most collectible of V12 E-Types is offered by Quinela Racing Group as one of it’s jewels in the crown. A remarkable example.
