A serial Jaguar owner who had had the pleasure of piloting an ex-Ecurie Ecosse C-Type on the Mille Miglia Storica, the late Richard Colton commissioned `NBD 2' from Bryan Wingfield of DRL Engineering during summer 1991. A recognised master in his field, Wingfield's customer base at the time encompassed Francesco Scianna, Edward Harrison and Sir Anthony Bamford. One of only a few such `Lightweight' Roadster Evocations to be completed (some sources put the number as low as eight), it utilised a 1969 E-Type 2+2 donor car. The work of renowned specialist RS Panels, the re-born Jaguar's alloy monocoque was reinforced via the use of steel for its floor, front / rear bulkheads and internally braced sills not to mention a Safety Devices rollover bar. Lighter yet stiffer than its production equivalent, the resultant bi-metal structure was fitted with uprated suspension (rose-jointed anti-roll bars, adjustable shock absorbers) and more efficient brakes (XJ6 callipers). Built by Dave Butcher, the 3.8 litre engine featured D-type camshafts and triple Weber carburettors etc. Reputed to develop 282bhp and 275lbft of torque, the straight-six was allied to a five-speed manual Getrag gearbox.
