About this Jaguar E-Type E Type Series 3 V12 Roadster The Jaguar E-Type was ten years old and needed a new lease of life. History repeated itself and it was a huge success when Jaguar debuted its robust V12 engine in a sports car instead of the saloon for which it was designed. Despite its sports-car heritage, Jaguar depended on saloon vehicles for its survival and had developed the twelve-cylinder engine to power them with sufficient torque and refinement. Larger and softer in nature with weight redistributed 53/47, the Series III had lost the wilds of its youth but gained the long legged touring profile to which it was arguably better suited. This manual E-Type Roadster was built on 6th February 1973 and shipped to New York on 2 March 1973. It spent its life on the East Coast where it was partly restored and had a bare metal respray. The car was then shipped to Eire when its then owner relocated with his collection of Jaguars. The car was then shipped to the UK where its restoration was finished by Showco Jaguar Club near High Wycombe between April 2016 and March 2017. The interior was retrimmed in new leather and finished by TTS near Newbury along with a replacement hood. This l
