Introduced in 3.8 litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type and, indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150, and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. This lefthand drive Series I was imported to the UK from Ottawa at the beginning of 2014 when it was stripped down ready for re-painting. At the same time, the engine and gearbox were removed and when the rebuild started, the opportunity was taken to replace the clutch assembly, replace the gearbox seals and fit a new clutch slave cylinder. The car still has its original 3.8 litre cylinder block but has been fitted with a later 4.2 litre cylinder head. Before refitting to the E-Type, a number of other items were checked and restored. This included rebuilding the braking system, supplying and fitting a 'spin-on' oil filter, overhauling the prop-shaft and fitting a new exhaust system. Finished in Signal Red with black interior, this exceptional example is supplied with the paperwork for registration in the UK including an MoT test certificate which expires in January 2016 and the Ottawa registration document. Also with the car is a file of invoices which show the works carried out in the UK during 2014. This icon from the 1960s is regarded as one of the most beautiful cars ever built and is one of the most useable investments in the world; not only as part of a car collection, but for use at rallies and special events.
