Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Series 1
A Cool Classic of Cool Classics: the Jaguar E-type Series 1 4.2 Coupe. Our Series 1 FHC was built for the real driver, not for decoration. Her beautiful British Racing Green shows some patina and has 50 shades of Green. The rod behind the seats (stabilizer and belts) gives it away just a little bit. Outside of Sunday drives, you can also use this Series 1 for slightly more serious work. The trip master is present, the engine has just a little extra oomph and the sound. Well, that is simply indescribable!
The Jag is very well maintained and has its original gearbox and engine still, which makes it a matching number. This can be verified, the E-type has a Jaguar Trust Certificate.
Besides the extensive documentation and execution, this Jag is executed in one of the (we think) most beautiful color combinations. British Racing Green with a black leather interior.
The E-type Series I was introduced in Europe on March 15, 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show and in the United States in April the same year at the New York Motor Show. When the car was first shown, Enzo Ferrari, called it “The most beautiful car ever made. To this day, he is right!
The car was designed as a two-seater GT coupe (FHC) and a two-seater convertible (OTS). During the first six months, all but a few E-type’s were built with the steering wheel on the left side, mainly for the American market. Only a few were built for the British market and these were delivered to specially selected celebrities. The rest had to wait six months.
The Series 1 received a 3.8 liter 6-in-line engine that came from the XK150S. In 1964, the displacement was increased to 4.2 liters. This upgrade gave the Series 1 4.2 a top speed of 241 km/h (!). Ours also has something like larger carburetors, better cooling and an (almost) open exhaust. Necessary? Absolutely not. Fun – a Fasterpiece!!! Will we see you soon?I'm interested in this object
