Considered by many to be the quintessential British Sports Car, the Jaguar E-Types unveiling in 1961 caused a sensation both with the press and in the public eye. Admirers came from all walks of life; even Enzo Ferrari referred to it as the most beautiful car ever made. Beneath its gorgeous looks was a revolutionary sports car with rack and pinion steering, fully independent suspension, and four wheel disc brakes with inward rear rotors. All of this was propelled by the already proven performance of the XK engine. The Series II E-Type was released in 1968 and continued the trend of strong performance and handling mated with an iconic shape. Improvements were plentiful and included an increased grille opening to aid in cooling as well as a more refined interior that satisfied even the sportiest of drivers. All Series II E-types featured the larger 4.2 litre engine, which was good for over 240hp in U.S. specification. With further refinements, proven performance and stylish lines, it is no wonder why examples have become highly sought-after by classic Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts. The incredible 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning, factory correct color combination of black over an impeccably kept Cinnamon leather interior over a matching black folding convertible top. According the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this particular example was completed in February 1970 and was subsequently dispatched through British Leyland in New York. The Jaguar has been in the care of single family ownership dating back to 1972 and the car is still accompanied by a Connecticut title from the same period! The numbers matching 4.2 Litre engine is still in place and has been tastefully upgraded to European specifications with Triple SU Carburation, resulting in an estimated 265hp! Today this desirable Series II Jaguar E-type performs wonderfully all the while a mere 65,267 miles are present on the odometer! We are proud to offer this stunning 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster to the most astute collector investor or enthusiast who appreciates the performance, handling and design of these iconic British sports cars.
