This Jaguar is a power beast and performs and sounds like a cat on steroids
Built in Coventry, England, this car is one of 15,290 EType Series III models made between 1971 and 1975.
Finished in British Racing Green, the cars paint and trim are in overall very good order, however there are blemishes on the drivers side of the rear deck and a dimple in the bonnet. The cars bodywork is solid and straight, the custom engine bay is in very good order while the black, folding top is in good, original shape. The chrome bladed bumpers are in good, original order but there are scuffs on the rear one.
More details on the turbocharged V8 include: Vortech watercooled intercooler, Turbonetics intake pressure plenum, Turbonetics wastegate, MSD ignition with a boost retard dial in cockpit, custom turbo headers, coldair intake and for cooler denser air for the turbocharger. The engine breathes through the original quad exhausts. Backing this engine is a threespeed automatic transmission with a Hurst shifter. This example also has frontwheel disc brakes and the original coilover rear end with inboard disc brakes.
The car rolls on Dunlop Sport 5000 radials in front, size 225/60ZR15, and Fuzion radials in back, size 225/60R15. All the tires are wrapped factory wire wheels with knockoff hubs. The tires are in good order while the wheels are in good, original order.
Inside, there are black seats with Simpson, fourpoint harnesses. The bucket seats and carpeting are in good, original order. Behind the seats is a roll bar. The original, threespoke steering wheel, instrument panel with Auto Meter gauges and inner door panels are all in good, original order, too but the horn is inoperable. Car comes with a tool roll, screw and scissor jack. Completing the cockpit is a Pioneer AM/FM stereo with CD player.
The newly used 105inch wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. The Series III is easily identifiable by the large crossslatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tires, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12.
Upon its release in March 1961, Enzo Ferrari called the EType the most beautiful car ever made. In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the it at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. In March 2008, the Jaguar EType ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the Worlds 100 most beautiful cars of all time.
