Jaguar E-type V12

The Jaguar E-type Series III Roadster stormed onto the new car scene in 1971, once again an incredibly fast, open E-type was available. The new Series III featured an all new 5343cc V12 engine, power steering and vented disc brakes making this E-type a real drivers car once again.

The Series III Roadster now had large road wheels and tyres which filled the wheel arches, a new large front intake now dominated the cars front end appearance. The Series III Roadster now came in the same long wheel base for as the 2+2 Coupe, necessary to accommodate the new power-plant.

E-type Series III production lasted until 1973 when it finally ended to make way for the new XJS. The last 50 Roadsters were finished in a solid Black colour (apart from one special car) and carried a commemorative brass plaque on the facia panel.
