Lot 121: Jaguar E-Type S1 4.2 Fixedhead Coupe 2+2

Carfest North Pride & Joy Auction, Silverstone Auctions (4 August 2013)

The Jaguar E-Type was introduced in 1961 to a totally stunned world at the Geneva motor show as initially a Coupé and then a Roadster. Within a few months Graham Hill won in one at Oulton Park - and the rest is history. Now recognised as one of the most important and collectable cars from the 1960's era, the Jaguar E-Type is truly the stuff of legend. This Series 1 E-Type is presented in Carmen Red with contrasting black leather interior. Supplied with a large history portfolio, wire wheels, seat belts and stunning looks, this delightful car is a very low mileage and ownership example. It benefits from upgraded Zeus brakes, stainless steel exhaust, and electronic ignition. The owner has driven her regularly since acquiring the car from the last owner, who is extremely well known and highly regarded in Jaguar circles. The car performs correctly with crisp gear changes, correct cooling and charging with continuous good oil pressure and precise braking too. The vehicle has a Full V5C European log book, long mot test and historic road tax.
