The Jaguar E-Type, or the Jaguar XK-E for the North American market, is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the marquee as an icon of 1960s motoring. At a time when most cars had drum brakes, live rear axles, and mediocre performance, the E-Type sprang on the scene with 150 mph and a sub-7 second 0–60 time, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, independent front and rear suspension, and unrivaled looks. The E-Type was based on Jaguar's D-Type racing car which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years (1955–1957) and, as such, it employed the racing design of a body tub attached to a tubular framework, with the engine bolted directly to the framework. On its release Enzo Ferrari called it "the most beautiful car ever made". In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the world's "100 most beautiful cars" of all time.
This particular 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 2+2 is fresh out of long-term climate controlled storage! Registration tabs place the car last on the road in 2004. Engine/Transmission runs and drives but will need complete maintenance done due to its long-term storage. Mileage shows 42,741 which we believe to be correct. While some may chose to give it a re-spray, some may chose to leave the originality intact. The hood/body does have some paint cracking/chipping but could be presentable with a judicial touch-up and buffing. Feel free to email/call us with any questions you may have. (See Below)
