The Jaguar E-Type wowed the world upon its launch in 1961. Here was a sportscar that offered performance to beat Ferrari and Aston Martin at just half the price, wrapped up in a beautiful muscular body that was unlike any other contemporary sportscar. This combination of style, speed and value endeared it to the world’s elite and the E-Type was one of the coolest cars to be seen in throughout the 60s and 70s. The range expanded with a 2+2 derivative joining the Coupe and Roadster and evolved through steady stages until the final Series 3 V12s bowed out in 1975. Weighing just a few pounds more than the smaller 4.2L engine it replaced, the alloy-blocked 5.3L V12 produced 272 BHP with vastly improved torque at 349 lb/ft. Even though the E-Type has now celebrated its 60th birthday it is still one of the most beautiful cars ever produced.

Despatched to Jaguar Cars, New York, NY in 1973, this is a Jaguar E Type 2+2 Series 3; a V12 Coupe iteration of the marque with an automatic gearbox. It is left-hand drive, having been repatriated to the UK and originally wore a Sable exterior paint finish. Described as an extremely solid and complete car that starts, runs and drives. Back in the United States, the car had just 1 former owner, a Dr Lawrence Cohen and c.14,800 miles displaying on the odometer. A matching numbers example of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, retaining engine number '7S 12595 LA', it is UK registered and still retains its original Cinnamon leather interior. 'WWE 832L' is offered with its bookpack, containing the original handbook and service passport with stamps and the V5C. In addition, and those documents are accompanied by the car's Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
