By 1971, Jaguar's jaw-dropping E-Type had been in production for a decade. Despite continual improvements, new emissions legislation in the all-important American market threatened to strangle the big cat's performance. Jaguar responded by giving its revered sportscar fresh claws in the shape of a 5343cc V12 developed from the stillborn XJ13 Le Mans project. The new engine was both effortlessly powerful and eerily refined. With some 272bhp and 304 lb ft of torque on tap, the Series III version once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space which, together with wider tracks front and rear, new anti-dive front suspension and fatter tyres, gave improved road holding. Imbued with a more muscular stance thanks to its flared wheelarches, re-profiled wings and larger grille, it also benefited from vented disc brakes and a restyled interior.
‘EVN 714L’ is a lefthand drive, matching numbers V12 Coupe that was despatched new to British Leyland New York on January 30, 1973. Since repatriation in 2018 it has undergone an extensive two-year restoration, during which as many original parts as possible were reused, the engine overhauled with fresh piston rings and bearings, a new clutch installed, and the body resprayed in its original eye-catching colour of Turquoise. The vendor now classes the bodywork, paintwork, engine and desirable four-speed manual gearbox as all being in ‘excellent’ order, and the original Black hide interior trim as still ‘very good’. This notably smart E-Type is currently displaying a mere 42,584 miles from new, and is now offered complete with parts invoices, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, driver’s handbook, tool kit, period radio and clip-on door mirrors, plus an MOT valid until April 19 next year.
