The 2+2 Fixed Head Coupe of the immortal E-Type (known as the XKE in America, where most examples were sold) was introduced in 1966. Nine inches longer and featuring a more vertical windscreen, it was equipped with a pair of small rear seats and a notably airy feel courtesy of its stretched wheelbase and raised roofline. It benefited from the same fully independent suspension, rack and pinion steering and disc brakes as its two-seater brethren. Powered by a 4,235cc DOHC straight six engine developing a quoted 265bhp and 283 lb ft of torque, it was the first E-type model to list automatic transmission as an option. Only in production for some three years, a mere 5,600 are thought to have been built, just 1983 of which were examples of the Series 1.5 version.

Built in November 1966 and first registered in March 1967, this Jaguar E-Type S1 4.2 2+2 Coupe was originally sold by KDM Cherrington via Henlys London to its first owner, Mr. J B Lewis. Originally adorned in Cotswold Blue with a Grey interior, this iconic vehicle has been meticulously restored to its former glory. The exterior has been expertly refinished in Sage Green, while the interior boasts a rich dark Wine-Red leather upholstery, exuding an air of sophistication. Under the bonnet, this Jaguar E-Type has undergone a comprehensive rebuild of its engine, gearbox, and differential, ensuring optimal performance and reliability. Notable enhancements include the addition of electronic ignition and a modern lightweight alternator, enhancing the car's functionality while maintaining its classic appeal. To improve the overall driving experience, several upgrades have been implemented. The cooling system has been upgraded with a high-flow aluminium radiator and electric fans, providing efficient temperature regulation. A stainless-steel exhaust system, including manifolds, has been fitted to enhance both performance and sound quality. Attention to detail extends to the suspension, which has been rebuilt and rebushed to deliver a smooth and controlled ride. The installation of larger brake calipers enhances braking performance, promoting a sense of confidence and safety on the road. For added security, a modern-day immobilizer has been installed discreetly. This exceptional Jaguar E-Type has been stored in a climate-controlled facility since its restoration was completed, ensuring its pristine condition. With its captivating blend of classic aesthetics and mechanical refinements, this 1966 Jaguar E-Type S1 4.2 2+2 stands as a testament to automotive excellence, inviting collectors and enthusiasts alike to appreciate its timeless allure.
