Vehicle Description

This breathtakingly beautiful E-Type coupé, a 1972 model which was imported from the US, presents itself in the classic colour combination of white paintwork and black leather interior. It has the long wheelbase and the 2+2 seater arrangement which all Series III E-Types have in common. The mighty and prestigious 12-cylinder engine produces 187 kW (254 hp) from 5.3 litres of displacement. The engine itself was almost a unique selling point in the 1970s, it offered a nearly unmatched performance – and it came bundled with the graceful elegance the E-Type became famous for.
This car presents itself, as far as the body is concerned, in a good condition for its age. The vehicle is devoid of any visible accident damage. Paintwork and chrome parts are well-kept. This Jaguar runs on beautiful spoke wheels, mostly in good condition. The black leather interior shows normal wear without cracks or splits of seats or dashboard. Air conditioning and a contemporary radio are on board.
The car is only conditionally drivable and the technical components (such as engine, exhaust system and electrics) need to be overhauled. With regards to the price development of these amazing British sports cars, the investment ought to prove worthwhile.


The essence of automotive beauty

No other than Enzo Ferrari called the E-Type the most beautiful car ever made, and even if beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, not too many people would have contradicted him since. The debut of the XK-E, called “E-Type”, in 1961 was nothing short of a sensation. Its unrivalled elegant styling was complemented by plenty of power, and all of that at a relatively moderate price.

Over the years, the successful model was modified in several ways: From the spring of 1966 there was a 2 + 2-seater version with an extended wheelbase. In 1967, the headlight covers fell victim to American safety regulations. On the engine side, there were six-cylinder engines with 3.8 and later 4.2 litres, and as of 1971, twelve-cylinder motors to choose from. Production of the compact two-seaters ceased in 1971, the so-called Series III was only offered as a 2+2-seater.

A classic of superlatives, that’s all there is to it.
