Footnotes

  • Conceived and developed as an open sports car, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in Coupé form. The car caused a sensation - spontaneous applause breaking out at the unveiling - with its instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. The design owed much to that of the racing D-Type, a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine, which was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. Aerodynamically, the Coupé was superior to the Roadster and the better Grand Tourer, enjoying as it did a marginally higher top speed and the considerable convenience of a generously sized luggage platform accessed via the side-hinged rear door.
    Its engine aside, only in terms of its transmission did the E-Type represent no significant advance over the XK150, whose durable four-speed Moss gearbox it retained. The latter was replaced when the 4.2-litre engine was introduced on the Series 1 in October 1964, a more user-friendly all-synchromesh gearbox and superior Lockheed brake servo forming part of the improved specification together with the bigger, torquier engine. Apart from '4.2' badging the car's external appearance was unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements, chiefly to the electrical and cooling systems, and to the seating arrangements. Top speed remained unchanged at around 150mph, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved flexibility.
    This superb Series 1 4.2-litre Coupé was purchased by the current vendor in 2008 and rebuilt over an 18-month period, arriving at its present 'as new' condition in 2009. This refurbishment included a full engine overhaul and the car comes with a quantity of invoices detailing the work carried out. Handsomely finished in Old English White with red leather interior, 'UNO 999E' is offered with current MoT/tax and Swansea V5. A Borg Warner five-speed manual transmission is the only notified deviation from factory specification and we are advised that there is no spare wheel.
