THE SERIES III E-TYPE

One consequence of the E-Type's long process of development had been a gradual increase in weight, but a good measure of the concomitant loss of performance was restored in 1971 with the arrival of the Series III V12. Weighing only 80lb more than the cast-iron-block 4.2-liter XK six, the new all-alloy, 5.3-liter, overhead-camshaft V12 produced 272bhp, an output good enough for a top speed in excess of 140mph. Further good news was that the 0-100mph time of around 16 seconds made the V12 the fastest-accelerating E-Type ever.

Other mechanical changes beneath the Series III's more aggressive looking exterior included ventilated front disc brakes, anti-dive front suspension, Lucas transistorized ignition and Adwest power-assisted steering, while automatic transmission was one of the more popular options on what was now more of a luxury Grand Tourer than out-and-out sports car. Flared wheel arches, a deeper radiator air intake complete with grille, and a four-pipe exhaust system distinguished the Series III from its six-cylinder forbears, plus, of course, that all-important 'V12' boot badge. The interior though, remained traditional Jaguar, and the Series III E-Type continued the Jaguar tradition of offering a level of performance and luxury unrivalled at the price.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautifully preserved Series III V12 E-Type 2+2 was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar factory in April of 1972. The powerful Coupe would form part of the prominent Swiss-based collection of Mr. Claude Imhoof for decades, before being acquired by the consignor in 2017. Today the Jaguar remains in largely original condition, retaining much of its original Biscuit leather interior, brightwork, and possibly parts of the Fawn exterior color as well. The powerful 5.3-Liter V-12 engine pulls the sporting 2+2 Coupe forwards through the optional 3-speed automatic transmission, ideal for effortless touring. This Jaguar's charming patina and originality deserves a close look and serious consideration.
