Although conceived and developed as an open sports car, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in 3.8-litre Coupé form, causing a sensation with its instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. In 1965 the 4.2-litre version arrived boasting a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on 1st gear alongside the bigger, torquier engine. Proposed changes in United States automobile legislation would eventually result in the revised Series 2 announced in October 1968, though modifications began to be phased in during 1967. Externally the Series 2 was readily identifiable by its larger sidelights, raised bumpers, deleted headlight covers, twin reversing lights, and square rear number plate, while the interior was revised with rocker-type dashboard switches, new seats, and a collapsible steering column. Beneath the skin, Ad-West power steering, Girling brake callipers, and an up-rated radiator were among the many Series 2 improvements.
An honest, enthusiast-owned Jaguar E-Type, 'XRK 20H' has been used regularly for drives to Le Mans over the last decade. It was previously owned by a JEC member, who had the car restored. While in the current ownership the E-Type has been looked after by Classic Performance Engineering, Bicester. Presented in good condition, and at a sensible guide price, the car comes with a nice history file and a V5C document.
