We are excited to offer on behalf of one of our clients this outstanding and all original 1973 Jaguar E-Type V12.
For many years, 2shores has been offering selected, finest grade examples of collectible automobiles. This E-Type is one of those examples!
The E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 L Jaguar V12 engine, updated brakes and standard power steering. An automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available options. The V12 was equipped with four Zenith carburettors, and as introduced produced a claimed 272 hp, more torque, and a 0–60 mph acceleration of less than seven seconds. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued, with the Series 3 available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. Fifty Series 3 E-Types were constructed as end of model commemorative cars. They featured black exteriors, cinnamon upholstery and commemorative plaques on the glove box (apart from a single green car that Jaguar painted for a long-standing customer). The final production E-Type OTS Roadster was built in June 1974. The new longer wheelbase offered significantly more room in all directions. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tires, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. The first published road test of the series 3 was in Jaguar Driver, the club magazine of the Jaguar Drivers' Club, the only owners club to be officially sanctioned by Sir William Lyons and Jaguar themselves. The road test of a car provided by Jaguar was published ahead of all the national and international magazines.
Our car on offer was delivered to its first customer in the US in May of 1973. The car has had only 3 owners in the United States and was sold to a German collector in 2006 where it remains today. The car is a wonderful, unrestored and original paint survivor, that is being used regularly in good weather. Fully sorted, mechanically and visually in excellent condition, this V12 E-Type Roadster is a very rare find. With only 71k original miles and an enthusiastic owner, this Jaguar is perfectly maintained and a dream to drive.
The car is finished in sable over cinnamon leather and is all numbers matching as confirmed by a Hertitage certificate. The elegant body of this dream car has no rust, no paint work and has never been repaired. A collectors dream ready to be enjoyed! And....it is a rare manual transmission V12!
