One of last Jaguar E-Type models ever made is up for sale, but you’ll need deep pockets to drive it away | The Sun

CLASSIC car nuts will be revved up after discovering that one of the last ever Jaguar E-Type’s ever made is now up for sale.

The classic drop-top Jag rolled off the Coventry production line in 1974, as one of 50 special edition black Roadsters.

As a right-hand drive car, with a manual gearbox, this particular E-Type will be particularly sought after.

With five previous owners, the precious Jag has a rich history – originally based in Edinburgh, before changing hands between two different London-based keepers, and then onto a collector in Hong Kong and Hawaii from 1994 to 2019.

The car had a full restoration – starting in 2015 and taking three years to complete.

Bidders will be salivating at the gorgeous combination of British Racing Green paintwork and tan leather upholstery in the cabin.

Silverstone Auctions, who are handling the sale, said: “Our vendor bought the car from an international auction house in 2019, importing it from Austria and registering it here in the UK. 

“He has enjoyed only a few hundred miles in it, it now indicating just 25,884 miles (atoc), spending approximately £5,000 on its maintenance/upkeep in that time. 

“It is accompanied by two full files of paperwork, a lot of invoices showing the work done, the vast majority done by Jaguar and/or Jaguar specialists.

“Needless to say, this is an historically significant Jaguar that would stand proud in any collection.”
