Great Cars 8: Jaguar Lightweight E-type – The autobiography of 49 FXN £60
When a sports car is known by its registration number, you can be sure it has been regularly raced, seen and admired. That is certainly the case with 49 FXN.
One of just of two of the Lightweight E-types to receive aerodynamic bodywork, it had originally been bought and raced in 1963 by Peter Lumsden and Peter Sargent. In recent years, 49 FXN has become a regular attraction at the Goodwood Revival and Le Mans Classic and it looks set to continue to delight us for many years.
