Classic Sports Car - - The Marketplace -

Kent-based Jaguar spe­cial­ist E-type UK re­cently com­pleted the restora­tion of what it be­lieves to be the ul­ti­mate Se­ries 3 road­ster. Com­mis­sioned by an over­seas client, the 1974 model has had a 3000-hour re­build and in­cor­po­rates a plethora of be­spoke up­grades aimed at im­prov­ing its per­for­mance and us­abil­ity. Key among th­ese is a fuel-in­jected 284bhp 6.1-litre V12 mated to a five-speed man­ual gear­box, plus up­rated ad­justable sus­pen­sion, four-pot AP Rac­ing brakes and mod­i­fied steer­ing of­fer­ing im­proved feel, as well as one-off 16in 62-spoke wire wheels. The cock­pit is also be­spoke, and fea­tures a pi­ano-black fas­cia, air-con­di­tion­ing, cus­tom-made heated leather seats, a Blue­tooth sur­round-sound au­dio sys­tem and sub­tle LED footwell il­lu­mi­na­tion. The ex­ter­nal light­ing is also by LEDS, while the hood is fully lined and in­su­lated. It has al­ready been de­liv­ered to its lucky owner, but E-type UK is ac­cept­ing com­mis­sions for sim­i­lar projects. See www.etypeuk.com
