The ultimate Series 3 E-type roadster?
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.
