OUR VER­DICT

Classic Sports Car - - Buyer’s Guide -

A good V12 Jaguar E-type is a re­mark­ably so­phis­ti­cated and us­able ’70s per­for­mance car – and it’s not ex­pen­sive to keep it that way. Road­sters are not ex­ces­sively costly com­pared to con­tem­po­raries with sim­i­lar per­for­mance, while the 2+2 is still a bar­gain, at a lit­tle over half the price of road­sters. Just be­ware of ne­glected, tarted-up cars – try plenty and buy with your head, not your heart.

FOR The ef­fort­less V12, plus more space and softer sus­pen­sion made the S3 a us­able all-rounder. Ex­cep­tion­ally well served by spe­cial­ists and clubs

AGAINST High fuel con­sump­tion is the penalty, es­pe­cially if you use the per­for­mance. Ne­glected cars can cost a lot to put right
