Jaguar Classic E-type in iconic UK colors

Jaguar Classic presenta una straordinaria E-type per il Queen's Jubilee thumbnail

On the occasion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant, Jaguar Classic created and exhibited a customized E-type by the experts of Classic Works.

This E-type exclusive made its debut alongside fifteen iconic Jaguar models presented at the Jubilee Pageant. These include a selection of historically important E-types, a fully electric I-PACE eTROPHY racing car and seven convertibles.

The car was commissioned from a customer who had specific needs; he wanted a roadster built in the year he was born and finished to bespoke specifications. The Jaguar Classic team got to work and spotted a Series 1 E-type built just two days after the buyer’s birth.

Over the next year the car was completely rebuilt, starting with the bodywork. As the request was a Union Jack inspired metallic blueafter numerous tests the team developed the perfect shade.

The bespoke interior features stunning leather upholstery in a shade of red inspired by the iconic British pillar boxes (the famous post office columns). They are hand finished using traditional methods in Jaguar Classic Works in-house workshop.

After completing the assembly of the bodywork and paint, the engineering team went to work reconditioning the mechanics, which included a number of updates.

Furthermore, improved suspension and wheels are installed with wider tires for better driving dynamics. The sports exhaust adds more resonance.
