1963 Jaguar E-Type S1 3.8 Roadster | 1.2M HKD (FIRM)

We are delighted to introduce this beautiful and well maintained Series 1 E-Type for sale. Classically finished in Red with Black leather interior and classic wire wheels. This car has been carefully looked after by the current owner for more than a decade. This E-type Roadster needs nothing at all and is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner.

Jaguar’s E-Type was the sexiest car of the 1960s. It followed a proven Jaguar formula: sensational looks and superb performance at an impossibly low price. The XK 120 in 1949 was among the first Jaguars to follow this idea, and by 1961, it was time to bring it back with an all-new car. In place of the voluptuous curves of the XK-series of Jaguar was the sleek E-Type’s, a design that Enzo Ferrari called "the most beautiful car ever built".

The E-Type used a monocoque construction: the front of the chassis featuring a space frame with steel tubes supporting the engine, the front suspension and the hinged hood, which lifted to provide virtually unlimited access to the 3.8 L twin-cam inline six-cylinder engine which can propel the car to a top speed of 150 mph. It also offered four-wheel independent suspension and disc brakes at each corner for excellent road holding. It is no wonder that the E-Type became a motoring icon.

This E-Type was originally a 1963 UK delivered RHD example. Finished in Red over a Black interior and a Black hood. Bought by the current Hong Kong owner in 2010, import and registered in 2011, the car was immediately subjected to a one year full engine-out rebuilt. With new crankshaft, camshaft, pistons, con-rods, timing chains, all new valves and new clutch. The car has been lovingly cared for ever since and periodically restored as needed throughout the 12 year ownership. This stunning E-Type still retaining its original engine, this is an excellent example of the Series 1 3.8-litre Roadster, considered by many as one of the most desirable variants of the model. This E-Type will make a superb choice for either shows or touring and is likely to leave a lasting impression wherever it goes, just as it did when new over 50 years ago.

The car is ready to enter a new stable. Available for viewing by appointment for serious interest only.
