    Jaguar E-Type - Wikipedia

    Up until the mids, Jaguar was a well-respected builder of sporting cars, most notably the highly successful XK series and the pre-war SS Jaguars. But, in everything changed. Over the space of about five years, the automaker transformed from a small British boutique to one of the most fearsome builders of serious race cars on the planet. Their problem was that their passenger cars were a poor reflection of their on-track prowess. How did one reconcile the stunningly aerodynamic C- and D-Types with the old-world charm and styling of an XK?

    The drivetrain of the E-Type picked up where the XK left off, offering the triple-carbureted, horsepower, 3. All new, however, was a fully independent suspension that proved so successful that Jaguar would use variants on the same architecture underneath every car they made through to the late s. Perhaps most important, from a performance standpoint, was its unitized body construction, which helped to drop curb weight by more than pounds.

    As a result, with the same engine and transmission as the XKS, 0—60 times dropped by a full second to 6. And clothing it all, of course, was the immortal new body, in roadster and coupe form. Instead, Sayer sculpted it with a combination of instinct and mathematical formulae, both of which proved to be absolutely correct. Not only was the car a popular hit from the moment it appeared, but later aerodynamic studies and race track wins confirmed that it was right in every regard.

    So popular was it that the small Jaguar factory was behind on orders for the next four years, meaning there was no compelling reason at all to make major changes to the car until Very few outside-bonnet-latch cars were ever produced. This car, number in production order, also sports flat floors and welded louvers, which were soon changed to more cost-efficient pressed metal.

    In recent years, the supply of highly original early E-Types for restoration has dwindled sharply, so the discovery of an original low-mileage example was notable. In their California shop, they performed a no-expense-spared rotisserie restoration of this gem.

    This perfect concours score is even more startling when one considers the restoration did not depend on reproduction parts but rather NOS and the refinishing of original mechanical parts and accessories. Complementing that is a fully reworked and leaded body that has been finished in the same Opalescent Dark Blue as indicated on the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.

    Its completely replated brightwork calls attention to the correct, early Series 1 outside-bonnet-latch roadster upper-door chrome finisher, and inside is all-new, complete, and correct light blue upholstery and a dark blue hood, as it had when it left the factory. The restoration process is completely documented on a comprehensive DVD, which accompanies the car. As the Blue Diamond has been shown in a JCNA Concours only one time since restoration, and before that largely unseen since the s, it is perfectly poised to embark on a long and fruitful second act, showing the world exactly what an early Series 1 should be.
