Jaguar E-TYPE V12 Coupe

Jaguar E-TYPE V12 Coupe

Our UK right hand drive series III V12 Coupe is a very very rare car presenting as it does with Borg Warner automatic super smooth V12 and in largely un restored condition

The body remains very solid and has no rust. We have cleaned the underside of the car and re applied the Schultz rustproof material to preserve the underside of the vehicle.

The trim looks very original and patinated but correct with no tears or undue ageing to the seats or trim. This is an 80k miles car and the trim supports that fact.  The roomy V12 coupe cabin is a pleasant place to sit and the full suite of gauges operate correctly adding to the overall vista when gazing through the windscreen down the vast V12 bonnet. It’s a cool car

Mechanically the V12 is very smooth having been overhauled by Eagle back in the 2005/6. The gearbox and engine are without fault. The car leaps into action when the throttle is pressed and the torque of the epic V12 is evident with more power than any ‘normal’ person could ever use. The Borg Warner automatic responds accordingly and tames the violent rush of horsepower in a very controlled and manageable way. I wasn’t sure I’d like the V12 and automatic. BUT in this day and age of automatics I really do like this combination. If you have ‘dicky’ knees or a hip that’s not your own but want to keep playing with classic cars the V12 E Type could be the car for you. Equally if you want to go on long grand touring trips the E Type will effortlessly cover huge mileages in comfort. The power steering also compliments the car as do the brakes which pull the car up with ease and confidence.

This V12 E Type is a rare cat. A bodily un restored car, solid but not perfect, patinated but not scruffy it is a very nice car to be used, enjoyed and improved if you wish. Personally, I’d just drive it and enjoy
