Jaguar World magazine, August 2004, pg 38. 860010 (6162 RW) now with JD Classics for restoration. Retained by factory as a press car. Appears to have been stored since mid-1970s. Good condition, usual sill & floor areas have rusted, spare wheel tray, engine frames, other vulnerable areas in excellent order. Fllors and section behind the seats have been carefullly cut out. One nice side photo in the artlcle.

This car can be seen driving though snow in Chris Harveys "E-type End of an Era" page 31, and also this press car was featured in a road and track test by German Auto, Motor & Sport in 1962. They stated that 6162 RW was fitted with a 1:3.07 rear axle and Dunlop RS5 tyres (if I remember correctly it was stated that these were racing tyres with wider rims at rear) and they recorded a 256km/h measured over one kilometer and averaged from the best runs in both directions, that's 159 mph! They also fealt sorry for the E-type, as it could have done better in their track test against the Ferrari 250 GT they also had tested, had it had a close ratio gear box as they mention now that they could mainly only use two gears on this track! Whoever has this car, it would be nice to see pictures and get some real information about it. Cheers, Pekka T.

This famtastic E Type is finished now. Saw it in December at JDC and I as blown away. What a beauty. What a work they have done to this vehicle. Every screw appers to be right, every detail as far as I understand is in place. Had a lengthy talk to one of the worksmen, he said he has not yet seen a similar level of work on any E Type. And I guess at JDC they should have seen some good examples. It would be absolutly fantastic to see this car out on the roads. But I bet it will end up in some high end collection. AS most of the time. Sad, but we still have hope.

This car won best fo show at UNIQUES SPECIAL ONES end of September. Perfect restoration and the perfect early E Type. What a car! And what a history this car has as the third one of the factory test cars!
Hope to see it again, the owner seems to be a well known collector and frequently shoing his cars on shows.
Well done No 10!
