Desirable first-year, flat-floor E-Type Roadster
Retains its original engine and finished in original colours
Recent re-commissioning by Lanzante
Constructed in December of 1961, this particular E-Type is a 'flat-floor' example from the model's very first year of production. Originally finished in Opalescent Gunmetal over a red leather interior, the same colour combination it sports today, the car was delivered new to Max Hoffman's fabled Jaguar Dealership in New York City. The car retains both its original engine and gearbox.
Upon being imported to the UK in the late 1980s, it was converted to right-hand drive and fully restored in 1991 to exacting standards. The car has seen very light use since restoration and has only travelled some 800 miles since 2011; it is no surprise that this E-Type is presented in excellent condition throughout.
Its previous owner maintained the car to exacting standards with maintenance work carried out by marque specialists GTC Engineering, BPA Engineering and Paul Lanzante Ltd. Recently the car was fully re-commissioned by Paul Lanzante Ltd within the last year. Given only occasional use in the preceding five years, nothing was overlooked in making sure the E-Type was ready for anything it had in store, and invoices for the work amount to over £30,000.
With recent re-commissioning by one of Britain's most celebrated motorsport outfits, the perfect colour combination and matching-numbers engine and drivetrain, this E-Type checks all the right boxes for someone looking to enjoy perhaps the most iconic British car ever built on the open road.
