This bespoke Jaguar E-type started life as a California car in 1974 before being totally transformed by Sovereign Motors of Santa Rosa, California in the early 1990s with a special 48-valve, quad-cam engine, a new Borg-Warner T5 gearbox, twin plate clutch, stronger rear suspension and heavy duty brakes. Stroked to 6.7 litres, V12 had two four-valve heads from late model AJ6 engines a custom steel crank, plus Electramotive fuel injection and was dyno tested at a mighty 640 bhp. The body also came in for a little treatment, with the rear wheelarches re-profiled to fit bigger rubber plus a seamless bonnet. In this form, the unique car was extensively featured in Jaguar World’s April 1993 edition.
Three years later, the Jaguar came to Australia and was professionally converted to right-hand drive by specialists in Melbourne. In March 2002 the current owner took over and has spent the last seven years further enhancing the already impressive E-Type, sparing no expense to bring the car to the present condition.
Virtually every part was rebuilt; the engine with new pistons, rebuilt heads and new timing case, Motec M800 injection replacing the old Electramotive system, a new radiator, a custom exhaust fabricated, the steering overhauled, the suspension rebuilt, the front brakes replaced with AP racing 4-spot calipers and the body completely restored with new paint. The interior has been totally re-trimmed, with Ferrari seats, new carpets, trim, restored instruments and a rare Nardi wheel the finishing touch. Having travelled less than 1,000 miles since completion, the Jaguar comes with extensive documentation including a photo album showing the seven year rebuild.
