Jaguar Classic presented a one-of-a-kind Jaguar E-type at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant on 5 June 2022. The expert technicians at Classic Works had refined the bespoke renovation with a comprehensive list of enhancements as well as metallic blue paintwork inspired by the Union Jack.
Jaguar Classic’s one-off E-type was commissioned by a client who wanted a Roadster manufactured in the year he was born and finished to a bespoke specification. The team at Jaguar Classic found a Series 1 E-type that was built just two days after the customer’s date of birth. Over the following 12 months, the car underwent a complete rebuild, beginning with the bodywork. The new blue paint was exclusively mixed by the paint shop following numerous consultations and sample creations to craft the perfect hue over several months.
The bespoke interior is upholstered in leather in a shade of red inspired by iconic British pillar boxes and was hand finished using traditional methods at the in-house Jaguar Classic Works trim shop.
The original 4.2-litre straight-six engine was replaced by a 4.7-litre engine. It is optimized for road driving and is paired with Jaguar Classic’s specially developed five-speed gearbox, for a smoother, quieter and more refined driving experience. The car is fitted with modern suspension, wider wheels, tires, and uprated brakes. A sports exhaust and manifold ensure the E-type’s soundtrack suits its dynamic character.
21st-century connectivity is provided by the Classic Infotainment system that includes touchscreen controls, satellite navigation and Bluetooth with a period look. Powerful exterior LED lighting also brings illumination up to modern standards.
A series of bespoke details complete the vehicle, including a unique plate and dash plaque. In addition, this one-off blue E-type features a few elements inspired by the limited E-type 60 Collection.
