Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 Roadster
First registered in March 1972 (K reg) this delightful and genuine UK supplied Right-Hand-Drive E-Type Series III V12 Manual Roadster is finished in Primrose Yellow with Black Leather Interior; it presents in outstanding condition. The most recent keeper since 1985 is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic collector with a garage of eight high quality motor vehicles. Previously, (since 1979 we believe the E-Type had been owned by the last keepers father) the condition of the car is certainly commensurate with such a low mileage and ownership. The E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with the newly developed and now legendary, 5.3 Litre V12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. The V12 was fed by four side draft Zenith carburettors producing a claimed 272bhp and a 0-60 mph acceleration of less than seven seconds. The Series III's were purpose built for devouring long distances and certainly looked the part as well. The paintwork was refreshed in 2015 and more recent history shows some maintenance to the fuel and steering systems in 2017 and more recently a substantial re-commissioning service with, at the same time, new brakes and a reconditioned steering rack. This is a wonderful example of the classically dynamic design and it still is a head turner today.
