1970 Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Lightweight Coupe Chassis no. P1R43671BW 4,580cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Triple Weber 45 DCOE Carburetors 300bhp at 5,500rpm 5-Speed Manual Gearbox 4-Wheel Independent Suspension 4-Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes *Exacting LHD aluminium Recreation of the Lindner-Nöcker Low-Drag Lightweight *Professionally Built by the Jaguar Marque Experts at Vicarage *Tested and Featured by Top Gear Magazine and Car and Driver *Equipped to Perform and Capable of Fast Road Work *Amazing Presence, Specification and Performance THE MOTORCAR OFFERED While originally intended as a fast road car without racing pretensions, Jaguar's E-Type was almost immediately raced to great effect. Rapid development to keep the E-Type competitive against the likes of Ferrari's vaunted GTO led to a special 12-car batch of "Lightweight" competition versions built by Jaguar's Experimental Department. Among them was 4868 WK, supplied new to Peter Lindner, Jaguar's German importer and highly successful racer. Lindner's chosen driver for the car was Peter Nöcker, who shared driving duties with Lindner on long-distance events. Proving the Lightweight E-Type's effectiveness, Lindner led the field including the works Ferraris of Scarfiotti and Surtees at the 1963 Nürburgring 1000 kms for the first lap of the old 14-kilometer Nordschleife. The Lindner-Nöcker Lightweight was further modified for 1964 into the only Jaguar factory-built Low-Drag Lightweight E-Type. Brutally beautiful and reminiscent of military aircraft with many riveted body panels, the Lindner-Nöcker car's body modifications were the product of original E-Type designer Malcolm Sayer, the brilliant aerodynamicist behind Jaguar's dominant earlier racecar designs. During 1964, the Lindner-Nöcker E-Type returned to the Nürburgring and then received an upgrade to 344 HP for Le Mans, followed a few weeks later by Lindner's fatal crash with it at Monthlèry. The mangled wreck of 4868 WK remained there for years and subsequently fell out of sight, with many believing the car was lost; however, it resurfaced and received an epic restoration completed in 2011. While the racing career of the Lindner-Nöcker Low-Drag Lightweight E-Type was relatively brief, its radical, all-out design and "one of one" status kept it in the collective memory of Jaguar's faithful. Among them was Tony Parkinson, a former director of Vicarage, the renowned Jaguar restoration and upgrading specialist firm, who had relocated to Florida. During the 1990s, Parkinson converted an original 1970 E-Type 2+2 into this incredibly detailed recreation of the original Lindner-Nöcker Low Drag Lightweight E-Type, faithfully crafted entirely of aluminum, including the monocoque tub, in keeping with the original car. Beautiful details included the flip-up fuel-filler cap, bent-wire trunk latch, faired driving lights, and intricate sheet metal ducts channeling cooling air to the radiator, carburetors and front brakes. As with the original, body panels are secured by strings of rivets draped across the bodywork in purposefully curving lines. A carefully considered blend of period and modern mechanical components endows the Low Drag Lightweight E-Type with performance matching its aggressive persona. Among them, the Jaguar XK six-cylinder engine, taken from the donor E-type that also provided most mechanical components, was bored to 4,580cc and equipped with a freer-flowing cylinder head, oversize valves, triple Weber carburetors, exhaust headers, high-strength internals and Electromotive HPV-1 ignition. Producing a stated 300 horsepower, the Jaguar's high-strength driveline includes an American JT5 five-speed transmission and Quaife limited-slip differential. Chassis upgrades include vented front brake rotors, four-piston AP calipers, Koni adjustable shock absorbers, stiffer front torsion bars, softer rear springs and lengthened steering arms, with replica Dunlop cast-aluminum peg-drive wheels and fat tires for rolling stock.
