7,000 miles from new 1973 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES III V12 ROADSTER EU Registered Chassis No. ES3V/2UD/522349 Engine No. 7S10248 Red with beige leather interior Engine: V12, single overhead camshaft per bank, 5,343cc; Gearbox: 4 speed manual; Brakes: four wheel disc, servo assisted; Suspension: independent all round. Left hand drive. The new Jaguar E-Type was a sensation at its launch in 1961. With a retail price of just over £2,000 the E-Type was a very competitive package. Boasting 265bhp (from the 3.8 litre engine), independent suspension all round and disc brakes it was by comparison a sportscar bargain. The 4.2 litre engined model arrived in the autumn of 1964 and the ultimate design was the Series III in 1971. This had the new V12 engine producing 272bhp with a top speed in the region of 150mph. The car was now a more sophisticated package compared to the original models and firmly aimed at the GT section of the market. Fitted with electric windows, white-walled tyres and air-conditioning this US specification model was delivered new to a Mr. Michael A. Looney of Oak Park, Illinois. He sparingly used the car thus when the car was advertised in 1989 it had covered a mere 4,400 miles. Following a deal for $100,000 brokered by Jimmy Wanko of Miami the current owner then returned the car to Europe to join his collection. The odometer now reads just over 7,000 miles and, as one would expect, condition is exceptional throughout. In addition to this all of the original handbooks accompany the car. Benefitting from the desirable manual gearbox, this 'timewarp' E-Type is a rare opportunity to acquire an unmolested and much cherished example of one of the most admired sportscars of all time.
