1971 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Auto

For every three E-Type's built, two were exported, mainly to the U.S. As American emission regulations were increasingly strangling the performance of the E-Type, the Series III emerged in 1971 with a 5.3 litre V12, based on the layout of the longer 2+2 fixed head. Production ceased in 1974, ending a distinguished life and remarkable export success story. The new V12 used an alloy cylinder block and this kept the weight down, meaning the suspension and body of the cars did not have to modified much and the engine could be sited reasonably well forward without upsetting the cars balance. The most noticeable features of the V12 model are the flared wheel aches and new style grill.

This tax exempt U.K car has come to us in excellent condition for such an original car. The interior has aged delightfully and the mileage of 75,000 is likely to be genuine with such a good original upholstery and MOT certifactes backing it up from 1980 when the mileage was 55,000. The car is excellent to drive and the engine sounds and performs perfectly. The car has been painted very well many years ago and chrome work is bright. The engine bay is very clean and the general presentation of the vehicle is beautiful. Overall, this is a really good V12 that has been preoperly maintained and cared for.

Great driver and ready to go.
