The Gentleman Racer – 1963 Jaguar E-Type

Like all good car guys, I spend a lot of time looking at cars for sale. Most of that time I’m browsing at cars well out of my price range, you never know, I might win the Euro Millions. During that time I came across this perfect example of a 1963 Jaguar E-Type which has been streamlined in aluminium by RS Panels to look like the Le Mans Low-Drag racer, and it looks great.

Under the bonnet lies a 340bhp, 3.8-litre straight six with a ‘wide-angle’ head and dry sump lubrication. It’s fully race prepared by Blakeney Motorsport with current FIA paper. It is also road legal and registered, so you wont have to get a trailer to transport it to races. All in all it’s a great way to get into the Goodwood races and have fun.
