History of the JaguarE-Type Series III:
One consequence of the E-Type's long process of development had been a gradual increase in weight, but a good measure of the concomitant loss of performance was restored in 1971 with the arrival of the Series III V12. Weighing only 80lb more than the cast-iron-block 4.2-litre XK six, the new all-alloy, 5.3-litre, overhead-camshaft V12 produced 272bhp, an output good enough for a top speed in excess of 140mph. Further good news was that the 0-100mph time of around 16 seconds made the V12 the fastest-accelerating E-Type ever.
Other mechanical changes beneath the Series III's more aggressive looking exterior included ventilated front disc brakes, anti-dive front suspension, Lucas transistorised ignition and Adwest power-assisted steering, while automatic transmission was one of the more popular options on what was now more of a luxury Grand Tourer than out-and-out sports car. Flared wheelarches, a deeper radiator air intake complete with grille, and a four-pipe exhaust system distinguished the Series III from its six-cylinder forbears, plus, of course, that all-important 'V12' boot badge. The interior though, remained traditional Jaguar. Built in two-seat roadster and '2+2' coupé versions, both of which used the long-wheelbase floor pan introduced on the Series II '2+2', the Series III E-Type continued the Jaguar tradition of offering a level of performance and luxury unrivalled at the price.
This JaguarE-Type is a Series III convertible(Numbers-Matching) that was produced on May,1974 and It is finished in dark blue with a black convertible top over tan leather and is powered by a numbers-matching 5.3-liter V12 mated to 3-Speed Automatic Transmission and Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.This car was never involved in any major accident or serious damage.This last-of-the line Jaguar E-Type is everything the enthusiast could wish for; the engine bay in itself is spectacular and the entire car is absolutely outstanding, faultless in every respect. With its limited ownership, un-restored condition and low mileage, this must be one of the best V12 E-Types to come to the market in recent times.We can help with transport.
