Classic Insider Exclusive | Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster FOR SALE
Jaguar E-Type Series 3, the final incarnation of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, and as a result the most developed of them all, is a superb European cruiser, and this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.
The E-Type Series III had the privilege to christen the brand new V12 engine from Jaguar in 1971. This superb SOHC 5.3L engine was developed after a prototype designed for Le Mans 24H. It was fed through a 4 carbs arrangement giving 272BHP at first launch. It will produce up to 700HP in racing versions during its 25 years of production time and was always famed for its reliability. This all-alloy new engine was not heavier than the six inline 4.2L it was replacing but was offering a lot more flexibility and torque not to mention a hundred more horsepower. As such this wonderful engine was enabling the E type SIII to rejoin the pinnacle of the world top GT cars as its predecessor the first E 3.8L did in 1962. The E type Jaguar S III boasts top notch refinement due to its power steering and new manual gearbox perfectly complementing the qualities of the new V12 engine. The car still offers legendary comfort and roadholding but now with a much improved cockpit size due to the new and only long-wheelbase chassis.
The E-Type Series III Roadster we are offering today is in good condition having clearly been cherished and well maintained throughout its life in Hong Kong. This glorious roadster shows all original details and the car is finished in a beautiful original color combination of Red coachwork with black hide, a black soft top and matching tonneau cover. Furthermore, the car is equipped with desirable options such as a manual four-speed gearbox, air conditioning and period-correct chrome wire wheels. Most V12s are equipped with an automatic three-speed gearbox, so the manual gearbox is very rare and special in an E-type V12.
In South Africa you get 'bakkies' and then you get the #FordRangerRaptor . Class-leading across the board, the new Raptor is an absolute beast of an off-road vehicle. It also happens to be my favourite truck.
When @barloworldford approached me to produce a short, impactful and edgy social piece around their new four-wheeled weapon, I jumped at the opportunity.
Teaming up with professional racing driver, @j_goetsch888 , we rallied the off-road track at @degrendelwines until we had bagged all the required shots. If you're into the off-road, high octane and rad scenery, this ones a must watch.
