Gooding Amelia 2015 – 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Lightweight Replica

Among the hundreds of fantastic cars up for sale at the 2015 Gooding & Company auction in Amelia Island this year, Jaguar E-Types were proudly represented. Most sold for pricing in the range of $150,000 to $300,000. As such, this Series I Lightweight’s estimated price of $400,000-plus was always an ambitious total, with a possibility that it would not meet its reserve price. Without crossing that threshold, the car would be a no-sale and any bids below that rate would be canceled. Finally, this Jag has one trait that collectors tend to avoid at almost all costs: replica. Despite being …

2014 JAGUAR Lightweight E-Type Full Details Revealed: 340HP, Removable Alloy Hardtop, Standard Roll Cage

Did you know that Jaguar loves the E-type in their back catalog from more than 50 years ago? Don’t believe it? Yes, they sure do! It is true, we swear! Not a year goes by without romantic E-type navel-gazing from this immensely unprofitable car brand. More of the same in this project. Great nose and shrouded front lighting, but the rump is much frumpier than the smooth fastback profile of the Eagle Low Drag GT. On the plus side for the official Jaguar Special Operations model: the amazing race-car E-Type setup paired with a removable hardtop. Win win! 2014 JAGUAR …

1963 JAGUAR E-Type Series 1 Classes Up Kiawah Island Cars and Coffee

Classes up? Kiawah is already pretty darn fancy, including this faux village of a town square. The mini town is dubbed Fresh Fields, by the way, in charming faux-thenti-city. But the presence of any genuine Jaguar E-Type Series I instantly adds charm to any venue. Even when painted a color I dubbed “Swedish Racing Purple.” No, it does not make sense. Yes, this English charmer is painted what is claimed to be a factory color. But still, this deep lilac metallic pearl (?) is pretty far from the dark greens that most E-Types wore out the factory doors… 1963 JAGUAR …

Fatcat Chic – Design Comparison ~1965 JAGUAR Mark 10 vs. 2014 XJL 3.0 AWD

The Jaguar Mark 10, or Mark X in Roman numerals, was such an odd sight that I honestly had no idea what it was until just researching it now. Not only have I not seen one, I have never even read about one. In photos, it might be easy to mistake the Mark 10 car for a 1950s Jaguar saloon car. But not in real life. This Jag is quite enormous – with the upright and tall bodywork of Rolls-Royce and Bentley fame. This (estimated) 1965 car is huge and outrageous in person. It looks like a meld of the …
