In 2010 EOG319 K found its 5thowner, this time in Cwmbran, Wales where its resided until 2013 when it was purchased by the current owner here in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

The E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupé form (FHC or Fixed Head Coupé) and as a two-seater convertible roadster. A “2+2” four-seater version of the coupé, with a lengthened wheelbase, was released several years later. The E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 L twelve cylinder Jaguar V12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. The brand new V12 engine was originally developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was equipped with four Zenith carburettorsand was claimed to produce 272hp, more torque, and a 0-60 mph acceleration of less than 7 seconds, but this bhp figure was reduced later for production to 254bhp.
As with all our vehicles the car will go through a comprehensive pre-sales inspection by one of our classic Jaguar experienced technicians.
