Bob Jane's 1963 Jaguar E-type Lightweight goes to Auction...
« on: December 14, 2016, 01:07:00 PM »


With just 12 examples constructed in-period, the E-Type Lightweight is rarer than Jaguar’s C-type (53 built) and D-type (71 built), as well as Ferrari’s 250 GTO (39 built, including three 330 GTOs). E-type Lightweights don’t trade hands very often, but next month an Australian championship-winning example, said to display less than 4,000 miles on the odometer, will cross the auction stage as part of the Bonhams Scottsdale, Arizona sale...

Bloody e-types are really expensive.   I couldn't believe my eyes, they sell for over $200k stock average.

I'd rather buy a Fezza for that money, or a lambo.

especially since the Fezza of the period out ran in all the endurance races.

Did you notice, at that price, you will have buy 4 new tyres for a roadworthy?  Could have thrown on a set of new tyres!  :-\
