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.
