About this car
The Jaguar E-type series 1 was introduced in March 1961, initially for export only. The domestic market launch came four months later. In 1963 Jaguar E-type floors were changed to provide more legroom and the double hood latches moved inside the car. The 3,8 liter engine was increased to 4,2 liters in October 1964. Also in 1963, Jaguar decided to turn the E-type into a competitive race car and manufactured 12 Lightweight E-types.
