Description for Jaguar E-Type 1973

The 1973 model year marked the end of an era for Jaguar, as it was one of the final production year for the E-Type, wich ended in 197, one of Jaguars most celebrated post-war models. Throughout its transition from the Series I 3.8-liter inline-six to the Series III powered by a 5.3-liter V-12, the E-Type had remained an icon of British engineering and design. Over the E-Types 13 years of production, it had evolved into a comfortable grand tourer, and the V-12 cars were the pinnacle of that evolution. The addition of a V-12 engine over the earlier straight-six meant an increase in available power. Other mechanical changes included a new suspension and wider track.

Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the E-Type as an icon of the motoring world. The car's claimed 150 mph top speed, sub-seven-second 0 to 60 mph acceleration, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes..

Twelve-cylinder E-Types are praised by enthusiasts for the power and torque provided by their engines, and they are excellent long-distance drivers. This Series III E-Type 2+2 represents excellent value for the money, as it combines one of the 20th centurys best automotive designs with the history that only a V-12-powered European coupe can provide.

The striking look of the factory wire wheels set this XKE apart from the rest and the automatic transmission makes the car a joy to drive in the city, country or on the highway making it a female friendly and comfortable driver. This is a proper example and is a pleasure to drive and even show, if desired.

The E-Type was based on Jaguar's D-Type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years beginning 1955 and employed what was, for the early 1960s, a novel racing design principle: a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolted directly to the body tub. No ladder frame chassis, common at the time, was needed and the first cars weighed only 2,900 pounds.
