1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.7 Sport GT


The Jaguar E-Type is arguably one of the finest classic sportscars and equally a fabulous cross-continent tourer. This particular model has been carefully upgraded to combine both the best elements of the standard but equally superb road cars and the period racing Lightweight E-Types. The result is a sublime-looking and driving classic Jaguar built to the ultimate fast road GT specification with no expense spared

Using the foundations of a 1966 E-Type FHC, this Jaguar has been upgraded and now effortlessly provides luxurious and comfortable transportation for two occupants and their luggage. The reliable and race-proven engine is believed to produce just shy of 400bhp from its 4.7-litre capacity, delivering over 400 ft-lb of torque. The E-Type 4.7 Sport GT epitomises the true essence of a grand tourer, making it ideal for continental driving. Power is transmitted through a five-speed gearbox and a Powerloc limited-slip differential making for a revised but equally sporty driving experience.

The car's appeal extends beyond its power and performance. Equipped with ventilated disc brakes, six-pot front callipers, and four-pot rear callipers, the Sport GT offers impressive stopping power and a safer modernised drive without losing the car’s classic appeal.

Finished in stunning Portofino Blue paintwork its construction features a remarkable level of bespoke craftsmanship, with sumptuous Red leather and Alcantara trim adorning the interior. Custom-made seats blend classic E-Type 4.2 aesthetics with body-hugging contours and exceptional comfort.

The steering wheel, reminiscent of the period, complements the bespoke pedal box, creating an optimal driving environment. Uniquely designed inertia reel seat belts, cleverly concealed, enhance both luxury and functionality within the interior. For added convenience during breaks, the leather-trimmed underfloor storage compartment provides a perfect spot for on-the-road refreshments.

Under the bonnet, the classic wide-angle Jaguar cylinder head, proven in racing, sits atop a 4.7-litre engine block. Three side-draft Weber 48 DCOE carburettors, along with a performance air filter, ensure optimal breathing. A white ceramic-coated manifold leads to a fully custom-built exhaust system with polished tailpipes. Numerous other distinctive details within the engine bay complete the exceptional package. Handling is enhanced by fully adjustable coil-over dampers, uprated springs, and upgraded anti-roll bars, delivering confident performance while maintaining the expected comfort of a true grand tourer.

The car rides on 15-inch Dunlop racing-style wheels and Avon tires, with a subtly widened body to accommodate the increased width, mirroring the dimensions of the original and legendary lightweight racing E-Types. The purposeful stance of the car, featuring bespoke chrome work without over riders, leaves onlookers in no doubt that this is a serious performance machine.

In summary, this car is the result of countless hours of development and skilled craftsmanship, creating the ultimate classic car for modern driving enthusiasts. It offers unparalleled power and performance, luxury, and bespoke craftsmanship in one highly desirable package.
