Our team includes specialists in all areas of E-Type car manufacturing; traditional panel beaters, paint specialists, welding and body experts, coach trimmers, mechanical technicians and project managers; meaning we can make any dream into a reality.

Each E-Type car that we deal with is expertly managed at every stage of the production process. We ensure that your E-Type Jaguar is built to the exact specification required, whether this be Jaguar factory original or uprated to meet the requirements of today’s roads.


We believe that the best way to ensure that you’re happy with the finished product, is to work with you to determine how you want your restored E-Type to look and perform.

If you’d like certain modifications made to your E-Type during the restoration period then we’re able to offer you a bespoke option so that you can fully personalise your E-Type.

We would like to invite you to visit us here in Tonbridge and take a good look at how we are able to manage your restoration and turn your dream car into a reality. Get in contact with us today and you’ll soon see just what makes E-Type UK so special.
