Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 OTS


Series 3 Roadster
5.3 V12


The Series 3 E-Type was introduced in 1971, to ensure the E-Type continued to appeal to the US-market (Jaguar’s biggest buyer), the wheelbase was lengthened, power steering was added as well as Jaguar’s brand new roadgoing V12 engine. These changes made the E-Type a much more comfortable and capable grand tourer. To keep the E-Type in tune with 1970s design, flared wheel arches were added and a redesigned enclosed grille as well as other, more subtle changes.

This 1971 Series 3 OTS was fully restored by E-Type UK in 2014 with no expense spared, featuring substantial upgrades transforming the E-Type into a true sports car. Presented in an eye-catching Carmen Red and paired with a retrimmed Biscuit interior, creating an authentic Jaguar combination.

Originally delivered to NYC, USA in December 1971, the car was later sourced as a restoration project late in 2011 for Englishman, Mr Todd. For driving ease the E-Type was converted to right-hand drive and in the pursuit of sports car performance was fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission, leaps head from its factory automatic set up. Other mechanical upgrades include:

  • Electronic fuel injection
  • Uprated front shocks with stiffer antiroll bar and torsion bars
  • New sports power steering rack
  • Uprated Alternator
  • AP front discs and callipers
  • Full Haywood & Scott sports exhaust system
  • Alloy radiator with cooling fans and Samco hoses

Sitting proudly on a set of deep-dish 15-inch wire wheels, this Series 3 offers an unmissable stance that will surely turn heads in town. Since it’s restoration in 2014 the E-Type is currently presented in superb condition with its desirable lines and road mark free body. Step inside to a retrimmed biscuit interior and uprated Moto-Lita steering wheel, providing a sporty and comfortable driving experience. The E-Type also features a period correct rebuilt radio with MP3 and Bluetooth interface providing modern day luxuries.

Accompanied by numerous restoration invoices and receipts, this exceedingly high-spec Series 3 V12 offers a very rare opportunity to buy a high-performance 70’s classic that is ready to be enjoyed.
