General

The E-Type Jaguar was initially designed and shown to the public as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupé form (FHC or Fixed Head Coupé) and as a two-seater convertible (OTS or Open Two Seater). A "2+2" four-seater version of the coupé, with a lengthened wheelbase, was released several years later. On its release Enzo Ferrari called it "The most beautiful car ever made". Later model updates of the E-Type were officially designated "Series 2" and "Series 3", and over time the earlier cars have come to be referred to as "Series 1" and "Series 1½". The New York City Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) recognised the significance of the E-Type's design in 1996 by adding a blue roadster to its permanent design collection, one of only six automobiles to receive the distinction.

In 1971 a new 5.3 L twelve-cylinder Jaguar V12 engine was introduced, with uprated brakes and standard power steering. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued and the V12 was available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. The convertible used the longer-wheelbase 2+2 floorplan. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille and flared wheel arches, and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. There were also a very limited number of six-cylinder Series 3 E-Types built. When leaving the factory the V12 Open Two Seater and V12 2 ± 2 originally fitted Dunlop E70VR - 15 inch tyres on 15 × 6K wire or solid wheels, though British police forces would eschew this tyre and fit a higher performing 205/70VR15 Michelin XWX to their Series 3 E-Types. They were produced until 1974. Total production of the E-Type Series III was 15,287 of which 7,297 OTS.

A Jaguar E-Type Roadster is a very desirable car: the perfect combination of wonderful design and a great driving experience make the E-Type an icon of the British automotive industry.
