Jaguar Lightweight E-Type will carry a price tag of 1 million pounds

Article by Christian A., on May 19, 2014

Last week, we revealed you the fact that Jaguar will build the remaining E-Type Lightweights. Each vehicle will be handbuilt by a special team of craftsmen and will be a perfect reproduction of the iconic Jaguar E-Type Lightweight built between 1963 and 1964.

What really surprised us today was the price for these vehicles. Of course, we would expect the to be expensive but according to Car Magazine, the six remaining vehicles will bring 6 million pounds to Jaguar, as each coupe will arrive with a price tag of 1 million pounds or around $1.7 million or 1.22 million euros.

Jaguar expects the new cars to be bought by established car collectors. The history of the vehicles is quite short: back in 1963, Jaguar decided to built 18 vehicles that were homologated for GT racing and sold to privateers, but only 12 were finished by 1964.

Jaguar will use the remaining chassis that had a special ‘S’ prefix, while the monocoque and body panels will be made from aluminum. Powering the vehicles will be a 3.8-liter straight six engine that will deliver around 300 bhp.

Compared with the standard version, the E-Type Lightweights were 114 kg lighter thanks to extensive use of aluminum. [source: CarMagazine]
