If you have ever said “I wish I bought one of those E-Types new when I had the could”, you might just be in with a second chance, as Jagaur are building six ‘brand new’ Lightweight E-Types.


Whats really cool about these six car is that they will be continuing the undesignated chassis numbers from the original run of 18 Lightweight E-Types which only ever made it to 12.


The E-Type Lightweight weighs 114kg less than the normal model due to its aluminium shell, stripped interior and exterior chrome trim, and aluminium 3.8-litre straight-six.


No word on price, but these hand-built cars wont be cheap and even if you have the cash, you cant be sure to get one as Jaguar will prioritise established Jaguar collectors first.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
