In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno got the chance to review a 1964 Jaguar E-Type , not a stock one, but still a pretty enjoyable drive, at least according to Jay Leno. The model was brought back to life by Jason Len from XKs Unlimited, who wanted to bring the flavor of the track to this E-Type, while keeping it totally streetable.
This Jag was updated with a roomier interior, a new alloy hood, factory-built Le Mans racing lights, a custom front bumper to accommodate the racing lights, knock-off wheels, Le Mans winglets and a new exhaust system with side pipes. The model is powered by a 3.8-liter inline-six engine that delivers a total of 300 horsepower — a 70 horsepower increase over the stock E-Type.
Check out the video to see if Jay Leno thinks all these updates are suitable for the 1964 E-Type. We think it’s an interesting ride!
