Video: Tribute to the Jaguar E-Type Lightweight

Posted on by  

The Jaguar E-Type was unveiled in 1961 and between 1963 and 1964, Jaguar offered a Lightweight version, specially developed for racing. The model was limited to only 12 units, plus two spare bodies.

It was not very successful as the C-Type and D-Type racing cars, as it did not won any Le Mans or Sebring competitions, but it enjoyed plenty of success in private hands and in smaller races.

Jason Len decided it was time for his 1964 E-Type to went through a recreation process, so it spent lots of hours and used tons of materials to rebuild it. Of course lots of money were also required, but apparently that was irrelevant for Jason. All he wanted was to chase his dream.

Apparently, Jason devoted his life to Jaguar , so when deciding to rebuild this car, the decision was very easy to make. He started to work and the result is quite impressive.

Jason and his car were the subject of Petrolicious’ latest video, which you can see above.
