Jaguar to produce remaining six units of Lightweight E-Type
Jaguar has announced that they will bring in six new Lightweight E Type cars which will be built on the original 1963-64 specifications and will even include 3.8 liter, all aluminium straight six engine and aluminium body work.
When comparing the Lightweight E Type with standard E Type, it is the former that is 114 kgs lighter than the latter due to the existence of aluminum for engine block and body panels. The model also sees a frugal interior with light hand operated side windows and chrome accents to its exterior. The Lightweight E Type Jaguar will continue to receive the same engine while the new batch will use dormant chassis numbers thus completing the Lightweight E Type, five decades after the last car was introduced.
However, Jaguar has confirmed that while all efforts to replicate chassis, buyers of these new E Types will be able to personalize their cars with additional features to ensure that they are more acceptable than their 50 year old counterparts. No prices for the batch of 6 Lightweight E Types were confirmed as on date.
