About the Jaguar Series 1 E-type
The Series 1 can easily be recognised by glass-covered headlights and a superb sleek design. When it was launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type created a furore with its combination of supercar performance and styling.
Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, the model’s combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar front/coil-sprung rear), rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a ‘straight port’ cylinder head, its indomitable 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. The later Series I, 4.2 litre was an improved engine. A road test conducted on the Jaguar E-Type in 1965 gave it a maximum speed of 153mph with the capability of 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds.
With modern processes, materials and skilled craftmanship, we produce our restoration to an incredibly high standard, which far exceeds the original factory build quality. All vehicles that are ordered from Blackline are produced to our customers’ specifications, with a range of optional extras to choose from. Our base restorations for the Series 1 E-Types come with suitable upgrades to improve the running, longevity and reliability.
