Originally launched in 1968, the S2 E-type is the facelifted model of the internationally adored E-Type (XKE) and is powered by a 4.2-litre straight 6 engine that produced 265hp. There’s something so wonderfully simple about driving a classic car like this. Where today’s cars are full of cluttered digital dashboards and over-complicated traction control systems and driver aids, cars like the E-Type take you back to a simpler time when you had 3 pedals, 5 forward gears, some Smiths dials and some chunky rocker switches. You very quickly forget about any modern troubles and drift off back to a time where car design was at its peak.
This fabulous fixed-head coupe variant of the Series 2 E-Type is presented in a bright and brilliant red paintwork in fantastic condition and inside there is tan carpet and tan leather centre console with a black dash and new tan leather sports seats. The car comes with partial history and is ready for any inspection. The Series 2 is the perfect E-Type for a Jaguar enthusiast with elegant and beautiful styling with simple mechanics.
The car has also benefitted from some light “resto-mods” including hydraulic power steering and an uprated servo to go with the 4 pot front calipers and vented discs.
