Rare Jaguar Type-e 3.8 100% restored (€110,000 cost)


Considered ‘the most beautiful car in the world’ by Enzo Ferrari, the Type-e is a timeless and unique car.


The model we are presenting is just as unique in terms of its features, its condition and the improvements that have been made to it.


Delivered on 7 May 1962, less than a year after its presentation at the Geneva Motor Show, this Type-e coupé is equipped with the desirable 6-cylinder 3.8 engine, which develops 269 hp and delivers performance that is still as good as today, with a top speed of 243 km/h (0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 s. and 0 to 200 km/h in just 27.6 s.).


The restoration undertaken by a renowned specialist lasted several years and was completed in 2017. The owner's aim was also to make a number of reversible changes and improvements, enabling the car to be driven with greater ease and reliability over all distances.

Among the notable improvements, this car has been fitted with a 5-speed gearbox (instead of 4 speeds and a non-synchronised 1st gear). Of course, the original gearbox is still there.


We also note the use of :

9:1 high-compression pistons, 

Specific camshafts, 

Lighter flywheel and pulley, 

Reinforced oil pump, 

Larger valves, 

Aluminium radiator and modern fan, 

SU carburettor kit with direct intake, 

Electronic ignition, 

Big bore’ INX manifolds + line, 

Coopercraft brakes with ventilated front discs, 

Spax shock absorbers, 

Large torsion bars, etc. 


The interior has also been completely refurbished by a professional using quality materials.

The €110,000 restoration costs break down as follows:

Mechanical: €70,000

Upholstery: €16,000

Bodywork/paint: €20,000

Michelin wheels and tyres: €4,500 


In addition to the gearbox, the car comes with 4 bumpers and 4 original wheels.


The latest MOT has just been passed, and it's clean!


This Type-e is a rare opportunity to buy a new 1962 car. Its improvements and reliability will enable the future owner to cover long distances, and to use this car in all conditions and for its greatest pleasure.
