Jaguar Classic has announced that it will be restoring ten of the first generation E-Type‘s and selling them directly to customers as part of the Jaguar Land Rover “Reborn” program. The first of the Series 1 E-Type’s is a 1965 model finished in “Opalescent Gunmetal Grey” packing a 4.2-liter engine and 78,000 miles. Jaguar acquired the vehicle which has been in storage since 1983 and restored it to factory specs retaining as many original parts as possible.
Set to debut at Techno-Classica Essen in Germany next week, the starting price will be about $355,000 USD. Enthusiasts with deep pockets can also add on costly options like an upgraded cooling system like the one found in the Lightweight E-Type and upgraded brake calipers from the Series 2 E-Type.
