1962 Jaguar E-Type “Low Drag” Coupe

1962 Jaguar E Type Low Drag Coupe

Thrilling road-legal FIA racer with low-drag body by RS Panels and a 350-plus horsepower Rob Beere 3.8. FIA passport. Expertly prepared and ready for road or race.​

We are very pleased to offer this gorgeous Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Low-Drag coupe. Based upon a 1962 E-Type, this stunning car has been built from the ground-up to comply with FIA sporting regulations and is legal for both track and street. The fabulous low-drag bodywork was built using the finest components supplied by renowned UK experts RS Panels and is finished to a very high standard. The exposed rivets, cut-out wheel arches, and aggressively low stance brilliantly capture the essence of the original Lindner-Nocker Low Drag. It sits low on a set of period-look Technomagesio peg-drive wheels which mimic the look of the original Dunlop alloys, but with the strength and durability for modern track use. Sticky Avon CR6-ZZ DOT-race tires give the right period-correct look while offering up excellent grip and handling characteristics. Quality of the metallic silver-gray paintwork is very good, and the car has been carefully enjoyed in the hands of its most recent owner, who maintained it as part of a large collection of significant Jaguar road and racing cars.

Featherweight aluminum doors feature sliding Plexiglas side windows and simple door cards trimmed in black. The purposeful, race-focused cockpit is protected by an FIA-approved roll cage but is also trimmed with carpet and sill upholstery to provide a modicum of comfort. The windscreen is heated for clear vision in all conditions. Required FIA safety devices include a plumbed fire system, interior, and exterior electrical cut-off, and Willans 5-point harnesses. It is currently fitted with period-correct 3.8-style seats trimmed in black leather, and a pair of ultra-light form-fitting race seats will also be included for track duty. The current owner updated the steering with a tilt/telescopic column for additional comfort whether on the road or the race course…………
