1962 Jaguar E-Type Semi-Lightweight Roadster

A gorgeous and evocative semi-lightweight E-Type built from the ground-up by UK specialists Zealia Engineering. Superb quality and high specification including dry-sump 3.8, triple Weber 45s, 5-speed Getrag, fuel cell, and limited-slip diff. A proven competitor, ideal for fast road or historic rallying.​

Mr. Mark Wright of Leicester, England, commissioned Brian Wilkinson’s Zealia Engineering to create this car for use in the highly-competitive club racing scene in the UK.
