The highly desirable and sought after model is a real collector’s piece. The flat floor foot wells of the original design are considered the purest design concept. The central instrument panel features the dot patterned aluminium which flows down through the centre console. Fixed back bucket seats trimmed in leather complement the aluminium trim.
The 3.8-litre engine produced 260Ft.lb torque @ 4000 rpm and 265 BHP @ 5500 rpm with triple SU carburettors.
The new dished foot-well displays more space around the foot pedals, providing drivers with increased comfort for longer journeys. A very popular model for enthusiast and collectors as the car features the same specification as the previous model with the benefit of increased comfort.
In July 1963 the interior benefited from the new arm rests trimmed in leather mounted on the doors as well as the addition of a storage box fitted to the centre console. From this point onwards the aluminium instrument panel and centre console were trimmed in leather also.
The 4.2-litre E-type featured more torque from the increased engine capacity 283 Ft.lb @ 4000rpm and 265 BHP @ 5400 rpm with triple SU carburettors.
In addition to the upgraded engine this model also featured servo assisted brakes, folding forward seats and a full synchro-mesh 4 speed gearboxes. These upgrades provided drivers with a more refined driving experience.
A very collectable model and regarded as the upgraded E-type.
No. By improving the E-type’s reliability and driveability, it will only be more desirable to future owners.
In many cases you can retain the original components and later return your car to a standard configuration.
