Jaguar Lightweight E-Type


Artikelnummer: jag-e-9781907085178 Categorie:


Jaguar Lightweight E-type, the autobiography of 4wd.


This Great Cars book outlines in exhaustive detail the history of the most important competition Jaguar E-type. Run by John Coombs with factory support and driven by some of the best racing drivers of the day, this car took part in the E-type’s first motor race and later became the prototype all-aluminium Lightweight E-type.

The car’s post-Coombs racing life is also fully covered, embracing up-and-coming Brian Redman’s exploits with it in 1965 and its modern-day successes at the Goodwood Revival, where it has twice won the TT Celebration race and has been raced by numerous fine drivers, including Dario Franchitti and Emanuele Pirro.


Chapter 7 1st Proofs-12-reduced_renamed_10146In this book expert author Philip Porter covers this famous E-type’s active life in every detail, using a wide variety of source material – including factory documentation – to explore not only the car’s race-by-race performances but also the trials and tribulations of its development and evolution. A fine array of period photographs – every competition appearance is shown – and a gallery of magnificent modern images support the meticulously researched text.


This is the complete record of a most significant racing car and the first in the exciting new Great Cars series – next title is Porsche 917 written by Ian Wagstaff.
