Always fancied owning a Jaguar E-type? Most imagine themselves stylishly wafting through picturesque countryside in their 1960s classic, and you can. Just not in this one. This is the world’s fastest E-type. And it’s up for sale.
In truth, there is little factory E-type left in this beast, but what it lacks in period originality it more than makes up for in backstory. Having started life as a 1971 E-type Series 3, engineer and racer Fred Cliffe had the idea to turn it into a Modsports machine. Together with Rob Beere Racing and driver Malcolm Hamilton, the car was modified almost beyond belief over 13 years.
Boasting a 750bhp 7.3-litre V12 TWR Group C engine, aerodynamic extensions and a rear wing from a Silk Cut XJR-9, it can hit 150mph in eight seconds and go on past 180mph.
