Recently this video has been floating around on facebook.
It shows the fabrication of the lightweight E-Type continuation cars by Jaguar Land Rover.
What’s really impressive is the tooling for each of the subassemblies which is more akin to a modern production. I don’t think there is anywhere in the world building E-Types to such a high level.
Started a new series, or video log (VLOG) on youtube to document the day-to-day.
Any comments are appreciated as we are new to this.
Found a couple great Austin Healey videos lately. If you have any to contribute please let me know

Today Gooding and Company anounced this 1957 Jaguar XKSS, one of only 16 surviving examples.
The estimate is at $16,000,000 – $18,000,000USD which would make it one of the most expensive British cars in the world.
This car, chassis XKSS-716 was also originally delivered to Stanley C. McRobert of Montreal who raced it in Canada until 1961.
Gooding and Company describe the car: “This particular XKSS possesses a relatively long and successful competition history, with excellent results and no record of serious incident during its career. It has a continuous, well-documented provenance that counts respected collectors among its former owners. It has also proven reliable in numerous vintage races and long-distance tours, yet remains in fundamentally original order six decades after it was built. Its recent restoration was conducted by one of the leading marque specialists, whose expertise and experience has ensured that its performance is no less impressive than its appearance.”
The car will be offered by Gooding at their upcoming Amelia Island auction. More info availble here: http://www.goodingco.com/vehicle/1957-jaguar-xkss/
