Bonhams have anounced this 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight, chassis number S850667, for their upcoming auction in Scottsdale.

Jaguar developed only 12 E-Types from the factory with a lightweight aluminum hood, wide-angle head and Lucas mechanical injection.

This Lightweight was first delivered to racer and dealer Bob Jane in Australia who raced many events and used it to win the Australian GT Championship.

Bonhams will sell this car at their Scottsdale Auction on the 19th Jan 2017.

UPDATE: Sold for US$ 7,370,000 (CA$ 9,855,087) inc. premium

Hagerty’s Own E-Type

While researching the gauntlet panel/shift dome/shift tower for our E-Type I decided to lookup McKeel Hagerty’s own 1966 E-Type.

That’s because his car is a 20,000-mile, original-paint and original-interior survivor.

The car is almost completely untouched from original delivery minus a few items like hoses, clamps, ignition loom and header tank.

Here it is pictured from the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Chassis 1E11307 for reference.
