Jaguar will be officially in the Techno-Classica of Essen (Germany) between the 5 and the 9 of April. The British brand will present a Jaguar E-Type `Reborn’, which as its own nickname tells us, is a restoration made by the brand under the Jaguar Classic program.
A total of 10 Jaguar E-Type units have been selected and refurbished by brand specialists, as did the sister Land Rover brand with the first-class Range Rover. The E-Type in question has been completely restored to the original factory specifications of the 1960s.
The First Model Returns to Europe from California
The unit that will be in the Techno-Classica of Essen is a first series with body Coupe 4.2 with exterior color Opalescent Gunmetal Gray. Originally exported to California in May 1965 , it traveled 125,000 miles until in 1983 it stopped being used.
Despite this, the car retains the body, engine and gearbox with its original numbering, so in Jaguar Classic simply have ensured that everything was back to work as when it was new.In fact, this is the line that has been followed in the restoration process, in which all original pieces that were salvageable have been preserved. Only new with original parts of Jaguar Classic what was essential to replace.
Detail up in the Welds
Obviously the corrosion of the body after so many years without use, was remarkable. Today welding techniques have come a long way, and that is why in the work of restoring the body has resorted to a type of welding whose final appearance is similar to that of the E-Type of the 60s.
Customers will also be able to request their car tailor made, and in that tailoring Jaguar gives them the possibility to include various elements that in the original model were not available but that over the years they went incorporating the different generations of E-Type.We speak of improvements on the type of gearbox synchronizers, brake calipers in the front axle or more improvements to cool the engine.
These 10 units will be sold directly at the new Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works facility in the UK and its price, which we hope is astronomical , will depend on the specifications of each of the cars.
