In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in the Daily Telegraph's list of the '100 most beautiful cars' of all time. In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. The E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a grand-tourer in two-seater coupé form and as a convertible. When released, Enzo Ferrari called it "the most beautiful car ever made". The model was made in three distinct versions which are now generally referred to as 'Series I', 'Series II' and 'Series III' with a transitional model between Series I and Series II known unofficially as 'Series 1½'. The first 300 cars built had flat floors and external bonnet latches and tend to attract a premium. After that, the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the twin hood latches moved to inside the car. The 3.8 litre engine was increased to 4.2 litres in October 1964. The Series I can be recognised by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small 'mouth' opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights above bumpers and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. Open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged 'mouth' and twin electric fans are all hallmarks of Series II cars. Series III models featured a new 5.3 litre, Jaguar V12 engine and uprated brakes together with power steering. Easily identifiable by the larger front grill and flared wheel arches, the convertible used the longer wheelbase 2+2 floorplan.

This beautiful 1973 Series III V12 Convertible was manufactured on the 4th July 1973 and supplied new into the UK market by Page & Scott. This right hand drive manual E Type is finished in Azure Blue with Biscuit hide and sits on chrome wire wheels. The vendor has owned the car for 20 years and prior to his ownership, the car had a major restoration in 1988 including many new body panels and a reconditioned engine.  When the vendor bought the car in 1993 following an inspection by XK engineering, he completed any items on their report leaving the car in fabulous order throughout. This Jaguar comes with a Jaguar Heritage Production Record Trace Certificate and one look at the condition of this car is sure to be enough to convince any prospective buyer.
