Lot #1402 - The Jaguar being presented here is a great restored example that boasts a number of performance and comfort upgrades. Professionally restored by marque specialists, it was taken apart, body worked, fitted, all parts were fit to the car during the body work stage, and then it was primed, sealed, painted base coat / clear coat, with all body parts painted off the car individually. The fit and finish are excellent, with a brilliant paint job that has been wet sanded and buffed to bring out the deep luster and shine. The bright work was rechromed as needed, with a lot of attention to detail taken during the restoration process. The upholstery department freshened up the interior to add to the elegant appearance. It is dazzling in a dark maroon paired with a Biscuit interior with a black top and biscuit boot cover, and it also includes a Tonneau cover. This E-Type is equipped with performance upgrades including a Tec III Engine Management System, and an accompanying laptop computer for use in adjusting and tuning the roadster's engine, which is mated to a 5-speed transmission, adding to the performance. The Tec III system functions as an electronic brain that increases the power and performance of the engine, and really gives the roadster a significant kick where it counts. This V12 XKE exudes excellent performance, handling, and power while giving the driver an exciting, and smooth ride. This not a typical E-type. To complement the driving experience it has an Alpine stereo / CD player with a power amp and six speakers. It has been well maintained, recently serviced, and is detailed inside and out.
