The particular Jaguar V12 'E'Type Roadster is believed to have changed hands in the late eighties for over seventy thousand pounds after undergoing a complete rebuild by XK Engineering. Since then it has covered only three thousand miles and the genuine mileage from new is only fifty five thousand miles.
The history of the car is fully documented from new and we have been informed by the vendor that the car is a former Benson & Hedges concours winner. Today the car is still in genuinely concours condition and comes in its original factory specification of primrose yellow, manual transmission and of course, the chrome wire wheels. When not in use the vehicle has always been stored in a dehumidified garage.
This must be one the best examples of this truly supercar on offer and with the manual transmission we are sure the new lucky owner will find this an extremely rewarding car to drive.

Hi

Would anyone have a copy of the DEC 88 mag this car featured in? I'd love to see the pictures.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
