1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 'Flat Floor' 3.8-Litre Roadster

Chassis no. 885083

Engine no. R.2199-8

Body no. V1067

Gearbox no.- EB1315JS

1st Registration - Nov. 1961

*One of the first hundred (hand built) E-type produced

* Just restored (March 2018)

* Mint condition

*Only 14.000,00 km previous restoration

*Opalescent grey body color, Carmen red interiors

* Full restoration of all viable original components (circa 90%)

*Jaguar original parts

*First E-type registered in Portugal

*Heritage Certificate

Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market, capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal.

With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 250kg less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. The Cd (drag coefficient) is of 0.4, adding credence to the old test pilots' adage "If it looks good, it'll fly good", and it does.

This wonderful example is among the first hundred totally handmade E-Types produced in Coventry, it has left-hand drive, the flat floor and various other features that characterize these early models, being the first one registered in Portugal (November 1961).

This mint condition vehicle retains all of the original features, is a pureblooded flat floor E-type which was restored over a five-year period to virtually factory-original specification (see photographic record on file), using mostly its viable parts and genuine Jaguar - not reproduction - parts, has the Heritage certificate shows.

The car has been used sparingly over the last 50 years, covering a little over 14.000,00 km as evidenced by the unbroken sequence of expired IPO (MoT) certificates on file. It also comes with its original tools and handbook (the latter now very rare), an old-style logbook.

Finished in Opalescent Grey (as in original condition) with Carmen Red leather interior, this beautiful and early hand built 'flat floor' E-Type is worthy of the closest inspection.

Nice to look at it but on closer inspection the car has so many wrong details...

If this is worth such a price tag?!

Auction description:

Lot Number 139

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Fixed Head Coupé

Offered without reserveRM | Sotheby's - THE SÁRAGGA COLLECTION 20 - 21 SEPTEMBER 2019

Chassis No. 885083

Engine No. P2199-8

Presented here is one of the first one hundred E-Type coupes built largely by hand at Jaguar’s Coventry facility. Registered in November 1961, the left-hand-drive car is also the very first E-Type to be registered in Portugal. Perhaps most important, it was built prior to February 1962 and is an early “flat floor” example so coveted by collectors.

The car has been restored to its original colour scheme of Opalescent Grey over a Carmine Red leather interior, and importantly, the car retains its original engine with matching-numbers head and block. The restoration was completed over a period of five years using genuine Jaguar parts whenever possible. A true highlight of Mr. Sáragga’s collection, this is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase an important example of an early E-Type, beautifully restored in its stunning original factory colours.

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?
