The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 L V12 engine, up-rated brakes and standard power steering. Optionally an automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available. The brand new V12 engine was equipped with four Zenith carburettors and was claimed to produce 272 hp, more torque, and a 0-60 mph acceleration of less than 7 seconds. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued, with the Series 3 available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It is thought that only 7,990 convertibles and 7,297 Fixed Head cars were produced.
This Jaguar Series 3 V12 2+2 is presented in opalescent maroon with cinnamon leather interior, and is in lovely condition. It is an original Right Hand Drive car and comes with good history. The car has just been serviced in preparation for the sale. This must be one of the cheapest on offer.
