(SOLD) This 1973 Jaguar Series III V12 Roadster is a great restored example that boasts a number of performance and comfort upgrades. It was professionally restored by marquee specialists, Classic Showcase of Oceanside, CA. It was taken apart, body stripped, they fit and worked the body, all parts were fit to the car in bare metal, and it was primered, sealed, painted base coat/clear coat, with all 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. The master trimmers fit and installed a new interior in the proper materials. It is dazzling in a dark Maroon paired with a Biscuit interior, a Black top and biscuit boot cover, it also includes a Tonneau cover. This V12 model exudes excellent performance, handling, and power while giving the driver a non-typical smooth ride. In addition, 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, along with a 5-speed transmission. 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! To complement your driving experience it has an Alpine stereo / CD player with a power amp and 6 speakers for your listening pleasure. It has been well maintained, recently serviced, was detailed inside and out, and simply begs to be driven and enjoyed!
Launched in 1961 at the international motor show in Geneva, the E-type, or XKE, echoed the sensation of the XK-120, perhaps even more. An astonishing performance package, with amazing speed and handling, the XKE’s brand new 4-wheel independent suspension system was so well conceived, it was used by Jaguar for over thirty years. In 1971, a new 5.3 liter 12-cylinder Jaguar V-12 engine was introduced, with upgraded brakes and standard power steering and was available only as a convertible and a 2+2 coupe. This is the second to last year that Jaguar produced the E-type.
