Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club
The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types
E-type 60 Photo Gallery
Well, I am afraid we did not win either award for which we were short-listed – The International Historic Motoring Awards ‘Club of the Year’ or the Royal Automobile Club ‘Motoring Spectacle of the Year’. But, and I think it is a big ‘but’, the E-type Club was the only organisation to be short-listed for both. I now have this saying: ‘Better to have been short-listed and lost, than not to have been short-listed at all’!
Changing the subject completely and talking of charity, if I may, I would like to give a very big plug for our latest book: Drivers on Drivers on Drivers – 31 ‘greats’ talking about their rivals, their team-mates and their friends. Like E-type 60, it is supporting Hope for Tomorrow, the cancer charity that creates and runs mobile cancer-treatment units.
If you buy the book direct from us, £11 per book will go to the charity. If we can sell out the first edition, we can pay for the running of one unit for nearly half a year. However, it is important to buy direct, please, as buying from elsewhere will result in just six weeks’ worth of running costs (due to the 60 per cent discounts we have to give to trade buyers).
We have seven F1 World Champions, from Stewart to Hamilton, Grand Prix winners from Brooks to Webber, Le Mans winners from Bell to Pirro...
Apart from the emotional aspects, there are a number of hard-headed reasons to buy an E-type.
Reliability – there is no point in owning a classic car unless you can use and enjoy it, and do so with confidence that it is not going to let you down. All the E-type’s mechanical components were used in the higher volume saloon...

Why Join the E-type Club?
XKEDATA.com is a project to help people find information about a particular car or series of cars by serial number.
This site welcomes participation from anyone interested in these cars. We aren't experts, but there is also no exclusivity to the data hosted here. You don't have to be a member to list a car.
If a site user sees a car with such-and-such car number in a classified ad that's what will be entered. It's all that's known at that point. But over time, hopefully more information will be added, corrections will be made, and at the end of the day we'll know a bit more about a particular car than we would otherwise.

The All-American Hero and Jaguar’s Racing E-types
Chassis 875027, the focus of this story, was the first E-type campaigned by American racing entrepreneur Briggs Cunningham’s famous team and its performances helped persuade Jaguar to use the E-type as the basis for a competition thoroughbred that has become one of the most coveted of all time: the Lightweight...
E-type Jaguar DIY
Restoration & Maintenance
An expert could not have written this book. Experts start with knowledge and experience, and so inevitably make assumptions and gloss over important details. Chris Rooke had played with classic cars before but had never fully restored one, and knew nothing about them...
Jaguar Lightweight E-type - 4 WPD
The first in the acclaimed ‘Great Cars’ series, telling the story of the car that took part in this famous E-type’s first ever race, under the aegis of the great John Coombs...
Since its founding in 2004, the E-type Club has gone from strength to strength and we now have members in over 50 countries...
What makes the E-type Club different is that we focus 100% on E-types.
There are several excellent Jaguar clubs but they have to cover a vast range of cars and interests from pre-war through to the current range. Naturally, they cannot concentrate on just one model...
Eight E-types at NEC Classic
Motor Show auction
Silverstone Auctions had eight E-types for sale at their NEC Classic
Motor Show auction on 12-14 November in the E-type’s 60th
anniversary year. Five were from the Devon Collection, including
the 1961 ‘EBL’ Roadster, chassis number 850039, which sold for
£297,000. Owned by the vendor for almost 45 years, it was sold with what was described in the catalogue as ‘a substantial quantity of paperwork and photographs documenting the extensive rebuild alongside its Heritage Certificate, handbooks, and other items of interest’.
A 1961 Series I 3.8 ‘flat floor’ Roadster from the same collection sold for £130,500. It was manufactured in September 1961 and dispatched in October...
A Revival of period drama
JA welcome return to the Goodwood Revival this September
saw plenty of E-type action, as Philip Porter reports
After last year’s one-off SpeedWeek, Goodwood has been able to host a full complement of meetings in 2021, and it was great to be back at the Revival – traditionally one of our favourite events. There had been a number of changes since 2019, including the addition of an extra track crossing at Madgwick and the creation of a new retail area plus other attractions on the Lavant infield. The latter wasn’t a great success for those who were based there, but the racing was, as ever, first class throughout the weekend.
Our late friend Sir Stirling Moss was honoured with a memorable parade, Saturday being 73 years to the day since he won a three-
lap F3 race at the Goodwood circuit’s first-ever...

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
and a Happy and healthy New Year
A good time to reflect on a rather strange year – fortunately not as worrying and restricted as 2020, but still unsettling enough. I think we’re all looking
forward to something more akin to normality in 2022, and hope that our overseas friends are able to get out and about more locally, and can hopefully visit the UK.
This time of year is the prime time for planning future events, and both we and our tour partners are...
