Some members have experienced issues trying to access articles in the Technical Library, so this is getting an overhaul to make it more accessible and user-friendly.

 

If there’s anything you’d like to bring to our attention, or something you’d like to add to Members’ Corner, please email sarah@e-typeclub.com.

We are really looking forward to Club Weekend and are delighted so many of you have already booked – it really is a wonderful opportunity to gather with like-minded people in a lovely location. (Incidentally, what is the collective name for a group of E-type enthusiasts? A purring?) Keep an eye on the website for updates, as more is being added regularly.

 

And - there are still a couple of places on the Geneva Run for those looking to stylishly sashay towards Switzerland in June.

Fort Lauderdale RM Sothebys auction sees E-types in demand

The recent RM Sothebys Fort Lauderdale Auction, held at Broward County Convention Center on 25-26 March, saw four E-types sold. A 1962 Series 1 Roadster, delivered to its first owner in Miami in July 1962, and owned by the same family from new, sold for $110,000. The car, finished in Cream, with Red interior, was restored 16 years ago, and featured an unrestored factory hardtop, with original manuals and documentation, and JDHT certificate.

Another 1962 Series 1 Roadster, finished in Green with a Tan interior and Black soft-top, with matching-numbers engine and extensive documentation, sold for $137,500. This E-type was built on 7 March 1962, and arrived at...

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

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...

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...           

This book tells the story of the 1963 Lightweight Jaguar E-type that was famously given an aerodynamic makeover by Dr Samir Klat of Imperial College, London, for the 1964 season...

Two icons of their realms

US Club member Jack D Griffith compares driving an E-type to flying arguably its aviation counterpart, a Piper Super Cub

A good friend who fails to appreciate special cars or special airplanes told me: ‘All cars are the same: in a car to go left, turn the wheel to the left, and to go right, turn it to the right.’ He continued: ‘All airplanes are the same too: to go up, pull the stick back and to go down, pull it farther back and hold on!’

 

This fellow has never driven a Jaguar E-type or flown a Piper Super Cub, two icons of their respective worlds. Comparing the two reveals many similarities and reasons why both bring so much pleasure, and smiles from others. Many current owners of E-types grew up having had rides in a Piper Cub and most owners of Super Cubs were growing up when the E-type was introduced to the world.

 

We know the history of the E-type, which Enzo Ferrari called: ‘The most beautiful car ever designed.’ It was a direct descendent of the racing D-type and the short-lived XK SS – a D-type fitted with a windshield and...

Reunion is probably what we should be calling this year’s E-type Club Day/Weekend. After our two years of enforced isolation, this gathering will, effectively, be just that, a reunion. For that reason, it has a special significance – our first big opportunity to meet up again with fellow members, old friends, acquaintances and various exhibitors. It will also be a chance to relax in good company, that is, a fine selection of E-types. The private setting is an especially lovely one, with the cars arranged around the lake and lawns of members’ John and Jan Hunt’s delightful rural home near Malvern. So, do join us please, if you can. We deserve a good party after all the misery of the last couple of years.

I am delighted to announce that Sarah King, who has been working part- time in the office, is going full-time. Sarah is a key member of the Club team, supporting Louise on the events side, looking after merchandise and, above all, working with our wonderful Representatives.

Indeed, Sarah is encouraging as many Representatives as possible to bring groups of E-types from their areas to the Club Day/Weekend in The Midlands. On June 11/12, all navigators need to be programmed with directions to the Malvern Hills and the village of Hanley Swan. We would be overjoyed to see any overseas members, and we are thrilled to already have members from the Netherlands and USA joining us.

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...​
