Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types

Thank you all for joining us last month – a special mention to representatives of the JDC and JEC who joined us for the weekend. We haven’t yet started planning E70, but watch this space…

A few weeks on from E-type 60 at Shelsley Walsh and we have enjoyed receiving many lovely messages from visitors and exhibitors. All feedback is most welcome and is taken into account when we plan future events.

However, what is being planned is the 2022 Club Weekend. We have the date – 11-12 June – but we’re not quite there yet with a venue. The Geneva Run, postponed from 2020, will run straight after Club Weekend...

Editorial

 

It was not without its challenges! Due to illness and other reasons, certain key people had to withdraw at the last minute but the team, as ever, pulled together brilliantly. We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful, very generous messages from so many of those who were able to join us at Shelsley Walsh for E-type 60. Our one sadness was that overseas members could not join us. We missed you dreadfully.

 

The key word is ‘support’. We had the most amazing support from so many people and companies. Our main sponsors, SNG Barratt and Twyford Moors, were crucial. Thanks also to Welsh Enterprises for their support.

 

For many, the star cars made...

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.

About 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...​

A new museum celebrating British marques and models opened on 20 May in a former wireworks factory on the banks of the River Derwent in Ambergate, Derbyshire.

 

The ‘Great British Car Journey’ is a collection of more than 130 vehicles that dominated the roads for nearly a century. Visitors will be guided round the exhibition with a unique handheld audio device that tells the story of individual vehicles as well as the development of the UK’s motor industry.

 

Starting with the Austin Seven in 1922, the ‘Great British Car Journey’ chronicles car design and production in the UK through to the modern-day McLaren 650S. Thirty-two of the cars are available to drive on a private road as part of...

To commemorate and celebrate the 60th anniversary of the E-type (E60) and the 50th of the Series III, the Jaguar Drivers Club of Australia organised a weekend run to Bathurst in the Central West of New South Wales. The ‘Diamond’ weekend was held on 24-25 April 2021.

Central to the Diamond weekend was a photoshoot on Mt Panorama. The location was the picturesque property of JDCA members inside motor racing’s famous Mt Panorama track. The ‘E-type Paddock’ was located alongside Mountain Straight...

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...
