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...​

Editorial

 

The thin end of the wedge’ is a phrase I have been using a good deal lately in relation to JLR’s actions in the C-type replica world. However, their lawyers are not only actively pursuing those who build replicas commercially, but they are also sending ‘cease and desist’ orders to artists who are selling their images of E-types and Land-Rovers.


This situation is impacting on the club and E-type 60...

E-types in the News

 

The London Concours 2021 will be hosting a curated display of iconic or innovative British automotive designs and the personalities behind them. A class will be entirely dedicated to Iconic British Designs. The E-type Series I and Malcom Sayer will feature in the display, together with other British motoring icons such as Alec Issigonis’ Mini.


The Iconic British Designs category is one of 11 classes at this year’s London Concours, taking place from 8-10 June at the Honourable Artillery Company HQ.

Journey to an E-type

 

David Wheeler explains how he went from Mini to E-type, and the work he’s done on his Series 3 since.

Being a petrolhead, my sports car ownership has been quite varied. I
learnt to drive at the age of 13 and willed the years away until I could take my test. I had my first car (a Mini) two months before my 17th birthday and, as much as I idolised it, I drove it into the ground, much to the disgust of my father. When it failed the MoT, the only option...

Why buy an E-type?

 

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

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.

News

Hillclimb bookings for E-type 60 are going very well and we will be finalising the classes in early May, which will include the Norman Dewis Memorial Trophy. Still room for more entries!


The E-type Catwalk (where we’ll have one example of each model) is filling nicely but we have space for a few more. Let me know if you are interested.
