Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

Grey Jaguar E-type

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types


The Club event season started with a swing with our CBR Technical Masterclass and Annual Spring Meeting taking place over the weekend of 22-23 April. Full reports and photos will be coming soon, but both events were well attended and enjoyed, and dates for 2024 have already been set. So catch these happy smiling faces next spring (l-r: SNG Barratt Head Technician, Pete Stant and CBR’s Andy Waters).


And we are filling up the calendar with new events from both Backwater Tours and Classics on the Road – with...

Jaguar Heritage Certificates

Since 1931, details of every SS and Jaguar vehicle that has been produced have been recorded.


Initially in a bound ledger which was completed as a vehicle made its way down the production line; from the 1980s a computerised system to recording the same details. Learn more below.

Treasures of Andalucia tour

A Club member describes a 10-day tour in October 2022 with Classics on the Road

Despite having been regular tourers in our E-type since 2007, a combination of the COVID pandemic and other personal circumstances meant that, come the spring of 2022, it had been more than four years since we last ventured outside the UK with the car. We decided it was time to prove to ourselves that we still had what it takes to tour. Positive previous experience of touring in Spain with Classics on the Road, together with a love of all things Spanish, meant that the Treasures of Andalucia tour was the obvious candidate for our return to driving the E-type abroad.

By way of whetting appetites for this account of the trip, there are three big questions to which readers will obviously expect answers:
• In which city did one couple try to check in to the wrong hotel?
• What inspired three couples to enter an old people’s home?
• Which comic look-a-like was in great demand for photos?
Read on for answers to these questions and other revelations!

One of the joys of living where we do, in East Kent, is that the Continent is just a short step away – we are within 20 minutes of both the Eurotunnel and the...


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...​

1962 competition E-type CUT 8 for sale through Fiskens

A significant historic competition E-type, CUT 8 will forever be associated with Dick Protheroe, who campaigned a series of CUT-plated modified Jaguars to great effect in period. Originally a dark green FHC race-prepared for BRDC life member Ed Nelson in 1965–66, chassis 860953 was registered 105 ENX and raced in ’66 at events as far afield as the Nürburgring and Mugello. The car was then sold to Rosemary Protheroe and designated CUT 8 as a tribute to her late husband, Dick Protheroe, who tragically paid the ultimate price aboard a Ferrari 330P at Oulton Park in 1966.

A racer herself, Rosemary met Dick at a race meeting and upon his passing became Managing Director of his Leicestershire garage. She resolved to go racing again, building CUT 8 with her late husband’s team. Resprayed in the Protheroe livery, 860953 gained a...


I am delighted to announce we have another Patron. Joining the great Ian Callum, we now also have world-famous motoring personality Richard Hammond.

Richard is a long-term E-type owner and enthusiast. In a recent email, he wrote: ‘I’ve added another E-type (’62 Coupe awaiting restoration to its original Dark Opalescent Blue) to my little collection since we last met...’

Richard’s restoration company, The Smallest Cog, is based in Hereford, which is only 40 minutes from Club HQ and he lives nearby. When we last corresponded, in late April, he was just off to the States for a fortnight’s filming for The Grand Tour, but said he would come over and visit us...

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...

XKE Data viewed on laptop

XKE Data 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.
