Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types

This month we are sad to be waving goodbye to Tony Martin who, as Club Representative, has been looking after members in Gloucestershire.

Thank you, Tony, for your sterling service during the past few years! Do I dare say that we will be back to ‘normal’ with events next year? I certainly hope so. It feels like it has been such a long time. We have Club Weekend (11-12 June) to look forward to, when we will be based in the grounds of the lovely home of club members John and Jan Hunt, nestled alongside the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire. We hope to have the booking facility open in the next month or so...

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...​

The ‘Snetterton Survivor’ to be restored to former glory.

K ent-based specialist E-type UK is beginning the extensive restoration of a Series I 4.2 Roadster that was damaged in a crash at Snetterton, Norfolk in 1965, and has remained unrepaired for over 40 years. Having rolled off the Browns Lane production line in December 1964, the car’s short but intense life was cut short just three months later during the incident at the Norfolk airfield circuit. Owned and driven by Yorkshire millionaire Tom Casson, the E-type crashed at high speed into a tyre wall. The damage remained largely cosmetic, with the side impact damaging numerous body panels, but most mechanical components were unharmed. The E-type remained in its ‘broken’ state...

E-types light up Silverstone

Roger Gage reports on the E-type Challenge race at a wet and gloomy Silverstone Classic

The rain had been relentless for two hours before the 43 cars took to the flooded track in celebration of the E-type’s racing debut at Oulton Park in 1961, and its continued presence in historic racing ever since. What could be better than seeing them repeat years of racing endeavour on Silverstone’s full Grand Prix circuit? From a rolling start, the blue car of Nigel Greensall (91), starting from pole position, took the lead from Gary Pearson (23) and Ben Mitchell (221) in a blaze of headlights and amid a towering wall of spray. A lap later, Mitchell moved up to second after Pearson had a slide leaving The Loop. With a storming drive from the fifth row, Alex Brundle (1) made his way up to third place...

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...
