Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types

Well, we have three successful Club events under our belt, and already planning ahead for 2025. Spring Meeting (South) will take place at Hartsfield Manor once again, at the slightly later date of May 11 (to hopefully avoid the April showers), and we are hoping to fix a date for the CBR Technical Masterclass soon. Our first Spring North Meeting took place at the Renaissance at Kelham Hall and we were all blown away by the venue, which was gorgeous, inside and out. The weather wasn’t bad either! There will be a full report and photos in a later issue. We are hoping to add this to the calendar for 2025.

Why not pay a visit to the E-type Forum?

 

You'll find an active community of E-type owners and enthusiasts discussing technical issues, asking for advice, sharing news and chatting about all things E-type.

 

The Forum is kindly hosted by E-Type UK (in conjunction with the Jaguar E-type Club).

Jaguar National Rally Australia

Australian Club member, Bob, reports on the 2024 Jaguar National Rally, held in Tasmania

The Rally Headquarters was in the Wrest Point Casino, Sandy Bay, a short distance south of Hobart. Being located on a point, the Casino has sweeping views of the Derwent River and Mount Wellington/Kunanyi.

The first part of the Rally ran from 12–15 April in Hobart, and the Post Rally Tour (PRT) went across to Strachan, on the west coast of Tasmania, and ran from 16–20 April.

Why buy an E-type?

people-standing-around-jaguar-etypes-parked-in-town-square.jpg

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

 

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.
