The 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 stands as an enduring symbol of automotive elegance and performance from the golden era of the British sports car. The Series 2, which debuted in 1968, represented an evolution of the classic design, addressing some of the concerns raised by the earlier models while retaining the car’s inherent grace and power.

Under the hood sits the 4.2-liter inline-six engine which is a refined version of the XK powerplant that had already proven itself in earlier iterations. The Series 2, however, introduced a number of mechanical improvements, including better cooling, upgraded brakes, and redesigned rear suspension, enhancing both handling and reliability.

Externally, the Series 2 retained the E-Type’s unmistakable design and appeal, but with a few notable changes. The iconic glass headlight covers were replaced with uncovered headlights, and a larger front grille was introduced. One of the hallmark features of the E-Type Series 2 was its enhanced usability. The addition of a more user-friendly synchromesh gearbox and improved cooling systems made the car more accessible to a broader range of enthusiasts, addressing some of the criticisms aimed at the earlier models.

The car we have on offer is a matching numbers example and presents very well for it’s age. With its red over tan combination, it makes for an absolute stunning specification and is a proper head turner. The E-Type occupies a special place in the hearts of classic car aficionados. Its combination of beauty, performance, and practical improvements make it a sought-after gem for collectors and enthusiasts alike, preserving the legacy of one of the most iconic sports cars of the 20th century.
