1974 Jaguar E-type E-type on 2040-cars
Crossville, Tennessee, United States
Available here is a 1974 Jaguar XKE V-12 roadster. It is an excellent vehicle that drives out as well as it shows.
A very flashy color combination, along with the smooth power of the V-12 and 4-speed transmission, makes this
Jaguar a pleasure to drive. BODY: Bright red exterior paint that is in wonderful condition. The car was purchased
out of the southern California area where I believe the car was painted. Estimated that the car was painted about
15 years ago but that is unknown. The chrome and trim is in excellent condition and shows well. Lights, glass, and
rear window are all in very nice shape. The body is very solid, there is no rust that I am aware of on the car.
Also, no known accidents. With all this being said, this is NOT a 100 point car. The restoration was believed to be
15-20 years ago but is undocumented, therefore I do not know the age of all areas of the car. There is some wear on
the car in certain areas. I've tried to show all those areas in the pictures I have. Several additional pictures
that I can send to you. INTERIOR: Beautiful tan interior in the car. Seats are very nice and do not sag. Carpets
are in good shape and fit well. Gauges all work and the dash is in excellent condition. Very nice convertible top
on the car with a solid and clear plastic window. Car has spare tire, tools, jack,hammer for knock offs.
Engine pulls strong and runs out well. The clutch feels great and
transmission shifts up and down with ease as it should. There is an updated ignition box that was installed by
previous owner. Makes the car very reliable. Headers through the exhaust is solid and sounds wonderful.

Jaguar has a whole raft of new products in the pipeline, from the long-awaited replacement for the XF mid-size sedan and a likely XJ-based replacement for the XK coupe and convertible to the production version of its C-X17 crossover concept. But arguably the most important will be the all-new XE, a compact sports sedan pointed squarely at the BMW 3 Series - a market segment which Jaguar last nipped at with the regrettable X-Type, one which it is now committed to tackling head on.
The British automaker has been trickling out a steady stream of details on its upcoming XE, from the initial announcement in March to the reveal of the disguised prototype in May and most recently the details released just last week of the new Ingenium engine family that will provide its motivation. Now Jaguar has confirmed the XE reveal timeframe and some more salient details of its chassis.
Set to be unveiled in London on September 8, the XE will reach European showrooms in 2015 and our shores in 2016. That's when buyers will be able to get their hands on what Jaguar is already characterizing as "a true driver's car; one that redefines the concept of the sports sedan."
The XE may prove to be the most vital new model to Jaguar's expansion. But to date we've only really seen it in top-spec, supercharged XE S form. That ends right here and now, however, as Jaguar releases details, photos and even a brief video clip showing the entire range - including those most customers are bound to buy.
Globally speaking - or at least in its home market - Jaguar will offer the XE with five different engines and in four different trim levels. The new Ingenium engine family includes two diesels and two turbocharged gasoline options along with the top-of-the-line supercharged V6 that will serve as the XE's performance flagship model, at least until a new SVR version comes along. Both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions are on offer, and overseas buyers will also be able to choose between base SE, mid-range Prestige, opulent Portfolio, dynamic R-Sport and range-topping S trim levels.
Of course not every engine is available in each trim level and with either transmission, so instead of 40 combinations we're looking at 22. Once the XE reaches American showrooms, we'll likely be looking at even fewer, as we're not expecting the manual and diesel versions to be offered Stateside. Stay tuned as well for our live impressions from the floor of the Paris Motor Show. But in the meantime you can scope out all the details and UK specifications in the press release below, along with the short video and the gallery of 74 high-resolution images above.
Jaguar turned to Twitter and Facebook to reveal the production form of its coming XE sedan that we'll see for real at the Paris Motor Show. This is the first of a series of show-offs, Jaguar planning to wrap the bodywork in see-through camo that shows off the aluminum monocoque and other internals the company will use to promote the XE over its German rivals. That aluminum structure, which Jaguar calls iQ[Al], will also be used for other Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
Underneath that long bonnet and ahead of that terribly short trunk will come a series of Ingenium engines, the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines in diesel and petrol forms that will come in a variety of power options, and the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that can also be found in the F-Type.
