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.

Horsepower may steal a lot of headlines, but the always-more-complex torque figure is often a critical one for both the workingman and the motoring playboy. The measure of rotational force represents the twist that can liquefy one's tires or haul one's horse trailer. Good stuff.
It follows then, that as with the horsepower-to-weight list that we assembled for you a few months ago, a list of cars that offer the most pound-feet with the fewest pounds to carry, is an interesting one to break down. Sure, there's a big difference in how the torque is applied from a turbocharged six-cylinder in a Swedish luxury sedan and a massive heavy-duty truck's turbo-diesel. But being the car/stat geeks that we are, we think it's kinda neat that those two vehicles rank near each other where torque and weight intersect.
As with the horsepower list, we've given you figures as pounds per every one pound-foot. Again broken down into broad price categories, we've got a mixed bag of 2014 and 2015 models here, too. Every effort has been made to select the most up-to-date prices and specs, and we've also to omitted some '14 cars that won't be re-upped after the ongoing yearly changeover.
Jaguar's new F-Type is a pretty potent little pouncer. And while we do love a good roadster, many of us at Autoblog are perhaps more excited about the upcoming hardtop version of Jag's stylish new entry-level sports car. Why? Because even here in heavily camouflaged prototype form, the thing looks really, really good - the sleek roofline blending rather nicely into the F-Type's shapely rump, allowing for better distinction of its pronounced hips over the rear wheel wells.
Mechanically speaking, the F-Type Coupe should be identical to its droptop sibling. That means the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8 engine lineup should carry over unchanged, though we've heard rumors about a four-cylinder application as well. There's also talk of hotter R, R-S or R-S GT models coming down the pipeline, and based on what we've experienced in things like the XKR-S, we certainly can't deny the allure of such a model.
It's unclear exactly when Jaguar will show the production F-Type Coupe (at the Frankfurt Motor Show, perhaps?), but the car is expected to go on sale sometime in 2014. Check it out in our latest spy gallery, above.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced that a new division of the British manufacturer will be dedicated to "bespoke commissions," as well as heritage products and apparel. Oh, and the new Special Operations division will also be behind JLR's halo cars from now on.
It's that last one that is the most tantalizing, as the last real halo product to see production from Jaguar was the XJ220. The Range Rover, meanwhile, has always had its own kind of halo reputation, although the Land Rover brand itself has never really gotten into the game with a dedicated model.
According to JLR, the new halo models will focus on ultra-high performance and luxury with a limited run of vehicles. The bespoke models, meanwhile, will give the wealthiest customers full sway over how vehicles are outfitted, with unique paints, trims and other accessories. The new SpecOps division will be run by John Edwards.
