Jaguar is building six brand new 1963 Lightweight E-Types – the missing six Lightweights that were never built from the intended original 18-car series.
The new Lightweights are the missing six vehicles from Jaguar’s Lightweight E-Type project, which originally started in February 1963 with the objective of building 18 ‘Special GT E-Type Cars.’
Only 12 of the aluminum-bodied Lightweight E-Types were eventually built, the last in 1964; the remaining six designated chassis numbers having remained dormant, until now. The new cars will be hand-built in-house by Jaguar’s finest craftsmen. Each car will be constructed to the exact specifications of the original 12 racecars – including the 3.8-litre straight-six engine.
