THE MOTOR LEGENDS E-TYPE
An original series 3 E-type re-engineered to give supercar levels of performance, handling and braking.
We blend the gorgeous styling cues of the series 1 E-type with the practicality of the more spacious series 3 to create the ultimate driving E-type, built around you.
Our bespoke fitting service ensures that the car is supremely comfortable, making it a joy for you to drive. The interior options are unlimited and our bespoke design service ensures you achieve the interior of your dreams.
The typical power train consists of our all new 7.0 litre alloy V8 producing 700BHP. Alternative options include the Jaguar V12 with capacaties up to 10 litres or the classic 6 cylinder XK engine up to 4.7 litres .
This can be mated to either a 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic transmission.
The suspension and braking systems have been completely re-engineered to control the prodigious power now available.
The latest generation coil over spring units now control the redesigned suspension all round with an all new double wishbone rear system. Powerful new brakes and wider, modern tyres combined with a new anti-bias differential ensure sublime handling and braking all kept in harness by ABS and switchable traction control.
This is an E-type you will truly want to drive.
The interior styling is tailored to your bespoke requirements with a choice of any E-type interior styling cue. This is customised where you want and includes modern levels of luxury and comfort with air conditioning, electric windows and seats and remote central locking.
Our state of the art design service allows you to play a crucial role in the design of your dream car from conception to reality.
Based on the more spacious V12 E-type, the bodyshell has undergone major re-engineering to improve space, comfort and safety.
Wider Low Drag Lightweight E-type style rear arches allow the fitting of 285 tyres on our own bespoke 18″ split rim period wire wheels, necessary for the immense power this car has.
The sills have been narrowed and floor lowered to allow the fitting of wider seats with an optimised driving position. All steel in the sills, transmission tunnel and other areas of reinforcement is of thicker aerospace grade steel with twice the tensile strength of mild steel. The sills are also strengthened internally with thick wall aerospace steel tubes tied into the front and rear bulkheads. This car has a dramatically improved torsional and longitudinal rigidity with a much safer passenger cell.
The new rear suspension is a full double wishbone system with a central driveshaft replacing the use of the driveshaft as the top wishbone. Larger uprights allow the fitting of 375mm discs with Alcon competition calipers (twin calipers on front discs) controlled by coil springs with bespoke Penske dampers. Switchable ABS and traction control keeps the 700BHP in check if required.
The interior of the Motor Legends E-type is a sanctuary of luxury. Only the finest materials are used in the design of your choice.
A computer controlled climate control system with powerful dual air-conditioning systems keeps you cool whatever the temperature.
The classic E-type instruments are updated with beautiful back-lit pieces. These are the same design as the originals but complimented by digital displays showing whatever information you need.
