Jaguar E-type OTS SII – “This car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive. Sir William Lyons”
A car from the days when smoking was still healthy, when television only had one channel and, most importantly, when driving was still real driving, without aids or sensation-enhancing gimmicks! This long yellow feline has its origins in a more exotic country than the Low Countries, the United States. That is why the owner must have opted for an open two-seater in 1970, so this is a series II. The colour has the beautiful name Pale Primrose Yellow. The E-type remains legendary for its looks, technology and driving experience and was therefore transported across the ocean by an enthusiast in 1989 to make further history.
The E-type still has a beautiful original interior with patina. Inside the car, there is a tin plate that says that the car was ‘Best Jaguar In Class’ at the Concours D’Elegance in North America. The handsomest of the class gives you a mighty feeling when you grab the big wooden steering wheel and drive the big nose through the bends. In the side pockets, you can still find traces of tickets from shows and other evidence that the previous owners were guilty of pure enthusiasm. Now that the car has been fully checked motorically and technically, and purrs madly with 3 Webers. Waiting for an owner who is ready to cruise many sunsets with this pale beauty.
Jaguar E-type – Domesticated. Not declawed.
