Antique Jaguar E-Type Gets 400 Horsepower

March 23, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A small British company took the old Jaguar of the 1960s as the basis for its project and equipped it with a 400-horsepower engine.

The 400-strong restoode Jaguar E-Type was introduced by a small British company, which is actively taking orders to create such a car.

 The car, which was built by Woodham Mortimer, a company involved in the restoration of cars and preparing them for racing, called its project WM Sport GT.

At first glance, the appearance of the machine is quite typical of the classic E-Type, however, a closer look reveals some differences. The body was expanded, which received a chrome finish. Enthusiasts will notice the lack of riders on the bumpers. When decorating chairs used leather and Alcantara. There is also a new volumetric steering wheel and custom-made pedals.

 But the biggest changes are happening under the hood. WM Sport GT boasts a 4.7-liter “race-proven” engine that produces about 400 horses. The torque is transmitted through the five-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels, which, by the way, are “shod” in Avon tires. The machine also received a Powerloc limited slip differential.

Restomod has ventilated disc brakes with six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear. There are also fully adjustable shock absorbers and inflated springs, as well as reinforced anti-roll bars to provide “confident handling” and ride comfort.

 Depending on the specification you choose, the WM Sport GT will cost between 330,000 and 350,000 pounds
