E-Type UK has built a restomod based on the third series of the Jaguar E-Type coupe. Unlike many of today’s projects, this one is not electric, but with a native V12 engine.

The motor of the 1974 production year car got new pistons, and specialists also brought its working volume from the initial 5.3 to 6.1 liters. Instead of a carburetor, an injector was installed, and new throttle valves also appeared. As a result, the performance increased from 264 to 292 hp. The 4-speed manual transmission was replaced by a 5-speed one. The changes also affected the steering, brakes and suspension.

Outside, it’s worth noting the presence of steel bumpers, 16-inch multi-spoke wheels, full LED headlights and lights. Handmade leather was used for the interior decoration, the seats, in turn, are heated, in addition, acoustics with Bluetooth and modern diode illumination of devices appeared here.

The dynamic parameters of the restomod are not disclosed. The original car produced in 1974 accelerated to the first “hundred” in 6.5 seconds and accelerated to a maximum of 241 km / h.

In addition, it was recently noted that the British company Jaguar is developing a competitor to the Tesla Model 3. Thus, after the electric version of the XJ, another electric car should appear that will compete with the American electric car.
