Jaguar E Type S3 V12 2+2 1973 (M) Blue
Launched in 1971 the Series 3 V12 was the last and most luxurious of the E-Type range and with a beautifully muscular form it was wider and longer than its predecessors with a revised suspension and a more spacious cockpit.
Fitted with the new Alloy blocked 5.3-litre V12 Engine producing 272 BHP it went from 0 - 60mph in just 6.3 seconds and had a top speed of 145mph making it the fastest-accelerating E-Type ever.
According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate this lovely example - Chassis No: 1S52007BW was built on the 6th August 1973 and despatched to University Motors of Kingston upon Thames and first registered on the 1st of September 1973.
It is finished in its original colour scheme of Azure Blue with Blue Leather upholstery and Blue carpets, Automatic Transmission, Power Steering, full length 'Webasto' folding Sun Roof, expensive sound system and sitting on its original Chrome Wheels with new Pirelli Tyres.
This 'matching numbers' car has a good history file with invoices for servicing and maintenance dating back to 1982 plus 25 old MOT's showing a gentle accumulation of mileage from 33,374 in 1979 to its current recorded mileage of 62,913 which we believe to be genuine and concurred by an HPi National Mileage Register check.
There are also DVLA copies of all the previous registration documents from 1973 which show the large number of owners and personalised registration plates which the car has had over the years.
This is a pretty original car in our opinion and it has not been subjected to any major restoration work as far as we can tell, although it was completely stripped and repainted in 1991.
Recent work includes a new starter motor, stainless steel exhaust and poly bushed suspension and overall it is in very good condition throughout and lovely to drive.
Upon sale the car will be fully serviced and given a new MOT and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty.
