Jaguar E-Type – Welcome to the world’s first…

Introducing the world’s first Volcano Orange and Magnetic Grey Jaguar E-Type.

This one-off prototype race car has been built and designed in-house by us here at Bridge Classic Cars.

The colour is based on the McLaren Volcano Orange and is built up of a three-stage finish with a unique Diamondburst Tixo Clearcoat lacquer. The internal area and engine bay is finished in Ford’s Magnetic Grey.

Looking through the oven window as Darren carries out the long awaited but ridiculously exciting race car respray.

Work began on our 1967 Jaguar E-Type race car in January 2017 and now we can finally reveal the first look of our incredible colour combination; Volcano Orange and Magnetic Grey, most likely to be the only Jaguar E-Type in existence using this colour combination. A three colour combination makes up the Volcano Orange, we were first inspired by the colour on a McLaren parked up in a car park at Sandown Racecourse.

One for the future: 1948 Triumph Roadster

Today, we had a visit from Alan and his 1948 Triumph Roadster. The hood is very much in need of some TLC. it really could benefit from a new hood and for the wood and metalwork to be restored whilst the material is off the frame.

Lots of holes in the hood mean it is open to the elements…

When Donna returns from her holidays we’ll sit down and have a look at the options. certainly an exciting project for the future.
