April 2nd 2016; we first announced our plans to import our 1971 Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster from Canada, with a view of restoring her back to the original and deserving factory specification.

Having been used as a drag car, the body had been subjected to numerous modifications including fibreglass doors, boot lid with air ventilation cut in. The rear arches had been cut out to house much larger rims and tyres, traditionally used for the quarter mile strip.

Although not fitted, a Dodge Viper back axle and large Chevy engine also came with the car which suggested these were used at some stage in the modifications.

Fast forward over 3 years, many many hours of hard work and dedication. With a smidgeon of modern day upgrades and a Golden Sands colour change from the original factory specification, here we have the finished piece.

A wonderful example of outstanding British luxury and breathtaking beauty, say hello to our 1971 Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster.
