Ultimate E-type - The Competition Cars (collectors' edition)

Regular price £ 2,200.00 GBP

This car was fitted with the most powerful XK engine Jaguar ever built.

It was modified by the Jaguar Competition Dept with Malcolm Sayer’s very beautiful Low Drag bodywork. Today, it is worth several million pounds.

Just 25 very special copies are expertly hand-bound by Ludlow Bookbinders.

Complete with craftsman-made box, they are priced at £2,200 each. Of that, £1,000 will go to the Henry Surtees Foundation.

The Lightweight Es are the ultimate E-types, and this is the ultimate book on these charismatic cars.  This is the full story of the competition E-types that took on the might of the Ferrari and often beat the legendary GTOs and the AC Cobras.

Each book has its own unique number stamped out on original Lightweight E-type metal in the same format as an E-type body tag.
