Description

We are delighted to offer for sale this exceptional 1961 Pre-Production Jaguar E-type Competition Roadster with its original registration YRP999.

This is one of the first 20 Jaguar E-types produced and was a competition car from the start. YRP999’s ownership history is all documented (see the history images with more detail below) and correct as is its 1970ies race history.  

This well known FIA semi-lighweight E-type racer has always been maintained with no expense spared and is sold in race-ready condition with fresh paint. The installed engine is a wide-angle steel block engine running on Weber carburettors with low hours. The car has been fully gone through and is ready for the 2019 race season. It is running with a replacement aluminium bonnet but the original and unique looking bonnet comes separate with the car as does the original hardtop. Other spares are 2 sets of wheels and running spares. Last but not least, there is also a Crosswaith & Gardiner wide-angle alu block race engine available at additional cost.

YRP999 comes with current FIA HTP papers valid until 31/12/2025.  

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a genuine, “as early as you can get” Jaguar E-type FIA Semi-lightweight competition Roadster with excellence provenance and a multiple Goodwood TT participant!
