You don't have to be a car enthusiast to know that the Jaguar E-type is one of Britain's finest accomplishments when it comes to engineering and design. Despite being released in the 1960s, the Jaguar E-type remains a staple part of Britain's heritage, and continues to remain at the forefront of conversation when 'pioneering automotive legends' comes up as a topic (this is quite often when you're car nerds like us).
However, Jaguar also released a hardcore racing version called the 'Lightweight E-type'. Its remit was simple: outperform the competition on the track and steal the hearts of millions while doing it; not much to ask, is it? Problem is, there are few people who know about the Lightweight E-type these days, so here's five facts that you can share around the dinner table next time you're at the in-laws.
Stratstone are incredibly privileged to own one of the six "missing" Lightweight E-types that were built in 2015. If you want to keep up-to-date with Stratstone's Lightweight Jaguar E-type, then we have created a page where you can do just that.
