Jaguar Heritage, part of the car manufacturer’s new Special Operations division, will be producing six new Lightweight E-Type vehicles. Built to the exact specification of the last Lightweight E-Type finished in 1964, the six cars are missing vehicles from the ‘Special GT E-Type’ project, started in February 1963. Of a planned 18 cars, only 12 were eventually build, meaning the remaining six designated chassis numbers have laid dormant ever since. The six new cars will carry these unused identifiers and feature an aluminium body, six-cylinder XK enging and wide angle aluminium cylinder. Head over to the Jaguar site to find out more:
