Jaguar Classic has introduced the E-Type ZP Collection

Jaguar Classic has introduced the E-Type ZP Collection – a limited run of 14 restored cars set to be offered in pairs. Each will comprise a drophead coupe and fixed-head coupe inspired by the first E-Types to race as part of Jaguar’s Project ZP in the early 1960s.


COLLECTOR’S E-TYPE PAIRINGS

The famous original ZP vehicles, known by their number plates – ECD 400 and BUY 1 – were campaigned by Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori, finishing first and third at the Oulton Park Trophy for GT Cars in April 1961. Salvadori racked up a win later in the same year at Crystal Palace, paving the way for a further 24 podiums for the racing E-Types between 1961 and 1964.

Jaguar’s modern-day efforts hark back to the period machines. Each is based on the specification of a 1961–1964 Series 1, with a 3.8-litre XK engine producing 265bhp. Owners will also get a period-correct helmet to match each of their restored E-Types, and each gets its own tailored leather storage bag to match the car’s trim and handbook pouch. Pricing has not been officially announced, but you can bet they won’t be cheap. Prospective buyers are invited to contact sales@classic-jaguarlandrover.com.
