The Jaguar Lightweight E-Type and a History of the Jaguar E-Type
Jaguar Lightweight E-Type / History of the E-Type
Continuation cars can sometimes be a mixed bag. Whenever a company like Jaguar raids its treasure trove of heritage to deliver an 'all-new' yet historically-linked model like the Jaguar Lightweight E-Type, the response from fans ranges from envious drooling to rueful hand-wringing at the concept of re-animating a long-dead nameplate by way of modern technology.
The Jaguar Lightweight E-Type is far more than just a paean to the past, however, nor is it in any way a ploy to pad the British brand's bottom line. The Lightweight E-Type has been built by Jaguar Heritage under the banner of the automaker's Special Operations division in such a way that it not only ties itself to Jaguar history, but helps to bring that history in to the modern age.
