1965 Jaguar E-Type Semi-Lightweight Roadster

Sir Paul Vestey was a well-heeled privateer racer, having a raving stable that included the Ferrari 275GTB/C, 250LM, and a racing-spec Jaguar E-Type. Having gotten everything out of the E-Type he could, Sir Vestey got a blank E-Type chassis from the Jaguar factory — something only the very well connected could do. The E-Type was wrapped in the same aluminum bodywork used for the factory racers and fitted with a 3.8-liter D-Type straight six. The car would go on to have an illustrious racing career, in both current and vintage events up through the early 90s. With lightweight E-Type's getting up to $7.5 million at auction, expect a similar premium for a car with an extensive racing history.
