The Motorexpo in Canary Wharf will host the sale of “one of the most desirable E-Types to come to open market in recent years.” The 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight No. 14 is extremely rare and has a very unusual history. Jaguar only made 12 Lightweight E-Type race cars, although as the name suggests, this one is number 14. How so?
It’s because aside from the original 12 cars, Jag made six extra body shells, eight engines and a few gearboxes.
