Low Drag Lightweight Jaguar E-Type Concept car makes public debut 47 years after it was built

It's not often that a car makes nearly fifty years after it was built, but that's what happened at the recent Cholmondely Pageant of power when the newly-restored, one and only factory-built Low Drag Lightweight Jaguar E-Type of 1964.

It crashed at very high speed testing at Montlhéry and was so badly damaged that it sat for 47 years before a complete restoration involving 7,000 hours of work restoring more than 90 per cent of the original parts to restore its magnificent original state.

Great gallery showing the many moods of the priceless masterpeice.
