The Series 3 E-Type was introduced by Jaguar in March 1971 and was produced for only three and half years, the majority of the cars being made in left hand drive and exported to the US. The car was powered by the all new glorious 5.3 litre V12 which would eventually end up powering the XJS. Producing 272bhp and 304lbs of torque the engine combined with a longer wheelbase helped evolve the E-type from pure sports car into a long distance grand tourer. Even so it was still capable of 0-60 in 6.4 seconds.
