1974 Jaguar XKE Series III 4.2 Roadster, The 1974 model year marked the end of an era for Jaguar, as it was the final production year for the E-Type, one of Jaguars most celebrated post-war models. Throughout its transition from the Series I 3.8-liter inline-six to the Series III powered by a 5.3-liter V-12, the E-Type had remained an icon of British engineering and design. Over the E-Types 13 years of production, it had evolved into a comfortable grand tourer, and the V-12 cars were the pinnacle of that evolution. The addition of a V-12 engine over the earlier straight-six meant an increase in available power. Other mechanical changes included a new suspension and wider track. The roadster also adapted the longer wheelbase of the outgoing 2+2 coupe, providing for slightly more interior room. Twelve-cylinder E-Types are praised by enthusiasts for the power and torque provided by their engines, and they are excellent long-distance drivers. This Series III E-Type Roadster is finished in the iconic color of "Pale Primrose" with Cinnamon leather interior, and it represents excellent value for money, as it combines one of the 20th centurys best automotive designs with the sense of occasion only a V-12-powered roadster can provide.
