2014 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type review
In 1960, Jaguar made a point of going to make 18 lightweight e-types for the market. From the number, it can be said that the car will be marketed limitedly for just a few enthusiast with big love for the Jaguar cars. But unfortunately, only 12 of those 18 were released to the market as the other half of dozen were never to be made. But now, Jaguar has completed its promise to bring the other six for the car lovers to collect.

The 2014 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type is actually the exact blue print of the 1960s version. The biggest difference between the modern and classic version might be the modern one will use more technology for the safety and comfort department. This can be seen by the appearance of the car that is actually the same with the classic version.

This version of the car will also use the Jaguar’s six XK engine with straight fitting, which is the same engine that was used for the classical version. Despite of the likeness, the modern engine will still be modernized with some updated features to the engine. This is done to make the car more comfortable to be used and also more suitable for the modern condition of roads and traffic. The engine itself will have 3868 cc in the capacity, with the high quality aluminum cylinder and the chain driven cams on the overhead. Jaguar said that it will be able to push over to 300 horsepower at 4500 rpm.

For the interior, the design will use the classic version, as it will be said as the exact blue print from the classic version of the car. The cabin of the car can be said as the privilege to be sit one. The Connolly leather is used to provide the best look and also the comfort at the same time. But the buyers can also get the one with the personalized design on the interior.

Meanwhile, the exterior of the car will not be much different from the older version too. Many parts of the aluminum body will be left unpainted to show the real body of the car. This is to make the greater effect of classical car, especially for the car lovers who are obsessed with the older styles of the car. But even so, there are some color schemes that will be used for the cars, such as Carmine red and silver metallic. The buyers can choose the ones that they want.
