Remember in my review of Jaguar’s E-Type Lightweight when I said that in 1963 Jaguar planned to produce 18 units? By 1964 however, upper management decided to cut production short after number 12 was done.
Astonishingly, back in 2015, Jaguar decided to complete the 18 car run. In their Browns Lane factory, where the Lightweight was originally produced, the missing 6 cars came to life. Built to original specifications, and utilising the unused chassis numbers, these “new” Lightweights came out of the factory exactly like their older brothers back in 1963 and 1964.
With a price of over £1million, they sold out even before production began. Ain’t it nice to have lots of money?
