JAGUAR Lightweight E-type GREAT CARS 1 SALE
€79,50  €55,00
This Great Cars book outlines in exhaustive detail the history of the most important competition Jaguar E-type. Run by John Coombs with factory support and driven by some of the best racing drivers of the day, this car took part in the E-type’s first motor race and later became the prototype all-aluminium Lightweight E-type.

The car’s post-Coombs racing life is also fully covered, embracing up-and-coming Brian Redman’s exploits with it in 1965 and its modern-day successes at the Goodwood Revival, where it has twice won the TT Celebration race and has been raced by numerous fine drivers, including Dario Franchitti and Emanuele Pirro.

Chapter 7 1st Proofs-12-reduced_renamed_10146In this book expert author Philip Porter covers this famous E-type’s active life in every detail, using a wide variety of source material – including factory documentation – to explore not only the car’s race-by-race performances but also the trials and tribulations of its development and evolution. A fine array of period photographs – every competition appearance is shown – and a gallery of magnificent modern images support the meticulously researched text.

This is the complete record of a most significant racing car and the first in the exciting new Great Cars series – next title is Porsche 917 written by Ian Wagstaff.

Auteur(s)Phillip Porter
Over de auteur(s)Philip Porter is the author of around 30 motoring books. In an action-packed life, he started competing in hillclimbs and sprints while still at school, winning 10 of his 12 events in 1970 in his full-race Sprite. Bitten by the classic car bug, he bought five Jaguar XKs in 1973 (four of which he still has) and his historic E-types (9600 HP, the oldest E-type which was the development, launch, press car, and 848 CRY, the '61 racer and roadster in the film The Italian Job) in 1976. He began writing articles and books in the mid-'80s. In parallel he began flying hot air balloons and airships competitively (European Airship Championships Silver Medallist), and was the first person ever to fly an airship in Africa. He has twice been Chairman of the Sherlock Holmes Society and in 1997 he and his wife Julie formed the International Jaguar XK Club, the Jaguar E-type Club following in 2004. In 2005, he created Porter Press International, which is now one of the world's leading motoring publishers thanks to the amazing team with which Philip is immensely proud to work.
