Full-Race E-Type

The brief

We were commissioned by a regular customer to build a front-running racing E-Type for  high level Historic Racing utilising all of our experience and knowledge to maximise the potential of the FIA HTP legal car.

Our Process

After in depth discussions, we settled on the “Low-Drag” body shape featuring all aluminium panels on a steel monocoque. A full Works spec, aluminium block, wide angle head engine on three twin-choke Webers was built producing prodigious power and torque figures. Uprated torsion bars, springs and dampers were flitted and brakes, diff, and gearbox built and set-up to perform at the sharp end.

The result

The car has proved to be a superb performer in it’s owners hands, racing in the best european historic events with superb reliability and performance.
