With 2021 marking the Jaguar E-type’s 60th anniversary, the iconic car has been receiving an influx of interest and attention as of late. In a bid to cater to the most discerning E-type aficionados, the UK’s HELM Motorcars has joined forces with renowned E-type restoration specialist, Chedeen Battick and industry-leading in bespoke leather and upholstery outfit, Bill Amberg Studio to deliver 20 Series 1 E-type continuation cars.
Born out of approximately 3,800 expert man-hours of labor, each car will be one-of-a-kind, with customers being given a myriad of bespoke options, and will see the E-type bestowed with a suite of modern elements such as electronic speed-sensitive power steering, a custom-engineered five-speed gearbox, six-piston alloy front brakes, and adjustable suspension. Built around a steel-reinforced monocoque shell equipped with handmade aluminum doors, HELM’s continuation E-type is powered by a 300hp 3.8L that sings through a hand-crafted and polished aircraft-grade stainless steel exhaust system. The semi-aniline leather and calf-suede interior also gets a Bluetooth stereo system, AC, bespoke instrumentation, LED lighting, a hand-stitched steering wheel, grab handles, and leather toggle switches, hand-crafted aluminum internal panels, and two bespoke weekender bags with matching briefcases.
