자동차 복원 전문회사 pebble beach에 의해 새롭게 복원된 64년식 재규어 E-type은 영국 자동차 만의 고유한 DNA; 엘레강스하면서도 세련된 디자인을 보여주는 풀 알루미늄 바디로 제작된다. 지금 현대적인 감각으로 보아도 유연한 곡선을 만들어 내는 알루미늄 코어는 차체를 경량화하는 동시에 강성을 유지, 효율적인 퍼포먼스를 완성한다. 이제 복원된 재규어는 단지 달리기 위한 도구가 아닌 가치를 소유하고 즐기는 클래식이 된다.

jaguar has revealed ‘car zero’, the first prototype of its new lightweight E-type at the pebble beach concours d’elegance in california. six rebuilds of the original british sports car will be hand-crafted by skilled workers at jaguar heritage, part of jaguar land rover’s new special operations division. the contemporary two-door will be re-constructed using specifications originating from the last lightweight E-type produced in 1964 and will be built at the original home of the E-type, jaguar’s browns lane plant in coventry, england. the series of vehicles have been introduced as replacements for the ‘missing’ six vehicles from the ‘special GT E-type’ project in february 1963, of which only 12 of 18 were completed.






the core component of the lightweight E-type is its aluminum body. this material replaced the steel of the production E-type, specifically to shed weight – approximately 114 kilograms were saved compared with the original car. despite the enormous advances in technology since the early 1960s, the decision was taken not to incorporate modern materials or fixing methods. according to jaguar, ‘high-strength aluminum alloys and bonded structures would have been invisible, and they would not have been true to the original design.’
