Jaguar Classic honours E-type’s earliest race wins
with seven restored pairs, inspired by the victorious
The winning Indigo Blue ‘ECD 400’ was driven by Graham Hill and the Pearl Grey ‘BUY 1’ example was
driven by Roy Salvadori, placing third. Salvadori then went on to win at Crystal Palace in ‘BUY 1’ on 21 May.
Between 1961 and 1964, E-type achieved 24 podium finishes.
Today, our seven exclusive ZP Collection pairs consist of one Oulton Blue drophead coupe informed by the original ‘ECD 400’, and a Crystal Grey fixed-head coupe echoing ‘BUY 1’.
Bespoke features include commemorative badging, hand trimmed Bridge of Weir leather interiors and aluminium consoles engraved by artist Johnny “King Nerd” Dowell.
The Oulton Blue drophead pays homage to Graham Hill’s race-winning car with an engraved silhouette of the Oulton Park circuit and his quote “In a race my car becomes part of me, and I become part of it”.
Inside the Crystal Grey fixed-head, an engraved silhouette of the Crystal Palace track sits alongside Roy Salvadori’s nickname “King of the Airfields”.
Both cars feature one half of a laurel wreath signifying their victories.
2,000 HOURS OF CRAFT
Additional early E-type characteristics include a beech wood steering wheel, welded bonnet louvres and
external bonnet latches with a lockable key.
HIGHLY PRIZED HEADPIECES
Complementing each car’s bespoke beauty is an Everoak helmet inspired by the Hill and Salvadori
originals. These rarefied race pieces are created by Bill Vero, who has manufactured helmets for the sport
since the 1950s.
