Heading to the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court in the United Kingdom, the old-school racer will be joined by a number of other Jaguar, Ferrari, and Aston Martin models from days long gone. XKD 509 features matching numbers everything, starting from the engine and ending with the monocoque’s central section and front subframe.
The aluminum body wears the same paintwork from the 1970s, replacing an American racing livery which used to combine dark blue on white and racing stripes. Powered by a 3.4-liter engine with six cylinders arranged in a line, the car achieved a number of podiums and victories at world-class events.
In addition to the D-Type before you, the 15th example of the E-Type fixed-head coupe will be attending the Concours of Elegance. It’s one of the six E-Type models exhibited at the 1961 Scottish Motor Show, a car that moved into private ownership in 1976.
The E-Type was dismantled at one point, only to be restored over the course of 3,000 hours a few years ago. Classic Motor Cars retained the majority of the original components, but re-painted the vehicle in Pearl Grey for more visual drama.
“This year’s Concours of Elegance is a real occasion for fans not just of Jaguar but of historic British cars in general,” said Andrew Evans, the event’s director. A whole host of icons from McLaren, Lotus, and Rolls-Royce will also be present from September 6th through 8th, and a one-day ticket is priced at £40 per adult.
