For months it has only been about the so-called electric mod conversions. And not infrequently based on the Jaguar E-Type. We already electrified the classic from Helmet motorcars or Electrogenic seen and also Jaguar himself has with that E-type Zero presented a completely electrically operated E-type. And now the British restoration professional E-Type UK comes with the new subsidiary Unleashed to. Unleashed is a department that only takes care of restomods. And the first vehicle is a modified one Jaguar E-Type of the third series. But it did NOT lose its V12 engine. On the contrary. The twelve-cylinder was even tuned. Because Unleashed builds the classic (luckily) should not to the Stromer.
Unleashed Jaguar E-Type Series 3!
The V12 engine got one capacity enlargement of 5,3 liters by means of drilled out cylinders and new forged pistons 6,1 liter and there is another one Stainless steel exhaust system with ceramic coating. The results are impressive 400 PS. They harmonize with you relieved flywheel and a new one Five-speed manual.
And so that the engine does not die in heat, there was a new one cooling system and an improved one oil cooler in combination with electrically controlled Fans. And the potent classic has been slowed down with a new one since the renovation Brake system with four-piston calipers and perforated and internally ventilated brake discs. The contact with the road ceases landing gear with adjustable spring-damper units on all four wheels and with regard to the new brake system, the classic chrome-plated ones are growing Wire rims to 16 inches
subtle changes to the body
The look of the body of the E-Type, on the other hand, is hardly changed. The front section is getting a new one Chrome bumper with a new grille and at the rear is also a new one apron to see, these changes are not really noticeable. And that also applies to the new ones Vents in the hood or the LED headlights with daytime running lights.
These are all changes that only the connoisseur will notice immediately. Incidentally, Unleashed's debut is a roadster with a hardtop ex works, which the company completely restored and in over 4.000 working hours black painted. You can choose from an almost infinite range of colors. And the cabin is also manufactured entirely according to customer requirements.
many technical comfort functions in the E-Type
There was the finest, hand-sewn items everywhere in the interior Leather and integrated into the seats since the renovation Heated seats. This is joined by a leather one Three-spoke sports steering wheel, there were new ones Round instruments with LED lighting and everything is set in scene by one Wooden dashboard with black piano lacquer and one Aluminum center console. The technical highlights are not really visible like one Air conditioning, power windows, Central locking system, Start-stop button, a heated windshield and an Radio with Bluetooth hands-free kit and new speakers. Incidentally, such an unleashed vehicle costs well £ 325.000 plus base car. If we get more information, there will of course be an update for this report.
