At regular intervals we report on the Restomod vehicles from the team at ECD Automotive Design. The restoration and modification projects, often based on Land Rover vehicles, especially based on the classic Defender, are known and highly valued worldwide. And since the ECD team also moves with the times, it didn't take long before there were a first prototype of the British off-roader with a heart transplant based on a Tesla powertrain. And with the project that has now been published, they have ventured into a different vehicle. Namely, the Florida-based company has previewed several restored and modified Jaguar E-Type vehicles (were already announced in June 2022) released. And like the Defender, ECD also has the E-Type with one Tesla powertrain equipped.

And if you wish, you can do that too Interior be equipped with a variety of options. There is always at least one Nappa leather interior, but depending on the wallet can also be expensive Spinneybeck leather, which can even be artificially aged, can be installed in the classic. And for those (like us) who can't really get used to the topic of electric drives, there is the option of getting the Jaguar E-Type with one classic burner to equip. A 450 hp is possible LT1 V8 engine from GM in combination with a 8-speed transmission from the Chevrolet Corvette. But there is also an alternative Line six-cylinder and even one V12 makeable.

Because such an E-Type restoration/modification project is only from $299.995 available, which of course depends on the options chosen can vary greatly upwards. There is also a certain lack of time. Because according to the ECD, only 10-12 vehicles per year built and nine are currently ordered. Incidentally, the first restored Jaguar E-Type vehicles should be completed by spring 2023 and equipped with electric Tesla motors.
