The Great Cars series returns with an in-depth look at the 1963 Lightweight Jaguar E-type, chassis number 49 FXN. This Porter Press series selects individual vehicles that standout in the racing world, and commits to a full biography of them.  This luminary among Jaguar Lightweight E-types made its race debut at the Nurburgring, freshly modified for aerodynamics and with an incredible engine developed by masterminds Dr. Samir Klat and Prof. Harry Watson. Peter Lumsden and Peter Sargent proved its high-speed potential by running third in the GT class at Le Mans the next year, and three months later, it was the best-placed E-type at the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood, as well as fifth in the GT class. 49 FXN’s successes go on, and you’ll see them all in full across nearly 300 period images, many previously unpublished, and plenty of full color studio photography.
