The World’s Fastest E-Type Jaguar is up for sale

Delivering 750bhp, a top speed of over 180mph and a 0-150mph in under 8 seconds! ‘The World’s Fastest E-Type Jaguar’ (aka ‘The Beast’) dominated its class of racing throughout the ‘90s. Now fully restored it is available for sale via Hampson Auctions.

Conceived by Fred Cliffe back in 1977, the V12 roadster was subsequently developed over 13 years by Rob Beere Racing on behalf of Malcolm Hamilton, in whose hands it secured no less than 52 outright victories and 87 podium finishes. 

The car’s run of success ended in an accident at Oulton Park in 2001. The Jaguar was then disassembled and stored before being rebuilt to the equivalent specification in which it last competed: A 1971 V-12 E-Type centre tub with TWR Group C specification engine and running gear.
