1967 Jaguar E-Type Le Mans By Design Velke Is A Masterpiece

This Jag raises the bar!


Jaguar is one of those automotive companies whose reputation for building luxury cars and racers surpasses nearly every other brand on the European market. These sleek beasts are terrifying with an excellent black paint job and low-profile racing tires, but sometimes you need something more flamboyant. That's exactly where this car comes in as it sports a paint job you might only expect from a particular Italian brand with a similar affection for the color red. With nearly 55 years of racing pedigree under its belt, this is a stunning sight to behold on any street, track, or car show. The car could be yours with a simple click of a button, but first, let's talk about some of its more prominent attributes.

Coating the exterior of this fantastic car is a bright red paint contrasted by white racing decals, which reflect the heritage of this performance-oriented vehicle. This was done to clearly see this sleek icon as it barrelled down straits and corners on tracks like Le Mans. But, of course, that is quite clear from the name, which should bring forth thoughts of road racing and grand touring as this car was the top of the line in its day for just that. That means that the exterior is designed to catch attention and the interior as the brown leather contrasts with the bare-metal dash, creating a simple yet luxurious driving experience.

The most essential part of any car is typically the engine which is exactly why this car is sporting a 4.2-liter inline-six engine capable of making a substantial amount of power. This car made around 300 horsepower, which was mind-blowing for the time. All of that power is transferred through a four-speed manual transmission which is more than fast enough for any skilled driver to lead a race. This is the perfect car for any European automotive enthusiast who wants a bit more speed than a collector may be used to.
