Luxury Classic Jaguar Hire’s Jaguar E-Type Series 3, ‘Elton’, has now been in our collection for about three years. The car has recently had a full engine overhaul, as well this work we had a carburettor upgrade from the four Strombergs to a quad SU set up which are a superior carburettor. Also whilst the engine work was being carried out we upgraded the radiator and installed a twin cooling fan system for the mighty V12 engine.

Since the work has been completed Elton has been on trips to London covering 460 miles and across to Yorkshire covering another 126 miles. Elton has also toured the Isle of Skye where he covered just under 1200 miles in seven days.

Elton who is a Series 3 2+2 really is an ideal touring car as he has plenty of storage space. He boasts a silky smooth V12, 5.3L engine with 272bhp on tap and provides effortless motoring. He is capable of a top speed of just under 149 mph.

Prior to Elton’s engine overhaul he  has had a complete interior re trim in cream leather with red carpets so suitable for the groom to be as a self drive hire Wedding car.

All Series 3 E-Types came fitted with power-steering which aided immensely in parking situations and certainly gives Elton a more modern feel. 

As a 2+2 Elton has a longer floorpan and higher headroom.

We recommend this Jaguar E-type to the taller classic car enthusiast (Over 6ft) or to people who have not driven a classic before.


“I hired Elton, the 1972, Series 3, etype Jaguar for my 50th Birthday/Silver Wedding Anniversary. Clive was very helpful and accommodating making the booking process very efficient. The car was delivered on time and in immaculate condition. I felt like $1m driving it around the Lake District and turning heads. I would recommend LCJH to anyone and will certainly be returning in the future.” – Steve Morris, Walsall
