Luxury Classic Jaguar Hire’s Jaguar E-Type Series 3, ‘Elton’, has now been in our collection for four years now. 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 far a superior carburettor, which do not fall out of tune. Whilst the engine work was being carried out our mechanics upgraded the radiator and installed a twin cooling fan system for the mighty V12 engine.
One of Elton’s self drive hires in 2017 was buy a London client, who had a seven day hire. (Please enquire about our 7 day special hire rate.) As a great car for touring our client chose Elton to be the car to drive a tour which was on his bucket list. Our client wanted to tour the famous North Coast 500 Route. He drove from Luxury Classic Jaguar Hires Headquarters up to Inverness, Scotland where he started the famous NC500 road. On completing the route he took the scenic route back down to our HQ in Lancashire before returning to London.
As mentioned in the paragraph above Elton our Jaguar E-type Series 3 2+2 really is an ideal touring car, it has plenty of storage space. Elton 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. Depending on how driven / traffic it will return 13-17 mpg depending on how it is driven.
Prior to Elton’s engine overhaul he had a complete interior re trim in cream leather with red carpets so suitable for the groom to be as a self drive hire luxury Wedding car. Elton is also popular as self drive experience from the Bride to be to the Groom to be. Elton is a available to hire in blocks of 24 hours or for a 6 hour hire which is enough for a wedding car hire, anniversary present, milestone birthday gift. Valentines present, Christmas present or as a try before you buy if you are thinking of buying a Series 3 E-type Jaguar.
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.”
