Vintage Jaguar E-Type got 400 horsepower


A small British firm had based its project an old E-Type from Jaguar of the sample in the 1960s and equipped with its 400-horsepower engine.

The 400-strong restomod Jaguar E-Type was represented by a small British company that is actively taking orders for the creation of such cars.

A car that was built by the company Woodham Mortimer, engaged in the restoration of the machines and preparing them for racing, called the project WM Sport GT.

At first glance, the appearance of the car is fairly typical to classic E-Type, but upon closer inspection reveals some differences. Extended the body, which received chrome-plated finish. Enthusiasts will notice the lack of “riders” on the bumpers. When decorating the chairs used leather and Alcantara. There is also a new surround-steering wheel and custom pedal.


But the biggest changes occur under the hood. WM Sport GT boasts of a 4.7-liter “checked in the race” engine that produces about 400 horses. Torque through a five-speed manual transmission is transmitted to the rear wheels, which, by the way, “shod” in the tires Avon. The car also received a limited slip differential Powerloc.

Restomod has ventilated disc brakes with sectionseven front calipers and four piston calipers in the rear. There is also a fully adjustable shock absorbers and high springs as well as reinforced anti-roll bars to provide a “confident handling” and comfort while riding.

Depending on the chosen specification, WM Sport GT will cost between 330 000 and 350 000 GBP (385 900 – 409 300 dollars).
