To be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at The Silverstone Classic Sale 2019 to be held at The Wing Building, Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, NN12 8TN from July 26, 2019 to July 28, 2019. Guide price: £175000 - £195000.  •    A very special Series 3 marking the end of the model's production in 1974
•    Number six of the 50 final-edition V12 Roadsters, all bar one finished in black
•    One of only 19 manual transmission cars. Matching numbers 
•    Only four former keepers and coming from a significant private collection
•    This, last of the line, Jaguar E-Type is everything the enthusiast could wish forAs production wound down on the beloved XKE Jaguar, it was decided that the last 50 cars should be “Commemorative Edition” examples. These final cars were finished in a distinctive Gloss Black and Cinnamon leather colour combination (with one exception) and came specially equipped with a factory hardtop and a special brass dashboard plaque, bearing the signature of Sir William Lyons, signifying that it was one of the last 50 cars built.  The only choice for buyers to make was the gearbox, 19 of which were automatics and 31 manuals. The chassis number sequence commenced at '2822' and ended with '2872'.
The rare and exclusive E-Type offered here is indeed one of the nineteen manual gearbox, Commemorative Edition cars and is numbered '2827', which suggests that it was the sixth of these special cars off the line. It remained in the careful ownership of Mr Wolf Bringham of Stratford-upon-Avon, England before being purchased by its next owner in 1984. A few years later, in the late 1980's, it was subject to a full restoration by renowned Jaguar specialists XK Engineering at a cost of £40,000. After its restoration, the car was put on display in Scotland’s largest private collection, The Doune Museum, where it remained for approximately eight years, carefully maintained in temperature-controlled storage and seeing only very limited use. During this period, we are informed it was shown at the Scottish National Jaguar Day where it was awarded first prize in the National Concours.
Our vendor, who enjoys a significant private collection, has owned '2827’ since 2010 but, having covered only 1,000 miles in his ten-year ownership, the time has now come for someone else to enjoy the exclusive world of 'Commemorative' ownership. Despite the miserly mileage, the car was maintained to his exacting high standards regardless of cost, as the invoices in the Owner's File testify, indicating an expenditure of around £30,000 during his tenure with marque specialist, Trevor Farrington. 
Offered with the aforementioned history file, a Jaguar 'Passport to Service', and a factory hardtop, this very special, last of the line, E-Type is everything the enthusiast could wish for. Very rarely offered for sale, this is a rare chance to join the exclusive owner's club of these lovely black commemoration cars that celebrate the memory of that most iconic of British Sportscars.
