more aerodynamically efficient than a ferrari 250GTO
malcolm sayer was a genius… just memorize that
interior with original toggle switches…. no gold, no fancy wood, nor excess leather with dollar bill signs…. drool!
in a world of shit cars, here is a brand new car with airbag, ABS breaking, AC and all the stupid necessary things we all want and need, but cant find in a vintage car, packaged in a beautifully proportioned body of a legend. this car is individually built for each client to his or her specs so the sky is the limit.
a little background on the low drag GT: the jaguar low drag GT is based on the prototype made from the original e-type by jaguar back in the 60’s. efforts to create an optimized racing e-type, with reduced weight and a further enhanced aerodynamic profile for the factory-resulted in the low drag version as the company began to plan the 1962 racing season. in conjunction with the development of the low drag, jaguar were also putting focus into the all-aluminum ‘lightweight’’ e-type, with uprated engines, suspension and brakes. 12 of these all-aluminum were developed, and they soon became the focus of the racing development at jaguar. this left the beautiful low drag prototype in the shade, and although development continued as an ‘after hours’ project, much more focus went into the eventual 12 lightweight jags. malcolm sayer who tested the low drag in a wind tunnel in those after hours, discovered that the shape was more aerodynamically efficient than a ferrari 250GTO (10%) and the standard e-type (20%) but the low drag was left behind as the lightweight jags took the ascendant position and redyed for the 1962 race. it took several decades for the low drag to reemerge from the archives but now you can have a custom one made just for you! now what a treat that would be? the cost, pending your requirements of course, would start around £650,000 i wont mention what that is in dollars. by uh
