Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

by Paul Strauss

The Jaguar E-Type is certainly one of the most beloved vehicles of all time. Companies like Eagle have created modern day replicas of the car, but they’re basically modern cars that look like classics. In the case of Jason Len, he started out over 30 years ago with a classic 1964 E-Type, and took his time turning it into a true race car. In this video, Petrolicious sat down with Jason to learn about the work he put into build and maintaining the car for racing over the years.

He drives the car in B Production class vintage races, which generally are dominated by V8-powered ‘Vettes. Since the E-Type only has a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine, he’s at a substantial horsepower disadvantage, but outraces other drivers thanks to his car’s precision-tuned suspension and brakes. It doesn’t hurt that Jason is a seriously skilled driver, having raced cars for nearly 40 years.
