Fortunately, the aesthetics have not been too modified. The exterior has been subtly retouched to create a sleeker, more sinuous profile, while handcrafted chrome bumpers have been fitted to the front and rear. The custom front grille and badge, meanwhile, have a “floating” effect, which the company says helps modernize the look.

The famous wire wheels of the E-Type have also been increased to 16 inches to be able to mount larger brakes. This gives the Unleashed version a lower and wider stance than the original. On the other hand, the characteristic hood sports elongated grilles to improve engine cooling, while the headlights have been equipped with LEDs.

As for the cabin, signature 60s style meets some contemporary touches. Hand-stitched leather seats and vintage dashboard share the limelight with power windows, central locking, Bluetooth, surround sound and air conditioning.

Naturally, this E-Type is not cheap. Prices start at around 376,000 euros And, as you can imagine, you have to bring your own Jaguar E-Type.
