As you already know, the new British concept is heading to Pebble Beach and it will be made in only six units. Each one of them will be suitable for FIA homologation for historic motorsport purposes. 

On the outside, the 2015 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type is featuring a lot of aluminum. According to Jaguar, the new monocoque architecture is made of aluminum, the engine block is also manufactured from aluminum while the body closures like bonnet, doors and trunk are also fabricated from this light material. 

Inside the cockpit, the 2015 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type comes with Connolly leather seats, a wood steering wheel and aluminum accessories. Under the bonnet, the "old" Lightweight E-Type features a 3.8 liter straight six engine rated at 340 HP and 380 Nm peak of torque. The unit resources are sent to the gravel thanks to a four speed close-ration manual gearbox.
