Ready to go: ’63 Jaguar XKE Roadster
Some sports cars lose something when translated into a race car. They look muscular but they don’t look as handsome. Not all cars but some. You have to try hard to screw up the lines of an E-Type. Today’s featured Jaguar, has managed to stay fabulous. It is an immaculately prepared racer campaigned by Brian Donovan as part of JCNA’s Vintage Racing Team from ’03 to ’05. Donovan is so well-known in the Jaguar world that one can be assured this is the real deal. The race engine has 5 races under its belt and the transmission only two. How long will they last will be up to the next owner. The Jaguar has all of the right bits including a factory hard top and fiberglass bonnet. The interior is typical vintage race car and thankfully it retains the original dash. Jaguar OTS Roadsters are just on fire at auctions. $150,000 to $250,000 doesn’t raise eyebrows anymore and some say E-types are still undervalued. The asking price for a thoroughly prepared C-Prod racer is $115,000. We are okay with that. Click here for the listing.
