Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Coupe by by Amalgam Collection (1:8 scale)

Amalgam Collection has painstakingly recreated the Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster in an 1:8 scale model. It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.



A fine 1:8 large-scale collector’s model of the Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 Roadster. This model has been hand-crafted utilising our own CAD data created by scanning an original car in every detail. The resulting prototype has undergone strict scrutiny by Jaguar to ensure complete accuracy.

Originally the E-type was available either as an open two-seater, or as a fastback fixed-head coupé. Both cars shared the same basic structure, a monocoque with a front subframe, and were powered by a 3.8-litre version of the proven Jaguar XK engine, developing 265bhp (gross). Four-wheel disc brakes were fitted, and for the first time Jaguar used the sophisticated independent rear suspension, developed by Bob Knight.

The E-type’s looks were sensational, and it quickly became a symbol of the 1960s. Thanks to its unbeatable combination of price and performance, offering a top speed of close to 150mph (241km/h) at little more than £2000, it became an instant success, particularly in the vital American market. The E-type attracted many celebrity and VIP owners, from the world of motor racing and show business, as well as Royalty.
