The legendary Jaguar E-Type, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, is considered one of the most iconic cars of all time.
It comes as no surprise then that a company out of Coventry in the UK is rekindling the passion for the icon with a 21st century interpretation of what the E-Type might have looked like had it been developed today.
Behold, the Lyonheart K, a mountain of a task since there is no involvement from Jaguar.
Our goal at Lyonheart Cars is to make the ‘Made In England’ label into a truthful concept, not just a statement. Every part of a Lyonheart car is developed, engineered and hand-built in England.
From the pictures you can see that is seems to take some styling cues from that other British icon, Aston Martin, but more or less remains true to the spirit of the E-Type – the long bonnet with the bulge down the middle that carries on to the roof.
More detail on the features can be found on the website.
With only a limited production run, it comes at a pretty hefty price tag of EUR 495,000 (US$ 655,529) and an 18 month waiting period for delivery.
