Please forgive me Reg hide the devil himself forced me to post it..

So Classic Car fans, what are your thoughts on the news that Jaguar are going to put the new electric E-type into production and it will be available in 2020.
An icon reborn?










I guess it was one of these at that ASBO wedding earlier in the year in Windsor goodnight

Will it be street legal, though?

I can't imagine it getting flying colours in the NCAP tests but who knows.

Limited appeal I suspect.

It's going to be very interesting where they position this in the market - will they be rubbing shoulders with the Kalashnikov I wonder stirpot.

I'll bet a load of them go stateside if they get them road legal.

Jaguar are getting around the new car rules by using old cars and restoring them and at the same time converting to electric. As was the blue wedding car which a lot of us saw at the revival.

Thanks for that I hadn't realised, I missed it at Revival. This must be upsetting a lot of folk that the straight sixes are being removed I would have thought.

I can see a lot of these on the boulevards in California though.

The original E type bodywork generated lift at speed, which explains why quite a number were written off fairly early on.

Iconic, well the shape may be, but it needs that 6 cylnder XK engine.

Practical? well perhaps as much as a Morgan.

Sensible, well not in my opinion.
