Transporting Famous Jaguar E Types

9600HP is the oldest E Type in the world as it is a preproduction prototype model destined for the scrap heap. However when the launch of the E Type came in 1961 at the Geneva motor show Jaguar were short of promotion cars and had to register 9600HP and get it to Geneva pronto.

848 CRY is another famous or perhaps infamous Jaguar E Type as it was one of the star cars in the original film called the Italian Job starring Michael Cane. Unfortunately the car had a sad end being pushed off the side of a mountain by a mafia bulldozer. It lay as a smashed up wreck for over 30 years before being restored in the 1990s.



It is a great privilege to be entrusted with these very special Jaguar E Types as we transported them to and from the Porter Press Motoring Literary & Art Festival. You can almost feel the historic importance of these vehicles.
