Mod Infos :

Jaguars have always been a favourite of mine, and I’ve owned a few in the past; from a 1951 MKV to a 1961 MKII, with a couple of others in between. This has been a long process, but it is finally done. I started this project in September 2007 by cutting off the roof. Along the way I’ve done a few mods, and in the process achieved enough skills (I think) to do this car justice.

The engine and gearbox are from my Jaguar 4.2 MKII, and changes to the Physics are minimal. The car is slightly lighter, with a lower Centre of Gravity. A little bit more camber is enabled on the rear end and the car is lowered a touch.

Credits and thanks go out to:

InsaneDruid: for permission to use the Seats & Tonneau cover from his Austin Healey Roadster.
DucFreak: for the use of his Jag sounds which I modified for the Healey 100s.
YTANGUY: for the use of his Aero Screen from the Cobra on the #44 & #271 cars.
And of course 10Tacle & SimBin: for this great game.

Thanks to my Beta testers : Dietmario & CX650

Includes 5 wheel styles, including the Alloys by the brace from the 4.2 MKII.
6 Chassis styles (not including the cut down screen racers) in LHD & RHD (See the included Genstring txt).
Wet weather tyres (make sure you have Autoselect off or you will be on wets by default).

The mod includes 10 Teams ; five of which are real liveries

The real liveries are :

#5 Bob Jane: Famous Aussie Racer and Jaguar campaigner from the 60’s
#7 Ron Rundell (Historic Racer used in Regularity events)
#41 Matthew Critchley (Historic Racer used in Regularity events)
#44 Bob Tullius (The real car is actually a V12 from the 70’s)
#271 Wally Barnitz: A member of the SCCA in the 60’s who started racing this Jag in street trim at Virginia International Raceway.

I hope you enjoy this car. It is very driftable in the right circumstances, but the back end will break away if you’re not careful.

Car Infos from Wiki :

The Jaguar E-Type, or the Jaguar XK-E for the North American market, is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-Type’s 150 mph (241 km/h) top speed, sub-7-second 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes. The E-Type was based on Jaguar’s D-Type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years beginning 1955, and employed what was, for the early 1960s, a novel racing design principle, with a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolted directly to the body tub. No ladderfame chassis, as was common at the time, was needed and as such the first cars weighed only 1315kg (2900lb).

On its release in March 1961 Enzo Ferrari called it “the most beautiful car ever made”. In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the world’s “100 most beautiful cars” of all time. Outside automotive circles, the E-type received prominent placement in Diabolik comic series, Austin Powers films and the television series Mad Men.
