Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated. Recreating a factory race car from the 1960s is no simple task—for Jason Len and his 1964 Jaguar E-Type, the challenges were no different. The hours and materials to build something of this magnitude far exceed any dollar amount that could be recouped from the finished car’s sale, but this is irrelevant for Jason. To him, the idea of owning and recreating this car is simply about chasing a dream. He devoted his life to Jaguars, so when it came to deciding whether or not to build the car, there was no other choice that could be made. Beyond its glorious engine notes and inspiring visual presence, this car enjoys something that very few cars are allowed: a furiously fast pilot. After purchasing this car over 30 years ago, this E-type has never looked—or driven—better.
