E.C.D. Automotive Design to Remaster Classic Jaguar E-Types

E.C.D. Automotive Design

The most beautiful sports car in the world is now available rebuilt, restored and reimagined by the luxury automotive company

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (June 21, 2022) – E.C.D. Automotive Design (E.C.D.), the world’s largest Land Rover restoration company internationally renowned for its bespoke luxury builds, today announces a new and exciting addition to its model range: the E.C.D. restored Jaguar E-Type. Now, classic car fanatics and Jaguar Land Rover enthusiasts alike can enjoy the legendary sports car, restored to the highest quality with every detail – from engine type to upholstery color and everything in between – customized just for them. Slated for completion in early 2023, E.C.D.’s first restored Jaguar E-Type is currently in production and will have an electric Tesla drivetrain. A brochure, images and a video teaser are available HERE.

 “The whole foundation of E.C.D. is restoring classic cars that excite us and make us eager for the future of the business,” said E.C.D. Co-Founder Tom Humble. “We always knew we would add more classic cars to our vintage vehicle lineup. What better place to start than with the E-Type? Famously called the most beautiful car in the world by Enzo Ferrari, this retro build exemplifies E.C.D.’s constant evolution in restomods.”  

In less than ten years, E.C.D. has proven itself the foremost leader in classic Defender and Range Rover restorations thanks to its premier client-focused experience, engineering prowess and precise quality control. Each build is completed in-house over 2,200 hours and results in personalized, one-of-one classic vehicles restored with integrity and enhanced with modern technology. To keep pace with skyrocketing demand, the company upgraded to a 100,000-square-foot facility with two production lines. Not only has this allowed E.C.D. to scale production to 100 custom vehicles a year, but it also made the introduction of the restored Jaguar E-Type possible. Some base vehicles will be sourced and exported to the States via E.C.D.’s U.K. logistics facility, others will be sourced within the U.S. depending on the client’s build requirements.

E.C.D. is currently taking orders for its restored Jaguar E-Types. Coupé and convertible options are available. The company expects to complete 10 to 12 restored Jaguar E-Types a year.
