#2 E Type remake

Post by Larry Wade » Wed Feb 23, 2011 3:30 am

I have to admit that it's pretty cool. I'd like to see it in person.

Some cars (e.g. the new Merc Gullwing and the Porsche Carrera GT) are much nicer in person than in the photographs. This one has the feeling that it might also be better in person.

Cheers,
Larry

More on the Growler. Looks like you'll be able to buy one for... oooo.... little more than the cost of a garage-full of every E-type you've ever wanted to own...

I'm not sure....those giant wires don't do it for me. And the front looks like one of those 3 eyed fish from The Simpsons....an E type that has driven too close to nuclear waste.

Nope, I'll stick to the original!

expect to pay nearly $700,000 if they make a series run, and closer to $1.4 million if they only make a few.

Two for the price of one, just like asda :lol:

For me - utterly, utterly pointless. Sooo many better ways to spend that kind of money. You could build a brand new real e-type for a lot less. I can just imagine if this had been launched by Jaguar how it would be slated by the media, just as the new S-type was, for being retro.

I agree with Skiday . To my eye it looks like an attempt at drawing a FHC by a not very competent artist . All the lines are there but the proportions are not quite right

WOW! How much work, money and effort has been put into that! (You know, if I had the room, I might put in a bid.....)

I think that it looks rather good from the front....but from the back it looks a bit like a kiddies car...the hood is a bit tall!

What a huge amount of work.
