Willwood, Coopercraft and Zeus I think all produce alloy front calipers. There are probably others.

My 2C worth is to rebuild your existing calipers. They work well.

When I bought my Series 3 it had standard 3 pot brakes. They were ok, and worked reasonably well, although would suffer from fade on a track day after 4 laps. I had AP Racing 4 pots fitted last year, and they are fabulous. Compared with a pair of Zeus on my old S1, they are streets ahead in performance. AP callipers are readily available from many E-type specialists.

Fosseway performance in Gloucestershire produce 4 and 6 pot callipers and uprated vented rotors along with other performance upgrades for S3.

I have just fitted their callipers and uprated vented discs on my Rover P6 V8 which I use for classic car rallying.
