1961 Jaguar E-Type
This is a 1/8 scale LEGO model of a 1961 Jaguar E-Type (XKE). It has a 3-speed V-12 engine, steering, independent suspension, doors that open and close (including glovebox) and a "convertible" top. This Jag is one of my dream cars!
About this creation
Here is a 1/8 scale LEGO model of a 1961 Jaguar E-Type (XKE). This car has a working 3-speed V-12 engine (although the V-12 didn't appear until 1971), steering, independent suspension, all doors open and close (including glovebox) and a "convertible" top.




Out of all the LEGO cars I've made over the years, I think this one is my favorite. It's still a work in progress, but very close to completion. I'll update the photos soon.




The green version at the bottom is faked in Photoshop. I just had to see what it would look like in green.




Click here for a rotating version of the Jag AND click here for an "interactive" version at my www.legogh.com website. Email me with any questions, comments, etcetera at jeh@legogh.com.

really great use of the bricks here, i can imagine this was a pretty hard shape to replicate! You've done a great job regardless. Best E-Type on Moc Pages by a long shot :)

Absolutely stunning looking car! And the great thing is that you hardly uses any fancy special parts, just plain bricks;)

I don't know why this has less views then that Halo Warthog MOC. Everyone is so obsessed with that little thing, this creation is about ten times better, plus it looks more like the real Jaquar then the Warthog MOC looks like a real Warthog. Sigh, the real MOC's that deserve the spotlight need to take it back from Halo. Some kid commented on the Warthog saying "FINALLY this is the first GOOD Moc Of The Day in SOOOO LONGGGGG" and "OMG THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVERRRR HOW DID YOU MAKE IT!?! ITS SO COOL!!!". All I saw was a little green car with a gun on the back... (for the people I've undoubtedly angered, I rated the Warthog 5/5 and left a comment, it is a neat MOC but I don't think it deserves the attention it got, especially not over creations like this). Great job man, this is 100% spot on accurate. Let's hope one day you get to drive your dream car, all the way from a dealership to your garage! Keep it up.

Sorry, they dont have a choice for 10 stars = ). This one is beautiful!! You captured the right lines and curves in all angles of that sexy classic. It reminds me of the one Car and Driver's Csaba Csera owned. I mean for Lego bricks, it's just awesome!! I especially like the way the wheels tuck into the fenders. Very excellent job!!!

i saw this long ago in brickshelf. i was instantly impressed by the overall look (not the simplest designed cars) and detail of this car. you have very very well captured the shape of the Jag, and all the details are also pure gold. this is great scale to build lego cars, you can totally make the car look real if you pay attention to it. and you truly have :)

Fantastic! You managed to capture the shape of the hood in brick quite nicely.

Awsome! Simply awsome. The attention to detail just blows me away. It is a rare ocassion when one sees a MOC that is as faithful to the original source material as your E-Type is. This car is by far my favorite model-team scaled vehicle.

Wow, this is amazing. The thing I like about your creations is that they are made using very normal bricks, but still capture the shape of everything perfectly. Great job!

I have to say this is way tight shizzit. I like how the stacked plates and bricks almost create the illusion of curves. I like how you could actually keep the studs uncovered and still create a smooth looking car. But I think that exact same idea kind of hurts some of your other creations. Sometimes you need SNOT, sometimes ya don't.

Looks just like a Jaguar E-Type. Great job and keep up the great work.

*Poke* *roll roll roll* *CRASH!* Ok, I guess the joke is getting old. Anyway, that thing looks exactly like the one I rode in. (And it's red!) I'm really enjoying looking at your stuff.

That's one of my all time favourite dream cars! Great rendition in LEGO. If only you had built it in racing green... (5/5 nevertheless, of course)

Wow! Great MOC! You can't see that it's LEGO when you look at the thumbnails :-) ! Maybe the model would look even better with some trans-white headlights? -Sven

Until I looked close enough to see the bricks, I was skeptical that it was actually made of Lego. Excellent job.
