This poor Jaguar E-Type was found rotting away in a field, seemingly forgotten by the previous owners of the land until the vehicle eventually went up for auction.

Any normal person would assume this relic was too far gone, but what we see in these images is nothing short of incredible.

Over the course of several years, the rusty project E-Type was restored to immaculate, showroom, concourse condition.

The Jaguar E-Type, (Also known as the Jaguar XK-E in North America), is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975.

The E-Type was a revolutionary masterpiece at the time, with a 150 mph (241 km/h) top speed, sprinting from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 7 seconds, complete with a monocoque construction, inboard disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension.

When it was released to the world, it caused an incredible stir and remains to this day as one of the most iconic cars of all time.

Now, let’s just take a moment to witness something beautiful being restored from the dead.
