This is an alloy bodied
tribute to the world famous Low Drag
Coupe created by the Jaguar factory when
they modified Peter Lindner's 1963
Lightweight E Type roadster (chassis #
S850662). Malcolm Sayer designed the
bodywork with improved aerodynamics,
hoping to push Lindner towards the
winner's circle at Le Mans in the spring
of 1964. Unfortunately, the car suffered
mechanical problems which ultimately led
to it being withdrawn from the race.
Tragically, just a few months later,
Peter Lindner lost his life when he
crashed his Low Drag Coupe while racing
in Monlhery, France.
In terms of appearance, the
Team CJ Lightweight Low Drag Coupe very
closely resembles the original "Lindner"
Low Drag Coupe. Mechanically, it
is designed to feature a 4.7L CJ Stage
Two engine producing 380 HP and 435
ft/lbs of torque, as well as numerous
Team CJ performance and reliability
finished car will be 100% road legal.
The donor car (and titled
identity) of this particular Team CJ
Lightweight Low Drag Coupe is a 1963
Jaguar E Type FHC (887568) that was
built at the Browns Lane factory at
precisely the same time as S850662. The
two cars were completed within days of
each other, both shipping out in May
