Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations unveiled the first Lightweight E-Type prototype. It features an aluminum bodyshell with doors, trunklid, hardto and bonnet made from aluminum.

Under the long bonnet, the six-cylinder XK engine mirrors the original 3,868cc power units, with an aluminum block. Both carburettor and fuel injection versions of the engine produce 340hp at 6,500 rpm and 280 lb-ft (380Nm) of torque at 4,500 rpm.

The prototype Lightweight E-Type, dubbed “Car Zero”, will be showcased at the opening reception to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 14.
