In 1986, this car was offered by Chay Blyth as first prize in the Multihull Challenge sailing race organised by Chay Blyth himself. Not thinking for one minute the Multihull Challenge would be won by anyone other than an Englishman – Chay had to eat serious humble pie after the race was won by famous French navigator & explorer Philippe Poupon. Philippe accepted the prize with much satisfaction and took the car to France, where he cherished the vehicle for thirty years (until 2016) – when it was liberated back into the UK.
During Philippe’s tenure, in the mid-late 90s, at 89,000 miles, Philippe had the car mechanically restored. This work was clearly carried out to a very high standard with no expense spared. (Every invoice and French franc spent is detailed in the documented history). Without doubt, the E presents superbly well and continues to turn heads to this very day. Recently installed immobiliser and electronic starter fitted.
This Jaguar has no known faults and as it is a commission sale no warranty is implied or given.
