A YEAR IN REVIEW
e’re fast approaching our 5th anniversary as owners of E-Type UK and while we have loved every second of the
journey 2020 has been the most challenging time yet.
The year has demonstrated the resilience of the classic car market and surprisingly we have had our best ever sales year.
We would like to thank all of the buyers and sellers who have trusted us and we now believe E-Type UK is the single
largest reseller of E-Types in the UK.
We have remained safely open throughout and used the time to develop our businesses by evolving our bespoke Jaguar
E-Type, investing in a state-of-the-art preparation booth and installing lifts to increase storage and sales capacity.
We know the pandemic is on-going and we continue to prioritise the safety and well-being of our staff. It is thanks to their
dedication that we have been able to support you, our valued customers. Once again, we thank you for your patience and
support. Please keep safe, enjoy the festive break and we look forward to welcoming you again in 2021.

DEVELOPING OUR FACILITIES
no filler on us
We decided to supplement our new
showroom room by installing a, first
of its kind, dust extraction booth.
Finished with high intensity LED
lighting, the booth should further reenforce
our reputation as one of
the best bodyshop facilities in the
Showing off your assets
2020 was the first full year for
our new showroom. Feedback has
been unanimously positive and we
have had our best sales year yet
with many prized possessions being
matched with happy custodians. If
you’re thinking about selling your car
there can’t be many better places to
show off your pride and joy.
Every year since owning the business
we have tried to manage our space
better. In 2017 we took the plunge
and added an additional 5,000 sq/
ft, a mere 3 years later we again
ran out of space and decided to
install lifts to increase storage
capacity by 20% in order to offer
more customers the opportunity to
place their cars with us.
OUR RESTORATION PHILOSOPHY
HE GENEVA PRINCIPLE
Has a car ever been as synonymous with a location as the Jaguar
E-type is with Geneva?
Turning 60 in 2021 and still regarded as the best-looking car ever
built, not to mention its era defining mechanicals.
The well documented overnight dash from Coventry to Geneva we
believe embodies everything the E-Type was and should be,
exquisite finish both internally and externally and of course reliable
E-Type UK is located 590 miles from Geneva, and we feel there
is no better way to test our workmanship than to drive the cars no
less than 590 miles prior to handing them over.
We call this meticulous approach to testing the quality of our work
‘The Geneva Principle’ and it underlines our commitment to quality.
UNLEASHING POTENTIAL | ETUK’S BESPOKE V12
Since our E-Type UK V12 Prototype car launched in 2018 interest and commissions have exceeded
our expectations with orders from Europe to Asia and further afield. However, despite demand
we intend to maintain this car as a limited run offer but do contact us if you want to discuss
commissioning one of these bespoke builds.

While COVID19 has thrown a huge shadow over 2020 for a few brief time things
returned to some sort of normality and we were able to open the showroom. Both
E-Type UK and DM Historics had surprisingly strong sales years. While we’re
proud of many of the cars we sold this year, the sale of our XK 120 which we
took to Pebble Beach was, for a number of personal reasons, extremely poignant
but we’re happy it has gone to a great home and we’re looking forward to another
busy year in 2021.

GETTING OUR NAME OUT THERE
One thing we’ve learned over the last 5 years is that you really have to work
hard on getting your story out there and we like to think that we work harder
than most at doing that.
We have continued to support the E-Type club and the E-Type Forum but
2020 saw a step up in our marketing efforts and hopefully you will have seen
our adverts in Octane and Magneto.
This year we have broken a number of Instagram milestones with
E-Type UK doubling its following to over 30,000 followers while DM
Historics has grown dramatically to more than 7,000 followers.
In consecutive years we have been recognised by the Historic Motoring
Awards with E-Type UK short-listed for ‘Specialist of the Year’. . Although we
didn’t win just being nominated is a fantastic achievement.
SOME GLOBAL RECOGNITION
Another busy year of E-Type UK and DM Historics reaching wide and far across the globe.

there were opportunities to take to the track and we’re pleased to report our cars performed
faultlessly and even managed to take home some silver wear. 2021 is already shaping
up to be a great season with a number of calendars already announced and we would be
delighted to assist you on your motor sport journey.
