By digitally 3D scanning the original E-type and transferring these highly detailed scans into CAD, Jaguar Heritage was able create a virtual model of the whole car in exact dimensions, ensuring perfect panel alignment to within a fraction of a millimetre and producing a complete and true rendition of the iconic car to world-class quality.

This has been achieved using the original factory drawings and designs of the E-type, combined with state-of-the-art new tooling. In fact, you could say that our customers are now able to buy panels even better than the originals.’
