This lot is a stunning Jaguar E-Type children’s car, which is waiting to be finished with the paintwork and trim of the winning bidder’s choosing. The car can be completed from a set of tried-and-tested combinations, or can even be finished to a completely bespoke ‘paint to sample’ specification - perfect if the desire is to create a miniature version of a full-size E-Type.

The cars pictured in the accompanying photos illustrate the Roadster on offer, shown here in Baby Blue, Bright Red, and Black. The car is built to resemble the Series 1 model, with faired-in covered headlights accented by high-quality polished brass bezels, slim bumpers, and the small oval front grille. It is constructed in the UK by a specialist children’s car manufacturer.

The E-Type ‘Junior’ is a wonderful ‘half scale’ version of one of the most elegant and popular roadsters in the world. It is powered by a 45cc engine, coupled to a centrifugal clutch driving the rear wheels, which can power the car up to a top speed of around 15 mph. Braking is by a single disc with a mechanical piston caliper.

The seller states that the half-scale E-Type is suitable for most children between four and seven years of age. The overall dimensions are approximately 2 metres in length and 0.8 metres in width.

Its chassis is a custom design fabricated in steel and then powder-coated, while the bodywork is composite glass-reinforced plastic. It is equipped with 12-inch steel wheels with pneumatic tyres and ‘Jaguar’ centre caps.

The cabin will be trimmed in the buyer’s choice of genuine leather, with a bench-style seat, and diamond-quilted leather panels either side of the carpet on the floor. Its equipment includes push-button start, as well as a working horn and headlights. The four-spoke steering wheel and pedals are mounted centrally.

This Jaguar E-Type children’s car would make a fun companion model for anyone who already has the real thing in their garage, but is also a charming car to delight any junior classic fan - and it can be personalised with a bespoke number plate choice to suit the buyer.

As specified in the listing above, the photos provided here are for illustration only. The car being offered is a brand-new build, to be completed to the winning bidder’s choice of exterior and interior colours. Following a successful auction, full payment must be made within seven working days, and the seller requires up to six weeks to complete the car to specification before delivery or collection.

Please note: the winning bid on this item is subject to Collecting Cars’ standard buyer's premium of 6%, with a minimum premium of £600 and a maximum premium of £6,000. This is clearly stated in the pop-up bid confirmation window, but please ensure you have factored this in before placing your bid.
