The E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 L Jaguar V-12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. An automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available options. The V-12 was equipped with four Zenith carburetors. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued, with the Series 3 available only as a convertible and 2+2 coup. Fifty Series 3 E-Types were constructed as end of model commemorative cars. The new longer wheelbase offered significantly more room in all directions. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tires, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V-12. Jaguar cars for the US market were fitted with large projecting rubber bumper over-riders (in 1973 these were on front, in 1974 both front and rear) to meet local 5 mph impact regulations but those on European models were considerably smaller and have been installed on this car. US models also have side indicator repeats on the front wings. Competition to this Jaguar in 1973 included American Motors Javelin, Chevrolets Corvette, Jensens Interceptor III and Mercurys Cougar.
