Ok, this is just … cool.

Other than his mistake about the engine configuration (the V-12 did not appear until 1971, and by then the E-type was a very different car) this is VERY well done. Even though he says it is a V-12, the modelling looks very close to the gorgeous-to-behold XK inline 6… though with the cam covers removed. I love the 3-carb intake and hinged bonnet. I’m impressed!

Here is a rotating version.

OK… it looks like he’s corrected his text now. So I’ll forgive his error.

Check it out though:

Note the details: 3 carbs, spark plug feed down the center of the cam valley, heater box & fan, engine frames, battery, suspension, etc. Very nice!

  1. Pretty great…I love the kooks who do this sort of stuff. Like the guy who builds a boat in their backyard or spends 15 years building a perfect Ferrari replica. The world would be a much nicer place if everyone could focus on something harmless…
