FIRST 2020 COFFEE, CAKES & CLASSIC CARS EVENT AT E-TYPE UK AND DM HISTORICS KICKS OFF WITH SUCCESS.. Lets hope while future ones may be on hold, we get back to sippin coffee and talking cars soon!

Fitted with bespoke set-up individual throttle body fuel injection, the upgraded engine unlocks levels of performance hitherto unseen in a Series 3 E-type. The Ultimate Specification also brings air conditioning, modern cooling, sports suspension and upgraded brakes.

This brave lady is either a stalwart owner or an even more honorable wife or partner of one! Whomever you are lady, well done you!

DM Historics – geared towards the sales and support of historic racing cars – showed off its latest paddock of motorsport heroes. The line-up included a Goodwood-regular Jaguar Mk1, an FIA Morgan Plus 4 Super Sport Low Line previously raced at Le Mans Classic and, the latest addition, a 1957 Hillman Minx.

The businesses also showcased a stunning selection of stock currently for sale. A wonderful 1980 Porsche 911 SC, finished to echo the RS models, sat proudly alongside a fully restored 1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8, greeting guests as they arrived at the workshops. Out front, a wonderful array of E-Types and other classics were on display, later joined by a plethora of visiting motorcars, including Hot Rods and a host of Jaguar rarities, including XK120s and a 600hp XE SV PROJECT 8. 

Specialising in the restoration, upgrading and maintaining of the legendary Jaguar E-Type, E-Type UK was proud to present a number of its latest projects, as well as showing guests the workmanship that goes into each series of the iconic sports car through ‘How To’ workshop demos.

While offering an ideal setting for likeminded petrolheads to meet, this edition of Coffee, Cakes & Classic Cars was taking place in support of the MS Society UK. Across the course of the event over £120 was raised and donated to the Kent branch of the MS Society charity. Showing their support, E-Type UK and DM Historics proudly matched the total raised, bringing the final donation total to nearly £300.

Get up close and personal with the cars!

Founder Marcus Holland commented: “It was an honour to once again welcome hundreds of automotive enthusiasts to our state-of-the-art workshops at North Frith Farm, Kent. Beginning the year by showcasing latest projects and stock from both businesses, surrounded by likeminded petrolheads and raising money for a local charity, was a privilege. Join us at future Coffee, Cakes and Classic Cars event to experience pure automotive passion in the Kent countryside, with dates to be announced soon.”
