This beautiful blue and white angel is number 10 of only 12 Jaguar E-Type Lightweights ever built. These special production cars were crafted with an aluminum alloy body and hardtop that increased rigidity and decreased weight. They also received Lucas fuel injection and a meaner suspension geometry to take on the like of 12 hours of Sebring and 24 hours of Le Mans.  

These rare cats, known in 1963 as "GTO Killers," were the special balance between heritage, performance, and styling that helped put postwar British auto manufacturing back on the map. In 1963, this particular example won the Australian GT Championship setting a new lap record. Now over 50 years later, the Aussie sets a new world record–at the recent Bonhams auction event in Scottsdale, one very lucky bastard took the keys and a piece of motorsport history home for a cool $7,370,000.
