You can dumb down the model and remove features, you can make the paint blobby & thick, but an E-type is always beautiful. This is a Whizz-Wheels rehash on the 1968 No 335 Jag. The exhausts are plastic, not copper, the doors do not open, but it is still very good. There are two versions, one is the old 4.2 litre straight six (in the pictures), there is also a V12 5.2 litre shown on the right.

You can see that for the V12 the dombing down continues, we have a plastic base with all the details moulded and we lose the wing mirrors, but because somewhere at the heart of Corgi the pulse was still going, the grille and headlamp detail are right for the V12, the engine is the V12, with four carbs and a huge distributor and the rear numberplate/exhaust detail is right too. Bless them.
