1/5 1964 Jaguar E-Type Lindner Nocker Low Drag Coupe sculpture.
This gorgeous large model was hand built by artist Bruno Colombi over a period of 12-16 months. It has been constructed from various metals with some wood and features a fully detailed cockpit with scale gauges, instruments, switch gear, gear gates, fabric seats and a wood rim steering wheel. It even has the correct number of louvers and rivets on the bodywork, and the light lenses are made from original car lenses. The door handles, wheel spinners, etc are all made by hand from small billets of aluminium. The model was seen by the late Norman Dewis, the famous Jaguar development/test driver, who described it as “absolutely fantastic” and signed the base plate.
The huge model measures about 3 feet long and sits on a black lacquered display base (39.5×18.5″ / 100×47 cm) and weighs approximately 40 lbs / 18kgs. Only one of these E-Type LDC models has been built.
This 1964 Le Mans model will make a fantastic centerpiece to a Jaguar enthusiasts collection! (K5.22U)
