In 1961 Jaguar introduced the E-Type to the world at the Geneva Motor Show and sixty years on, the E-Type has become the British Classic in the hearts and minds of car lovers and the British public in general. How do you set about making something great, even better? As far as suspension is concerned, Koni believes it has the answer in its Classic Range of shock absorbers.
Koni introduced their famous ‘Special D’ dampers for the E-Type back in the mid-sixties to give an improvement in overall road handling and reduce body roll. While the basic damper technology remains similar, the dampers have been refined and improved over the years and, with the latest internal configuration, these are now available in Koni’s Classic dampers range.
Performance Parts RFT offers Koni Classic dampers for all versions of the E-Type; these are painted in Classic gloss black and sport the Classic Koni “wing logo” to match the style of the car. The Koni units are adjustable, providing the option to keep original comfort levels by fitting the dampers at the minimum position, or if the driver is intent on a sportier driving style and ride, a half turn, or a full turn will achieve this.
