Project Shawnee Commission Bespoke Jaguar E-Type by ECD Auto Design

KISSIMMEE, Fla., June 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECD Auto Design, is thrilled to announce the launch of the Shawnee Commission, a stunning ECD bespoke classic Jaguar E-Type. This one-of-a-kind creation is a meticulously restored and customized Jaguar E-Type Series III Coupe, combining timeless elegance with modern performance, luxury, and unique features. Please find high-resolution images and video HERE.

Project Shawnee Commission showcases ECD Auto Design’s commitment to craftsmanship, innovation, and attention to detail. Every aspect of this classic Jaguar E-Type has been thoughtfully reimagined to provide an unparalleled driving experience while honoring the iconic design of the original vehicle.

Project Shawnee Commission is a perfect example of ECD Auto Design expertly weaving classic styling with state-of-the-art innovation. The exterior retains the beautiful curves and clean lines that have made the Jaguar E-Type an automotive icon. The vehicle is painted in Porsche Graphite Blue and is beautifully accented with chrome touches featured prominently on the bumpers, mirrors, light housing, door handles, wipers, grill, and trim.

Detailing of the chrome accents are carried into the cabin from the three spokes of the wooden Heritage Momo steering wheel to the various interior trims throughout. Inside Project Shawnee Commission, the interior is reserved for the lap of luxury and elegance. That luxurious essence is best showcased by the beautiful tan and brown Spinneybeck leather seats throughout with distinct deep small weave stitch patterns in the heated front seats.

The vehicle’s cargo area is truly unique featuring flooring of wide planks of French Oak wood. Details down to the stitching in the seats and positioning of controls have been designed to provide the utmost comfort and luxury.

Beyond its beautiful exterior and interior, performance is not overlooked. Project Shawnee Commission is powered by a GM LT1 455 HP engine, coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission delivering an optimal balance of power and durability under the hood and through the driveline. An upgraded Fosseway high performance brake system furthers the performance experience.

Project Shawnee Commission is the result of a seamless collaboration between ECD Auto Design's craftsmen and the client. With a focus on providing an excellent client journey, everything in this project was built to specification, meaning that this Jaguar E-Type Coupe is truly a one-of-a-kind, personalized creation. This bespoke process means that no two ECD Auto Design vehicles will be the same, reflecting the company's commitment to detail and quality.
