More than a regular E-type, it's a Lightweight racing version.

I knew it was a race version (..as I had listed it as Racecar)..but wasn't sure if it was a Lightweight.!

Since it has a license plate is it really a "race car" ? This category was more for F1 and other really "for race" cars

Merry Old England. Not only does it have a car registration system liberal enough to allow people to put a license plate on a car like this in the first place, but there actually are people that take them to the road and risk them being wiped out by a sunday driver in a Focus.

Liberal car registration system? You're kidding, with personalized plates they have to fit a certain coding criteria, you must have a certain amount of numbers and letters, you couldn't have any word you wanted like in America, which is really stupid, a lot of personalized plates in this country are totally meaningless and people still a lot of money for them. As long as there is no other car with the same registration, why shouldn't you able to have anything you like (as long as isn't indecent)?
