Jaguar Lightweight E-Type introduced to Southern California traffic

A staple vehicle at Irvine, California's Cars and Coffee, this Jaguar Lightweight E-Type was heading north on Interstate 5 when it was involved in an accident. Cited in the article as a "1968 Jaguar," this car is either a Lightweight E-Type replica or the article has the year wrong. Regardless, it's a beautiful machine, and you can see it in its pre-smashed state on The Car Lounge.

Witnesses report that the Jag lost a rear wheel, which led to a chain reaction accident involving a Honda Civic, Toyota Yaris and a semi-truck. Drivers and passengers in the Civic and Yaris were taken to UCI Medical Center, while the driver of the Jaguar and the big rig were unhurt. Well... the driver of this Jaguar wasn't physically hurt.
