$38,000 is less than I would have guessed for a recently restored E-type 
sold at Barrett-Jackson auction.  But it's a coupe and not a convertible 
which probably makes a big difference in price now.

I suspect the performance figures are from published reports.  IIRC, my 
'64 with triple SUs was probably about a second faster on the 0-60 time. 
  But that's also from published reports.  Red lining old sports cars 
was something I learned not to do after throwing a fan blade through the 
radiator hose and putting a big dent in the hood of my second Sunbeam 
Alpine.  :-)
