Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type.
When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders, and covered with contoured Perspex for a free-flowing design and improved aerodynamics. The car featured 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all-around and a 4-speed manual transmission. The proven XK power plant was carried over from the XK150, and made sure the lithe Jaguar would exceed the 150mph mark.
Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marque clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.
Our stunning E-Type is presented superbly, finished in its original colour scheme of Bentley Grey (a special, one off factory colour) with Black hide. As one would expect of a car in this condition, it has won numerous Concours events at Jaguar owner club meets. Certificates are included in the history file together with multiple invoices of works carried out throughout the years. It is clear this car has been fastidiously maintained throughout its life and is definitely one of the finest used E Type Roadsters offered for sale anywhere today.
This Series 1 car is a genuine low mileage example, having travelled a mere 45,600 miles over the course of its life. It is simply one of the best available and will not disappoint upon final inspection.
