etype jaguar

When the e-type jaguar  debuted at Geneva in 1961 as a Fixed Head Coupe and Lightweight Roadster it caused quite a sensation, including being hailed by none other than Enzo Ferrari as “the most beautiful car in the world”.

Since then the Jag has earned numerous accolades from enthusiasts, collectors and journalists. It’s an uncompromised cult classic and is arguably one of the most stunning cars ever built, as well as being a highly capable sports car in its own right. Its iconic status is validated by the wide range of continuation and reimagined vehicles like the Eagle Speedster and the E-Type Zero and Lightweight continuations.

Jaguar E-Type: A Timeless Masterpiece in Automotive History

The original 3.8 litre XK engine has always been a favourite amongst sports car fans. It’s a characterful powerplant that gives the E-Type its 1950’s high performance character, particularly when paired to the Moss gearbox. In the hands of a skilled driver who appreciates the way these cars handle, an E-Type will be a truly special experience on the road and on a racetrack alike.

As with all things involving a classic car, the devil is in the detail so before you make any financial commitment to buying an E-Type be sure to have it thoroughly evaluated by a Jaguar specialist who knows these cars inside out. The quality of bodywork and paintwork on an E-Type can be very inconsistent so you need to know what to look for. It’s also worth ensuring your Jaguar specialist can provide you with an externally mounted five-speed manual gearbox if you want to upgrade the standard four speed.
