The Jaguar E-Type
There are many great new jaguar etypecars, but there is one that is probably the most famous – the E-type. It was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961 and its futuristic design is credited to Malcolm Sayer.
The E-type is a remarkably good value sports car. At the time it was launched, it had a 3.8 litre XK engine which delivered 265bhp at 5500 rpm. Its full synchromesh gearbox made it a very easy car to drive and, at the time, it was much cheaper than a Mercedes or Ferrari.
It was a very quick car too, with top speed of just under 150 mph (240 km/h). It was also easy to maintain.
A lot of thought was put into its styling and it was a highly original design. It is still very appealing today.
The E-Type was available in three different series:
The Jaguar E-Type vs. its Competitors: Which is the Best
This is a 1960’s Jaguar E-Type Roadster which is finished in the stunning Gunmetal Grey colour, with a Cherry Red interior. This is an original Jaguar car in excellent condition, and is a genuine classic from the early days of the E-Type.
It is a very rare hardtop model as well. It is very hard to find a hardtop with all the chrome, and in good condition at that!
It is a very elegant looking car and was the first sports car to use four wheel disc brakes as standard. There were also a number of other changes in the development of this car, including independent rear suspension which became standard on all E-Types.
