Known History

A car Enzo Ferrari called “the most beautiful car ever made”, the Jaguar E-Type is considered by many to be one of the most gorgeous automobiles ever built. It took the automotive world by storm upon its unveiling at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and still continues to turn heads to this day. Underneath its gorgeous, aerodynamic exterior were several state of the art features. Four wheel independent suspension was at all four corners along with four wheel disc brakes that were mounted inward of the axles in the rear. A rack-and-pinion unit provided responsive steering and helped to make the E-type one of the best handling cars of the era. Power was initially provided by the 3.8 Litre straight-six from the XK150S. Producing 265 horsepower, the E-type was capable of more than 150mph. Combined, these features made the E-type one of the most celebrated sports cars ever produced with incredible power, handling, braking and style that rivaled anything else Europe produced. With such timeless appeal and praised appearance, it is no wonder why the Series 1 E-type roadster is one of only a handful of motorcars on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Coveted in its day by the most sporting of drivers, the E-type still remains one of the most sought-after cars in history, especially in Series I Roadster form.
