![CDATA[
On its 1961 Geneva Show debut the E-Type caused a sensation, with all the promise of its looks confirmed by independent road test results that not only recorded a 150mph top speed, but also 0-60mph and 0-l00mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively. Fast indeed, and the match of any exotic thoroughbred then available, combined with superb road-holding and remarkable docility. One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar's E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch in March 1961. Here was a sleek and beautiful 150mph car with a competition pedigree that could be bought for just over ú2000; roughly half the cost of a comparable Aston Martin or Ferrari. A direct descendant of the XK120 and competition C and D-Type models that so dominated fifties sports car racing, the E-Type shared its 265bhp 3.8 litre twin-cam straight-six engine with the XK150 'S', mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Beneath the William Lyons/Malcolm Sayer-styled body, available in either closed or roadster form, the steel monocoque chassis sported all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, mounted inboard at the rear.

This wonderful matching numbers example was delivered new to Jaguar Cars New York in August of 1962, later finding its way to Gallery Aaldering of Holland and more recently being repatriated to the UK. Restored in 2018 the car has covered very few miles since. The documentation that accompanies the car includes bills of restoration totalling over ú50,000 from leading suppliers such as the Jaguar Workshop and SNG Barratt. As you would expect, during the process all trim and chromework were replaced, and the car was refinished inside and out. Finished in Bronze Metallic coachwork with a tan leather interior, this is a wonderful looking E-Type that will certainly bring a lot of joy to the new owner.
