Jaguar Classic reveals E-type 60 Collection: 60th anniversary tribute to the iconic sports car


 

MAHWAH, N.J., 12th  March, 2021

Jaguar Classic has unveiled its first matched pair of E-type 60 Collection vehicles, and revealed full specification details for the 12 restored and sympathetically uprated 3.8-liter E-type examples built to celebrate 60 years of the iconic sports car.

Six decades after the world debut of the E-type in Geneva, Switzerland on March 15, 1961, the E-type 60 Collection pays tribute to these two legendary vehicles: the Opalescent Gunmetal Grey coupe ”9600 HP,” driven by publicist Bob Berry to make the launch itself, and the British Racing Green roadster “77 RW,” driven by Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis who was told to “drop everything” to get to Geneva the next day.
