The first of Ten fully restored Jaguar E-Types direct from Jaguar Classic to be shown in Germany this week.
The Jaguar E-type was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961 and was an instant hit. Its sensational jet aircraft-inspired lines and 150mph performance set a new benchmark for high-performance motoring in the 1960s. It was the most iconic sports car of its generation.
E-type as art
There’s even more on offer for E-type enthusiasts at Techno-Classica Essen, as Jaguar showcases a new range of exclusive Jaguar Bonnet Art: E-type bonnets as an eye-catching wall-mounted ‘canvas’. Solid colours, racing roundels, racing stripes and one-off designs may all be commissioned. Prices start from £8,000.
