The Jaguar E-type was presented on the Geneva car show in March 1961. The E-type was almost as big a showstopper as the Citroën DS in the 1950s. Even Enzo Ferrari was impressed and said that the Jaguar E-type was the most beautiful car in the world. This early series 1 coupé model is the most sought-after E-type of the series because of the magnificent body shape, roof line and details. Details like the covered head lamps (which were deleted on the series 1.5) and the gorgeous tail lamps (which were deleted on the series 2). This fantastic Jaguar E-type is in an exceptionally good and super original condition! The car was never restored, only repainted in the past. Technically and mechanically the car was beautifully maintained. In recent years, the engine was overhauled, the gearbox checked and serviced, and the rear suspension rebuilt. The car is fitted with 15-inch chrome wire wheels show with 205/75 Goodyear tyres and a period correct Blaupunkt Essen radio with FM. This Jaguar drives, handles and sounds perfectly; a fantastic driver car and a true head-turner!
