Jaguar’s E-type was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961 and remains one of the most iconic sports cars of all time, the ultimate automotive expression of the celebrated Swinging Sixties. With sleek, aerodynamic styling derived from the Le Mans winning D-types, the new Jaguar could reach a maximum speed of 150 mph, a figure hitherto attainable only by the most expensive exotics from the likes of Ferrari and Aston Martin. Indeed, the E-type was priced well below its contemporary rivals, putting supercar performance and sexy looks within reach of many enthusiasts. The new Jaguar was more than just a beautiful show car, combining the best race car practice with the latest technology, including monocoque construction, Dunlop disc brakes all round, independent rear suspension and excellent rack and pinion steering.
