On its Geneva Show debut in March 1961 the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation, with all the promise of its looks confirmed by a 150mph top speed and 0-60 and 0-100mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively, fast indeed, and combined with superb roadholding and remarkable docility. In October 1964 it was superceded by the 4.2 litre model, apart from the capacity increase from 3,781cc to 4,235cc and improved torque but the same power, it boasted a new all synchromesh gearbox, better brake servo and seats, an alternator and leather- faced rather than aluminium dashboard.

The E-Type, of course, has been raced with outstanding success since the year it was produced, finding favour with racing drivers the world over and examples have subsequently been modified well
