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In October 1964 it was superseded by the 4.2 litre model; apart from the capacity increase from 3,781cc to 4,235cc and improved torque but the same power output, it boasted a new all synchromesh gearbox, better brake servo and seats, an alternator and leather-faced rather than aluminium dashboard. A 2+2 version of the coupé was added in 1966.
The 2+2 offered the option of an automatic transmission. The body was built 9 in (229 mm) longer and the roof angles are different with a more vertical windscreen to accommodate more luggage space and two additional seats in the rear.
This S1 2+2 E-Type is finished
