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. This car was fast indeed, and combined with superb roadholding and remarkable docility. One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar’s E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch; here was a sleek and beautiful car with a competition pedigree that could be bought for just over £2000, around half the cost of a comparable Aston Martin or Ferrari. In October 1964 it was superseded by the 4.2 litre model, where the capacity increased from 3,781cc to 4,235cc, which improved torque while delivering the same amount of power. It boasted an all-new synchromesh gearbox, better brake servo, an alternator, more comfortable seating and leather-faced rather than aluminium dashboard.
