Considered by many to be the quintessential British Sports Car, the Jaguar E-Type's unveiling in 1961 caused a sensation both with the press and in the public eye. Admirers came from all walks of life; even Enzo Ferrari referred to it as “the most beautiful car ever made”. Beneath its gorgeous looks was a revolutionary sports car with rack and pinion steering, fully independent suspension, and four wheel disc brakes with inward rear rotors. All of this was propelled by the already proven performance of the XK engine. The Series II E-Type was released in 1968 and continued the trend of strong performance and handling mated with an iconic shape. Improvements were plentiful and included an increased grille opening to aid in cooling as well as a more refined interior that satisfied even the sportiest of drivers. All Series II E-types featured the larger 4.2 litre engine, which was good for over 240hp in U.S. specification. With further refinements, proven performance and stylish lines, it is no wonder why examples have become highly sought-after by classic Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts.

The wonderful 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster featured here is finished in stunning color combination of Light Blue with a black leather interior and matching black folding convertible top. This particular example has been in the care of single family ownership from new and was previously subject to a meticulous restoration. Today this Series II E-type roadster presents wonderfully all the while a mere 39,966 miles are present on the odometer; a number which is believed to reflect the total mileage accrued since new. We are proud to offer this exceptionally well kept 1969 Jaguar E-Type to the most particular collector or enthusiast who appreciates the performance, handling and design of these iconic British sports cars.
