Description

The E-Type's Malcolm Sayer-penned lines are thought by many to be among the most striking ever to adorn a motor car. Indeed, only a few years ago the Daily Telegraph ranked the E-Type top in a pole of the '100 most beautiful cars of all time'. The E-Type, or XK-E as it was known in the USA, made its debut at the 1961 Geneva Salon where its unique combination of grace and pace stole the show. The Series 2 models introduced in 1969 are distinguished by their lack of headlamp covers, enlarged front air intake, repositioned front indicators and tail lights, wrap-around rear bumper, twin-electric fans, uprated brakes and refashioned facia and seats.

Finished in red with a beige interior this UK supplied RHD example has recently been bought out of long term storage from its previous keeper who had owned the Jaguar since 2004. Mated to automatic transmission this 2+2 example will require a small amount of re-commissioning before returning to the road.
