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 which 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 grill opening to aid in cooling as well as a more refined interior that still satisfied the sportiest of drivers. All Series II E-types featured the larger 4.2 liter engine, which was good for over 240hp in U.S. specification. With further refinements, proven performance, and stylish lines, it is no wonder why Series II E-types have become one of the most sought-after models by classic Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts today.

The magnificent Jaguar E type series II roadster featured here is finished in stunning black over red leather interior and black folding convertible top.
