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 gorgeous 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning, factory correct color combination of Dark Blue over a matching Dark Blue leather interior and blue folding convertible top. This particular example was just recently released from over 30 years of single ownership where was under meticulous care and scarcely driven. This E-type was previously subject of a comprehensive cosmetic restoration including a bare metal respray and interior re-trim in the original colors.
