Considered by many to be the quintessential British Sports Car, the Jaguar E-Type 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 4.2L 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-Type has become one of the most sought-after models by classic Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts.
