It seems that the world must be filled with abandoned Jaguars waiting to be discovered in barns and garages and then pulled out and sold at auction.
Introduced in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show as the successor to the XK series, the Jaguar E-type, also known as the XK-E, was sleek and resembled the famous D-type race car.
The Jaguar E-Type has been universally hailed since new as one of the most beautiful cars ever constructed.
A musty “barn-find” 1963 Jaguar E-type coupe was the top seller at Classic Car Auctions’ sale last weekend at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre in the U.K.
After winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957 with its D-type, Jaguar was concerned that its newest technology had not passed down to its road cars.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, ClassicCars.com is feeling the love and asked readers to vote for the most romantic car.
All eyes in the collector-car world are focused on the auction today in Paris of one of the most spectacular “barn finds” in history.
The documentary was expected to premiere in August
