Description

Enzo Ferrari was famed for his dismissive quotes about the importance of anything on a car other than its engine, “I build engines and attach wheels to them” he said, Of course, Ferrari have also produced some of the worlds most beautiful and desirable cars, but on the subject of beauty, Enzo Ferrari’s most memorable maxim was thus:
“The Jaguar E-Type is the most beautiful car in the world.”
He might just have been on to something, as well.
The E-type was, and is, one of the most sensational looking machines ever to take to race track and road. It`s universal appeal extracts admiration from just about every sect of society, the instantly recognisable silhouette with the protracted nose, that extends out like some sort of elongated shark. Those flared haunches and the comparatively squat rear, proportions that probably ought not to work, but for the pen of Malcolm Sayer, the designer who’s work on the E-Type would create a stance and a style that would influence Jaguars models well past his own untimely death a month short of his 54th birthday.
Fire up the engine and the noise of the 6 cylinders detonating into life only enhances the extraordinary appeal of this car, and the 3.8 L engine would surely have garnered the approval of Enzo as well, with a claimed top speed of 150mph and sub seven second 0-60 time,
Even today the Jaguar E-type is still recognised by many to be the greatest ever sports car. The Series 1 3.8 is the purest iteration of the  Jaguar E-Type, a model that is truly appreciated by enthusiasts young and old .
