vintage! Jaguar E-Type | drive it

Jaguar's iconic E-Type sports car was first presented to the public at the Geneva Auto Salon in 1961. When it was introduced, the E-type with its long low hood and what many see as its voluptuous curves was an immediate sensation.Incorporating many features from Jaguar's successful D-type race car, the E-type's straight six engine produced 269 hp and a top speed of almost 240 km/h. In 1971, the popular two seater was revamped, and became available with a V-12. The last ones were built in 1974, and today a well-preserved specimen can cost up to 100,000 Euros.
