Ever admired the Jaguar E-Type and asked yourself “why they don’t make them like this anymore?” Well, Jaguar is actually making them like this once more.
The British carmaker is giving the iconic E-Type a much-needed rebirth, in honour of its 60th anniversary. Jaguar is set to produce six of these immaculate, matched pairs of E-types. Each pair of E-type 60 Edition cars pay tribute to two of the oldest and most famous Jaguar E-types of all — ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’, which played pivotal roles in the unveiling of the car at its world debut in Geneva, Switzerland in March, 1961.
Dan Pink, Director of Jaguar Classic, said, “The Jaguar E-type is a genuine icon, as sensational today as the moment it was unveiled in 1961. It’s testament to the E-type’s advanced design and engineering that it can still be enjoyed and admired as passionately almost 60 years on.
“The E-type 60 Collection is a lasting tribute for E-type admirers, honouring the car’s legacy and the achievements of the team that created it – many of whom have descendants working for Jaguar Classic today, expertly restoring, maintaining and future-proofing enjoyment for generations to come.”
