The Jaguar E-Type, or the Jaguar XKE is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-Type's 150 mph top speed, sub 7 second 0 to 60 mph acceleration, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car. The E-Type was based on Jaguar's D-Type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years beginning 1955, and employed what was, for the early 1960s, a novel racing design principle, with a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolted directly to the body tub.
On its release in March 1961 Enzo Ferrari called it "the most beautiful car ever made." In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the world's "100 most beautiful cars" of all time. Outside automotive circles, the E-type received prominent placement in comic series, Austin Powers films and the television series Mad Men.

This strikingly gorgeous Jaguar coupe is truly a drivers car and not for the strict purist. The car was originally delivered new to Peter Linden located in Frankfurt Germany as a European spec example in February 1964, as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate. Peter Lindner was a well known Jaguar dealer and accomplished race driver as well. It was sold to an owner in Spain by his dealership and titled in 1965, as a common practice in that time and retains that registration. The car later made its way to the US. A some point in time the original 3.8 liter engine was replaced with another correct 3.8 liter 6 cylinder engine. During a much later restoration in 2005, a complete bare metal tub and subframe respray was done changing the original gold color to it's current signal red. The engine and drive train were rebuilt at that time. The car also was fitted with a later Series 2 bonnet retrofitted with covered headlamps. It was also nicely fitted with a Jaguar factory AC unit from a Series 2 car as well. This Jaguar coupe has been very well maintained with enhanced electronic ignition and supplemental electric cooling fan additions. Recent service has included a carb rebuild and major tuneup. The front brake calipers were also completely rebuilt. This car also has a complete tool kit and owners handbook.

This most handsome Jaguar Coupe is a pleasure to drive with strong engine performance and highly stabile handling characteristics. Once again, maybe not for the purist but certainly a most affordable and solid collectible automobile that you will find any where on the market today.
