Jaguar E Type S1.5 FHC (1965)
Vehicle descriptionIntroduced in 3.8 litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a major sensation when it first appeared, with classic smooth lines, great looks and an amazing, at the time,top speed of 150 MPH. With 265 bhp and a huge weight saving of over 500lbs on its immediate predecessor (the XK 150), William Lyons had created one of the all-time most beautiful cars ever to be produced by Jaguar. The first evolution was the introduction of the 4.2 litre engine, fully synchronised gearbox and greater legroom to accommodate six foot plus drivers. This is often regarded as the ultimate driving E-type, and even now a well sorted example is a sensational driving experience with a sense of occasion that's hard to replicate at any price in a classic car.
