Legend has it that when it went on display for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, none other than Enzo Ferrari remarked that the E-type (known as the “XKE” in the U.S.) was the most beautiful car he’d ever seen.nMr. Ferrari knew a pretty car when he saw one and he might have been one of the first to express the sentiment, but an incalculable number of others have said virtually the same thing and they’re still saying it fifty years later. Designed by a noted aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer, the E-type was meant
to cheat the wind, but its glass covered headlights, long hood, short rear deck and compound curves also coincidentally looked great. With a 0-60 time of around seven seconds and a 150 mph top speed, the Series I E-type was near the top of the early 1960s food chain.
This magnificent E -type has been a well-cared for example for its entire existence with only three prior owners. Dispatched from the Jaguar Factory on 8 August 1967,
It was sold new to its first owner; a Mr. Jamisson, who purchased the car through
The New York Distributor, but took delivery of the car at the Jaguar Factory, returning it to the US a year later. Several owners later in the early 2000’s it was treated to a sympathetic restoration that was freshened by Milestone Motorcars in 2015. Much attention to detail and mechanical integrity was placed on the comprehensive service. Some upgrades to the cooling system, suspension and ignition system were added to improve reliability and drivability.
Striking in its black on black livery this lovely example is complemented with its original jack and bag, original complete tool kit and manual and pouch. It is also an indisputable matching numbers example with corroboration provided by a Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
A pleasure to drive and to admire this beautiful example is ready to be enjoyed.
