![CDATA[Introduced in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Types striking presence dazzled crowds and upended the automotive world. The British car was handsomely designed by a team led by the imaginative Malcom Sayer with the blessing of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons. The success of the E-Type was due in no small part to its stunning looks, high performance and competitive pricing - the equivalent Ferrari of the day was costing three times more and delivering less horsepower! With Jaguar's racing pedigree from the 1950s still fresh in the memory, it's no wonder the E-Type captured the hearts and minds of all who were at the launch. Built in 1966, this Series I car is fitted with the 4.2 litre powerplant, often considered the best E-Type engine. For the 4.2 model Jaguar introduced their own all-synchromesh gearbox along with improved seating and brakes. The new gearbox allowed faster changes and was well received in the motoring press at the time, offering an exhilarating driving experience for both pilot and passenger. Apart from '4.2' badging, the car's external appearance was unchanged but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements, chiefly to the electrical and cooling systems, top speed remained unchanged. The Jaguar E-Type is a genuine head-turner which thrives on its legendary reputation for sporting performance (it was based on Jaguars D-Type Le Mans racer) and ageless design. This superlative 1966 lefthand drive E-Type was purchased by the vendor when he lived in Arizona and formed part of an impressive collection of British manufactured motor cars. The car was repatriated to the UK in November 2018 and put into storage. The term nut and bolt restoration is often over-used, however in respect to this Jaguar, it most certainly applies. The silver coachwork is exemplary with panel gaps that look like they could have been set with a Vernier gauge, such is the uniformity. The interior has been trimmed to the highest standard and is totally unmarked. Open the bonnet and the quality of this E-Type is plainly evident, the engine with its polished cam covers glistens and the underside of the bonnet is painted to a finish commensurate of such a splendid example. Underneath this Jaguar is unmarked and mechanically she is faultless with the six cylinder engine sounding superb; we are advised she drives impeccably. Rarely do we see cars of such outstanding quality with unmarked coachwork, virtually new interior and hood together with impeccable brightwork. This really is one of the best Jaguar E-Types we have seen.]]
