A collector’s dream!
A car Enzo Ferrari called “the most beautiful car ever made”, the Jaguar E-Type is considered by many to be one of the most gorgeous automobiles ever built. It took the automotive world by storm upon its unveiling at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and still continues to turn heads to this day. Underneath its gorgeous, aerodynamic exterior were several state of the art features. Four wheel independent suspension was at all four corners along with four wheel disc brakes that were mounted inward of the axles in the rear. A rack-and-pinion unit provided responsive steering and helped to make the E-type one of the best handling cars of the era. Power was initially provided by the 3.8 Litre straight six from the XK150S. Producing 265 horsepower, the E-type was capable of more than 150mph. Combined, these features made the E-type one of the most celebrated sports cars ever produced with incredible power, handling, braking and style that rivaled anything else Europe produced. Coveted in its day by the most sporting of drivers, the E-type still remains one of the most sought after cars in history, especially in Series I Roadster form.
The 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster featured here is finished in classic and desirable British Racing Green with a gorgeous Biscuit leather interior and matching convertible top. This magnificent motorcar is among one of the finest examples you will find on the market today; a comprehensive, concours level restoration was completed less than 2,000 miles ago on this original California car. With only 18,759 actual miles from new, this investment-grade, early production Series I 3.8 Roadster comes fully documented with its owner’s manual, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, service records and receipts as well as a photo album that completely documents the restoration.
