A car Enzo Ferrari called “the most beautiful car evermade”, the Jaguar E-Type is considered by many to be one of the most gorgeousautomobiles ever built. It took the automotive world by storm upon itsunveiling at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and still continues to turn heads tothis day. Underneath its gorgeous, aerodynamic exterior were severalstate-of-the-art features. Four-wheel independent suspension was at all fourcorners along with four-wheel disc brakes that were mounted inward of the axlesin the rear. A rack-and-pinion unit provided responsive steering and helped tomake the E-type one of the best handling cars of the era. Power was initiallyprovided by the 3.8 Litre straight-six from the XK150S. Producing 265horsepower, the E-type was capable of more than 150mph. Combined, thesefeatures made the E-type one of the most celebrated sports cars ever producedwith incredible power, handling, braking, and style that rivaled anything elseEurope produced. With such timeless appeal and praised appearance, it is nowonder why the Series 1 E-type roadster is one of only a handful of motorcarson display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Coveted in its day by themost sporting of drivers, the E-type still remains one of the most sought-aftercars in history, especially in Series I Roadster form.
