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 266 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. With such timeless appeal and praised appearance, it is no wonder why the Series 1 E-type roadster is one of only a handful of motorcars on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. 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 stunning 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Roadster featured here is finished in the highly sought after color combination of Carmen Red over black leather interior and black folding convertible top. This particular example was completed by the Coventry works in June 1966 and was soon after dispatched to Jaguar Cars New York. A meticulously maintained example from new, this E-Type presents wonderfully today while a mere 60,243 miles are present on the odometer. The second owner cared for the E-Type for more than 30 years and less than 3,000 miles have been added since the complete restoration. The numbers matching 4.2 litre engine is still in place and this highly sought after final production year Series I E-Type will certainly bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are proud to offer this stunning 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Roadster (from the final year of covered headlight production) to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the blend of style and performance that made the E-Type one of the most celebrated designs in automotive history!
