E-Type Jaguar

The E-Type Jaguar encapsulated the needs of the male driver in 1961 – a streamlined body with the fastest speed of any production car – up to 150 mph.

The car caused a stir when it was unveiled at the Geneva car show on 15 March 1961. The audience were stunned at the £2,196 price tag, making it about half the cost of its competitors.
