Additional Information:

The Jaguar E-Type – or on the North American continent, the XK-E – was born of racing heritage on Jaguar’s D-Type racing model.  The D-Type was renowned for placing first in the 24 Hours of Le Mans three year’s consecutively.  At the time in the 1960’s, Jaguar had introduced a number of groundbreaking engineering designs with the D-Type, including a monocoque tub with front sub-frame bolt-on, disc brakes, independent suspension in both front and rear, and rack-and-pinion steering among others.

While originally designed for speed and performance, the refined E-Type added significant beauty to the performance profile for the consumer market.  During the E-Type’s debut in 1961, Enzo Ferrari described the E-Type as the most beautiful car ever built – certainly as high a complement as could be said of a motorcar.

Today, Jaguar’s E-Type are revered as much as they’ve ever been, if not more so.  The E-Type is highly sought after and highly valued making the E-Type an investment target for the affluent car lover.  The E-Type has retained remarkable resale value, and continues to grow as time passes.

Sports Car Classics has made the complete Concours restoration of this beautiful motorcar a passion for decades.  Please inquire if you would like to become an E-Type owner.  If you already own a classic Jaguar and would like SCC to restore your motorcar’s condition, please contact us for a discussion about your project.
