Car Of The Day – Jaguar E-Type Roadster Up For Auction

by Mike –

The Jaguar E-Type (or XKE) needs no introduction. It is well known that the E-Type is one of the most beautiful cars ever produced. Based on the D-Type, a very successful race car, the E-Type has the speed and acceleration to match its looks.

It also inherited many of the performance features of its ancestors like disc brakes, monocoque construction, rack and pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension.

A perennially favorite on all the lists of best sports cars and most beautiful cars, the Jaguar E-Type will always be a great car to own and drive and it will always be a great collector car.

I have never owned a Jaguar but the E-Type (XKE) is very tempting. They look great, sound great and are fast. I suspect they will hold their value too.

Let us know what you think in the Comments.

  1. Mike, was at Images the other day. Lots of E Types in various stages of restoration. Like a candy store! Stunning work. They recently repainted my XJ6C and it is beautiful. It is amazing what they do with the E Types there.
