Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type was nothing short of a revelation. With its heady blend of supercar performance, breathtaking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. Early sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, the model's combination of all-round independent suspension rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling capabilities.
This genuine righthand drive example E-Type Coupé is an early 4.2 litre car and one that presents in very good order throughout. Finished in the desirable combination of Opalescent Green with Tan interior this handsome Jaguar sits proudly on chrome wire wheels and new tyres. We are advised she drives well with no known faults and benefits from having had a recent service. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a Heritage Certificate this Series I 4.2 is the 18th righthand drive Coupé of 1,583 manufactured and has only had four owners throughout its 55 years on British roads. With good coachwork and chromework together with a tidy interior this car is best described as a very nice genuine example with a very realistic estimate.
