The Jaguar E-Type has long captivated auto enthusiasts with its sumptuous bodywork and impressive period performance. In fact, so remarkable was the design upon its debut that Enzo Ferrari actually described it as the “most beautiful car ever made.” And while there have been many an eye-catching automobile since the E-Type’s heyday, even now it’s hard to argue against such a statement.

The example featured here is a Series 1 E-Type Roadster that began its ownership history in Los Angeles, California in 1961. Afterward, it changed hands three more times before receiving a Concours-level nuts-and-bolt restoration by renowned Jaguar expert Dave Ferguson. What results is a car that’s nothing shy of absolutely stunning. Refinished in its factory original “Opalescent Bronze,” it’s been given an all-new leather interior and a black convertible top to suit. Under the hood, it’s powered by its matching-numbers 3.8L Jaguar flat-six. Elsewhere, you’ll find larger front discs for better braking, electronic ignition for improved reliability, and a five-speed manual for smoother shifting. When you consider that most of the car’s original parts were used in the restoration, this is an E-Type that’s nearly unrivaled in authenticity. It’s set to hit the auction block on January 22nd.
