Jaguar’s Latest Continuation Cars Mark 60 Years Since The E-type’s Debut

Described by the great Enzo Ferrari as “the most beautiful car ever made,” the Jaguar E-type is a legendary British sports car that was based on the Coventry company’s back-to-back-to-back 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning D-type racer. Produced from 1961 through ’75, the E-type is now celebrating the 60th anniversary since its debut, and to mark the occasion Jaguar Classic is crafting just a dozen ultra-limited E-type recreation cars.

Made entirely by hand, these recreation E-types are based on matching numbers specimens using restored 3.8 E-types. Jag’s Classic division is creating six fixed-head coupes 9600 HP models plus half-a-dozen E-type 60 Edition roadsters. Powering the continuation cars are refreshed 3.8L inline-six XK engines with 1961-spec alloy radiators, electric cooling fans and ignitions, specially-developed close-ratio five-speed manual gearboxes, and polished stainless steel exhaust systems that collectively allow for an output of 265hp. The entirely bespoke, hand-stitched interiors of both versions are expertly crafted using the finest materials available, plus feature a number of subtle modern upgrades like Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation.
