It was Enzo Ferrari, founder of the prancing horse brand that bears his last name, who once said that the Jaguar E-Type was “the most beautiful car ever made.” And we’re inclined to agree with the sentiment. It had seemed, however, that the days of finding a mint-condition E-Type anywhere were coming to a close. That is, until Jaguar just announced that they’d be restoring a small number to their original specifications and putting them up for sale.
That’s right, the 60s sports car that epitomized the era’s energy and allure is returning – or at least ten examples of it are. Each vehicle – pored over with the kind of attention to detail only the master craftsmen at Jaguar Classic can muster – is being brought back to the exact same specifications they had when they originally left the factory using only classic Jaguar parts. Which means that, nearly 60 years since the car’s initial release, this is now the closest anyone will ever get to owning a brand spanking new E-type. But that opportunity comes at a steep price, as these factory-restored classic cars will be going for $360,000 and up.
