Rare E-Type to sell at auction

Beautiful, black and big-ticket prices

Jaguar has recently been making a splash in the automotive community with the new F- Type, continuing the legendary line of Jaguar sports cars. But to this very day, one is set apart from the rest - the E-Type.

Even the great Enzo Ferrari was quoted saying that E-Types were 'the most beautiful car ever made'. One prime example of the E-Type is set to be auctioned at the Historics at Brooklands (near Weybridge, Surrey), on May 31st.

This rare E is one of the last left-hand drive Series One models to leave the Browns lane factory in Coventry. The 1967 4.2-liter black beauty (with a low 50000 miles) is expected to bring anywhere from $142000 to $168058. A full two-year intensive nut and bolt restoration, along with enhancements to the engine, gearbox and even braking and suspension upgrades should justify the waving of any true E-Type fan's paddle.
