The Jaguar E-Type is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar cars LTD between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-Type’s 150 mph top speed, sub-7-second 0-62mph acceleration and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes. The E-Type was based on Jaguar’s D-type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of LeMans three consecutive years beginning 1955, and employed a racing design with both the body tub and engine bolted directly to the frame.
