We’re used to seeing cars listed on eBay. It’s a pretty normal thing. But an all-wood, hand-carved model of a Jaguar E-Type to scale? That’s a new one.
In 1963, Jaguar planned to build 18 E-Type Lightweight racing coupes, with aluminum bodies and ripping D-Type racing engines. Only 12 were assembled. 50 years later, Jaguar set out to build the rest. And Road & Track got to slip behind the wheel.
Steubenville, Ohio, is about as far from the sulky world of Jaguar advertising as you can get. Whatever money was here has long vanished. The stone churches and plate-glass storefronts that dominate downtown are relics from before the steel mill across the river shut its doors for good.
After a weekend away I returned to NYC on a Sunday evening. Inevitably all the primo spots were taken, so I was forced to venture into the depths of the multi-level garage. As I idled along, eyes trained for any open spot, my brain registered what I'd just passed and I immediately forgot all about parking.
The reason why this barn-find Jaaaag E-Type made three times its pre-sale estimate is that it's a 1961 "Flat Floor", one of the last unrestored examples.
For my birthday weekend Sarah, my wife, hired us a Jaguar E-type for 24 hours, and booked us a hotel in the Cotswolds. The plan was that we'd drive up to Great Escape Cars in the Cotswolds to pick up the E-type, wend our way down to our hotel 100 miles south then meander back the next day.
When the original Jaguar E-Type was first released in 1961 Enzo Ferrari called it the "most beautiful car ever made"—certainly lofty praise from the direct competition.
A beautiful 1965 Jaguar XKE 4.2-Liter Series I Roadster that was formerly owned by Sir Elton John sold at auction in Oxford, England yesterday for an impressive $130,027 (£82,140).
On the 50th anniversary of the original Jaguar E-Type, here's Brett Berk's list of 20 cars other than the E-Type that are also shaped like a penis.
When Disneyland first opened, you had to use scrip to get on the rides, and the best attractions required an E-ticket. Jaguar's E-Type has always represented one of autodom's best, and most attractive, rides, but do the mods on today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe '65 make it too Mickey Mouse?
Five decades ago, inside a grand villa off Lake Geneva, Jaguar unveiled the E-Type. Journos got so heated that Sir William Lyons ordered another be delivered from Coventry for demo runs. Test driver Norman Dewis did the honors.
The retro-obsessed designers at Vizualtech make a point of mentioning not everyone likes the new Jaguar design direction. Their solution? Drop an E-type-inspired body on the current XKR.
It’s not like England’s greatest phallic sports car needed any visual gags to make it more obvious, but watch what happens when the great French comic actor Louis de Funès gives it the Gallic treatment.
Jaguar is celebrating its 75th anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion we've put together our favorite examples of the breed — all seven-and-a-half of them. The best from the leaping-cat breed below.
The Jaguar E-Type is on every car-nuts must-have list as one of the most lust-worthy road-going cars ever produced. This guy managed to finally buy his own. It caught fire on the way home.
At the end of a production run of cars, there are inevitably bits and pieces left behind which aren't assembled and have to be taken off the production line in the boxes they came in. When production on the Jaguar E-Type ended at Browns Lane in 1974, just such a thing happened, and a Jag fanatic picked up those…
Those of you who read the Down On The Street FAQ over the weekend know that some of the machines we see in this series don't live on the street full-time. Most do, but every so often I'll find an obvious non-daily-driver that's just visiting, or maybe getting a rare exposure to the world outside of the garage. This…
Despite the ongoing shenanigans between Ford and TATA over the sale of Jaguar and Land Rover, there are whispers emerging about the possible revival of the venerable Jaguar E-Type. Australia's Courier Mail is reporting Jag honchos are considering the revival of what many consider the most beautiful production car to…
Ever since Farago inaugurated the Fantasy Garage with the RUF RT12, you all have been clamoring for specific cars. "Where's the 250 GTO? (right here) Where's the E-type? (right here) Where's the
Tumbler E39 M5?" (right here) And of course, "Where's the Toyota 2000GT?" As we grind down to the 50-car wire please be…
