In an article in the November issue entitled “Cars I Have Owned,” I said I thought the Jaguar XK150 was superior to the E-type. The only E-type I had then driven was an early example and so far as it was concerned, I should not wish to retract what I said.
But having now had an opportunity of driving one of the new 4.2 E-types, I must say that this is an entirely transformed car, and in my view a great advance on the 150. Its twitchability on a twisty road is most exhilerating, and the new gearbox is a real joy to use.
