What we said at the time

“The Jaguar is a splendid example of good Coventry workmanship and the E-type is in every way an outstanding example of the highest conception of British race-bred sports car. Although its performance, acceleration and speed-wise, naturally constitutes its primary attraction, its astonishing docility, the more surprising because it is unexpected, the comfort allied to stability of the suspension, the excellent brakes and its eye-able appearance combine to make the Jaguar E-type one of the World’s great motor cars.” (Motor Sport July 1962)
