The Jaguar E-type is considered by many to be Britain’s finest sports car, and has become an icon of the sixties and seventies. The car has won innumerable accolades for style, performance and engineering. For many, owning an E-type has been a lifelong dream.

The car’s original specification, and the changes that Jaguar made during production, are fascinating for the detail they reveal of the engineering and sales challenges that the car faced – for many owners and enthusiasts they are crucial to every E-type’s historical integrity.

This beautifully produced book contains a wealth of information and detailed photographs, gleaned from extensive research, providing an accurate reference source to originality for all production E-types – Series 1, 2 and 3.
