Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Convertible
First Registration 1968, Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Convertible, Series 1 1/2
Since 1990 same Ownership
Swiss Road Regsitration with „Veteran“ entry
The Swinging Sixties were just beginning to gain momentum when Jaguar made a brilliant design statement at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961, the impact of which would go beyond that of an iconic new sports car. With its sensually exciting shapes and striking proportions – an endless bonnet and a short rear end – the new Jaguar E-Type marked the dawn of a new era.
The design of the Jaguar E-Type came from Malcolm Sayers, the special attraction was the combination of charisma and driving performance. This Jaguar was intended to replace the D-Type used in racing, but was modified for road use after its retirement from motorsport. The E-Type competed in terms of performance with sports cars of the highest performance class, which were however twice as expensive.
This Jaguar E-Type with 4.2 litres is already the improved version after the 3.8 litres. The aesthetic features of the Series 1 make this E-Type a desirable collector’s car, and its elegance, even in the interior, is unfortunately not achieved to the same degree by the later models. In particular, the nitro paint in dark blue gives the E-Type a deep lustre that is no longer found in modern paintwork.
This breathtaking sports car icon has been in the same ownership since 1990 and has been totally restored to the highest level on his behalf without any consideration of costs. As a result, over CHF 200,000 was invested. Extensive invoices and a detailed photo documentation attest to the perfect restoration of this E-Type. This E-Type is optically as well as technically in a uniquely perfect condition and such examples from a loving long-term ownership are only extremely rarely offered for sale. A stunningly beautiful car for the passionate driver and collector.
