Jaguar E Type 4.2 Series 1 1965


Specifications


Description

Beautiful styling, excellent road manners, and in real terms, for a car with such iconic status, values are still realistic.

Although automotive styling is subjective, the one vehicle that seems to top more opinion polls naming the most beautiful car in the world, the Jaguar E-type. Styled mainly by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer, with significant input by Sir William Lyons, the coupe and roadsters caused a sensation when unveiled in 1961.

In short, the E-type redefined the way in which we all viewed sports cars, and how little it could actually cost to buy a 150mph car (it cost £2098, when an Aston Martin DB4 was over £5000). Despite that, the E-type was still fast enough to redefine what was expected from top-drawer manufacturers, such as Aston Martin and Ferrari. .

Although the E-type coupé was the fastest and most useful of the breed, it's the Roadster that attracts the most attention (and greater values) today. The open-top car was just as effective to drive as the coupe, thanks to a stiff under-structure.

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • Matching numbers car.
  • A 4.2ltr manual Roadster – the creme de la creme of  the Jaguar E Types. The 4.2 actually felt more grown-up to drive, thanks to its lower red line and greater torque at lower revs and a full synchro gearbox.
  • This car was imported to New Zealand by its UK owners on the 8th of March 1996, who owned for more than 20 years in New Zealand before being purchased by us.
  • Prior to coming to New Zealand, it was the recipient of a no expense spared, full body off restoration by Classic Motor Cars Ltd in the UK – www.classic-motor-cars.co.uk – for those who are not familiar with this Company, Classic Motor Cars was founded in 1993 and has over the ensuing years built an international reputation for car restoration to world-class standards.
  • The mileage indicated here is the distance traveled since restoration.
  • Beautiful in red with black interior, a most desirable colour scheme, this car is in outstanding overall condition.
  • Good value for pretty much one of the most iconic classic cars money can buy.

With the rise and rise of Jaguar E-types in the international auction world over the last couple of years, provenance has become an increasingly big part of the equation and lets all remember that it was the man himself – Enzo Ferrari that described this car “the most beautiful car in the world'
