Nice Whips: RM Sotheby’s 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series Roadster 1
The Jaguar E-Type, that made its debut in 3.8-litre form back in 1961, is a sensational classic car with smooth lines, a sleek body, 265 bhp and a highly impressive — for its time — top speed of 150 mph. Sir William Lyons with the help of Malcolm Sayer and Willam Heynes truly created one of Jaguar’s most beautiful and timeless cars. The Series 1 Roadster, pictured above and up for auction, includes all the additions of the E-Type’s first evolution — a 4.2-litre engine, a fully synchronized gearbox, and more legroom to accommodate for taller drivers. This particular car comes in brilliant condition despite having clocked in just under 15,000 miles and boasts a clean triple black color scheme. A full concours-level restoration was also performed by Jaguar specialist Shaun Saunders to ensure the car is in peak condition. While the bidding starts at a hefty $250,000, this E-Type is often regarded as the ultimate Jaguar experience and provides a driving sensation that is nigh impossible to replicate in any other classic car.
