Jaguar E-type XKE 1961

General description : The Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation at its first public appearance during the 1961 Geneva Motor Show. Even Enzo Ferrari declared “this is the most beautiful car ever built!” And Enzo was a man who knew about car design. Sculptural lines and high performance, it was the first production cars to reach 150mph, with a remarkable road holding. Taller drivers though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of foot wells (and other, more minor modifications) early in 1962. But of all the versions of Jaguar's long-lived and much-loved sports car, it is the very early 'flat floor' 3.8-litre cars built prior to February 1962 which, for many enthusiasts, remain the most desirable.
 
Sleek and beautiful, with a competition pedigree, the E-Type became a star on the road as well on the race track.
 
This very early LHD car has been manufactured in Coventry in November 1961 with a magnificent Opalescent Silver Blue colour for the body and red hide for the seats, the choice of its first owner, a Mr. Gelb of Stamford, Connecticut, USA. Documentation shows the car had 3 owners before 2010. This E-Type remained in the USA, went into the ownership of a Mr Strickland of Atlanta, until the last American owner, Mr. Gindelberger, decided to sell it. The car then went to Europe in 2010 where it has been the subject of a total restoration of a very high quality. Retaining its original engine, this matching numbers car is waiting for the new owner to experience what an E-Type was the day it left the factory. Coming with this car is a complete photographic file of the restoration.
 
This is also a remarkable opportunity to acquire one of the most appreciating Jaguars of all.
