An icon needs no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type, particularly if a first series, is no exception. Many have been produced and many have survived, especially if we compare them to other sports cars of the same era, yet the quantity of examples still existing has not inflated their charm: the value of this model… Read More Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
The make and model of this project need no introduction: even those who are not enthusiastic about classic cars probably know this unmistakable profile. The spider version obviously has the peculiarity of the canvas roof, but our personal opinion is that the coupé profile is difficult to beat even by cars that are worth ten… Read More Aged Burgundy: 1962 Jaguar E-Type FHC
There are few cars, among those ever built, beautiful even if neglected and rusty. This is precisely the case with the E-Type roadster. In addition to being a spider (technically the name given by Jaguar for this version is OTS or Open Two Seater), this car is a true icon of world motoring along with… Read More Carmen red: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We can say that there is no better way to start the year 2021 with a survivor, even though in this case it is a car. Car, we have said, but certainly not a trivial one: it is in fact an automotive icon of the twentieth century whose image has also been too inflated and… Read More The survivor: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
This E-type has been stored for ten years and in all this time it has never been covered by a sheet: in theory this is not correct but on the other hand now the car has the classic patina of the barn find. The car has a beautiful color (Opalescent Silver Blue) and beautiful blue… Read More Blue sleeper: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2
We have already seen so many Jaguar e-types, but every now and then – very rarely – a very special one emerges from the darkness. This is the case of this OTS (Open Two Seater), one of the very first produced by the Coventry factory, which has very special characteristics, although to the majority they… Read More Details matter: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
If you think that the barn finds are found only in the US, you are wrong, and this auction is proof of this. There is in fact a collection of 81 cars (none in good condition, some in desperate conditions) that will be auctioned (also online) tomorrow by a french auction house that we did not… Read More The sunday auction: 81 barn finds
Another E-Type Jaguar? Why not? In the end it is an icon of the automotive industry and, last but not least, it is beautiful. But if the E-Type roadster looks beautiful in picture you should see one live: now we know that it is very rare to spot one in the wild but it is… Read More Unknown issue: 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We have seen cars to be restored in any conditions, but it is the first time we see one that recalls the appearance of Tutankhamun’s mummy when Howard Carter took it out of his sarcophagus. Maybe that’s because of the black paint dried (and cracked) under the sun of California, and perhaps also because the… Read More The mummy: 1969 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
This barn find E-Type is a bit different from many others being sold on the market in the same conditions: other than being one of the “flat floor” series cars, this is a very early car with the bonnet louvers welded (instead of being part of the bonnet itself). We all know that some details… Read More Welded louvers: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
