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.
If not everyone, most of you have already seen a Jaguar E-Type painted with the Union Jack scheme in the 1999 film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” In 1999, the Jaguar E-Type, even those belonging to the first series, had prices far from the current ones: today thinking of painting an E-Type in… Read More Groovy roadster: 1965 Jaguar E-Type OTS
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.
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.
This car is the 110th XK120 which came out of the Coventry factory and, as an early car, is one of the very few dressed with an alloy body, making it a special one. The astonishing thing is that the seller has not only one, but two of these cars: the other one is still… Read More Downsizing: 1950 Jaguar XK120 O.T.S. “Alloy”
This Jaguar XK 120 Open Two Seater is buried under a pile of unused home stuff and, at a glance, it doesn’t look well as is, however the seller says that it has no rust. Other than that, the seller says that the car is basically intact and that it still has its original California… Read More Pink slip: 1951 Jaguar XK 120 O.T.S.
This first series E-Type with its original Primerose Yellow paint is said to be a California barn find stored since 1979, with one owner only and 53k original miles on the back. Other than being original it has also the original tool set which is very rare on these cars. The paint is in quite… Read More Yellow find: 1964 jaguar E-Type 3.8 O.T.S.
