Jaguar ‘Series I’ E Type Driving Experience
Sir William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar, realised that he had created a legend. It’s hard to comprehend the effect this British machine had on the world in 1961, when 70mph was fast for the average family runabout, never mind the 150mph the E-type could reach. Based on Jaguar’s racing D-Type, which had won Le Mans from 1955-57, the E-type came with not only racing heritage but sophisticated front and rear independent suspension, disc brakes all round and a lightweight monocoque providing unrivalled performance at the time. Powered by a 4.2 litre version of the proven Jaguar XK engine, it developed 265bhp through the four speed synchro meshed gearbox and is capable of 0-60mph in 6.4s which is rapid by even today’s standards.
