One of Jaguars most legendary models in an incredible colour.

Jaguar had enjoyed great success with its XK series of sports cars, but the E-Type was not, as might have been expected, a continuation of the XK150. Instead, the XKE (as it was dubbed in the U.S.) was based largely upon a pair of prototype racing cars which themselves borrowed heavily from the very successful monocoque-bodied D-Type racing chassis. It's curvaceous bodies were designed by Malcolm Sayer, a pioneer in automotive aerodynamics.
This incredible 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Roadster, rolls up to auction via RM Sotheby's Arizona series 28th - 29th of february, has had an rebuild of the original engine, making it more useful for todays fuel and the gearbox has been removed and rebuilt. The updated engine and gearbox makes the driving a lot smother and easier which makes it perfect for those long sunday drives with no specific landing point. We surely could see ourselves behind the wheels of this perfect example of one of Jaguars most popular cars driving for hours just soaking up pure pleasure of driving a great automobile.
