You don't have to be a car enthusiast to appreciate this beauty of a car. This Jaguar E-Type is truly one of those cars who just takes your breath away and now it can actually be yours.

In 1964 the E-Type was upgraded, with an increase in engine size from 3.8 liters to 4.2, as well as better brakes and improved electrics. The 4.2-Litre E-Type retained its stellar performance with 0–60 mph in 6.5 seconds, 0–100 mph in 16.2 seconds, and a top speed of 150 mph. It won't be reaching it's top speed when its rolling into auction via RM Sothebys, but that's okay. It makes it easier for us to look and perhaps stare a bit to much on this beauty.
The original engine and drivetrain were rebuilt, with the exception of the gearbox, which was examined and determined to shift perfectly. The suspension was overhauled with new bushings and ball joints. New brakes were fitted, the fuel system and cooling system were overhauled, and all electrical parts were rebuilt or replaced as necessary. This supremely prepared roadster has covered less than 800 miles since restoration and is now perhaps even better than ever. One thing is for sure, the timeless look of this E-type and it's Silver Blue color will sure keep them heads turning along the road.
