The launch of the Jaguar E-Type at the Geneva Motor Show in May 1961 is still an object of legend today: it is said that Norman Dewis, official Jaguar driver, piloted the brand new coupé all night from London to Switzerland, to arrive on time. at the presentation of the car.
The then aeronautical engineer Malcolm Sayer had recently developed in Jaguar the original monocoque of the D-Type (car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three times, between 1955 and 1957) when he received from Sir William Lyons, the assignment to design a car combining the most daring aerodynamic concepts of the time, power and elegance.
Thus in 1961 the first Jaguar E-Type was born, a car of extraordinary beauty.
Following several evolutions, the Series 3 was launched in 1971, and was fitted with the new 5,300 cc 60 ° V12 mid-engine, derived from the Jaguar XJ13 Sport-prototype.
Equipped with 2 Zenith-Stromberg carburettors and an overhead camshaft for each cylinder bank, the V12 had 272 hp, with a smooth and progressive delivery that made it a perfect Granturismo. The same long wheelbase floor was used for both the coupe and the spider versions.
The manual gearbox remained Jaguar-made, 4-speed, while the automatic became the 3-speed Borg-Warner Typ12. For the interior, adjustable steering wheel with standard power steering and wood upholstery.
The brakes were also adequately strengthened given the car's heavier weight.
On the outside the new Coupe featured a new chrome grille, an exhaust with four fan tailpipes, widened fenders and Dunlop E70 tires mounted on standard steel rims.
Spoked wheels were available as an option, a favorite choice for almost all lovers of the jaguar house.
In 1975, after 14 years and approximately 70,000 cars produced, the Jaguar E-Type went out of production, replaced by the Jaguar XJ-S.
