Jaguar has made a tradition of taut, lithe, shapely automobiles since the prewar days of the SS90 and SS100. Aerodynamics always figured in William Lyons' Jaguar designs, a consideration that was formalized with the arrival in Coventry of Malcolm Sayer, a trained aerodynamicist. He applied his experience to the C-type and D-type race cars with singular success, then translated the D-type's svelte, efficient shape into the production E-type, known in the U.S. as the XKE. It set new standards for appearance, appeal and value and has been appreciated by everyone who cast eyes upon one since it was introduced. This beautiful Red example with Parchment leather interior has been given a complete, no excuses, ground-up proper restoration to better than new condition. Nothing was left to chance, nothing was overlooked. It has its original, matching numbers, engine, rides on correct profile Avon tires and has been sparingly used since the restoration was completed so it is still nearly fresh and still better than new. This is an outstanding example of one of the most appreciated, recognized and enjoyable automobiles ever built, ready to be shown and driven with pride and satisfaction.
