The Jaguar XKE was an instant sensation upon its introduction in 1961. Beautiful, sleek, aerodynamic and efficient, it was also fast and, well, just plain sexy. What's more, the XKE offered superior performance for the money to its European rivals, and it would remain a tempting choice for discerning sports car buyers throughout its production life of a decade and a half. The Series II introduced in 1968 was a more refined car, with a more flexible 4.2-liter version of the venerable XK straight-six engine, fully synchronized four-speed gearbox, larger parking lights and a few other changes brought about by evolving regulations on lighting and passive safety equipment. One of the finest Series II roadsters extant, this very late production XKE was built in January of 1971, near the end of production before Jaguar switched over to the larger Series 3 cars. This car has received a full ground up nut and bolt restoration to concours standards. It is finished in black and has a black hardtop, soft top and top boot The interior is tan leather and features a period radio as well as period correct air conditioning that blows cold. . Fitted with chrome wire wheels and red line radial tires, and equipped with the original jack and spare. Showing just over 37,000 miles on the odometer, this XKE is superbly presented with a highly detailed engine bay and immaculate undercarriage. Series II examples are seldom found in such condition, making this car truly exceptional.
