For many people, the E-Type remains the ultimate production Jaguar. A car whose heady blend of styling and performance were so exceptional at its 1961 Geneva Motor Show launch that they continue to cast a smooth, elliptical shadow over the marque's new sports cars some forty-seven years on. Allied to a monocoque passenger cell, the model's tubular front sub-frame cradled a 3781cc (later 4235cc) DOHC straight-six engine, independent torsion-bar suspension and rack and pinion steering. While its back axle played host to a sophisticated coil-sprung set-up complete with inboard disc brakes. Never officially referred to as such by Jaguar, the so-called 'Series 1.5' cars appeared in late 1967. Drip fed a host of detail improvements prior to the Series 2's official introduction the following October (including a more spacious cabin layout, redesigned convertible hood, larger capacity cooling system and boot hinge covers etc), they remain particularly sought after by enthusiasts.

Finished in Old English White with red leather upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good overall" condition. Supplied to its previous keeper, Mr Norman Jacobs, by Mann Egerton during September 1969, 'UBJ 663F' is believed but not warranted to have covered just 44,500 odd miles from new. Laid up by Mr Jacobs between 1978 and 1993 when it entered the current ownership, the Jaguar has never been restored. Though, the past fifteen years have seen it treated to annual servicing and reskinned doors etc. Pleasingly retaining its original patinated interior, this 'timewarp' E-type is offered for sale with Mann Egerton purchase invoice, letter of provenance from Mr Jacobs, original service book, owner's manual, routine maintenance chart, April 1978 MOT certificate (showing 38,293 miles), recent servicing records (1993 onwards) and current MOT certificate valid until May 2009.

Among the last century's great motoring icons, Jaguar's E-type has always inspired loyalty and devotion. Born out of the fabulous D-type racer, the model soon acquired a strong competition heritage of its own. Launched at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the Big Cat proved faster and more glamorous than virtually any production rival. Certainly few could match its reputed 150mph top speed. At a time when Ferrari's lauded 250SWB and 250GTO made do with 'live' rear axles, the E-type utilised a sophisticated independent rear set-up with inboard disc brakes. While, rack and pinion steering enhanced the monocoque chassis's excellent roadholding and handling; putting it light years ahead of American designs like the Corvette. Revised in 1964, the E-type gained a torquier 4235cc powerplant and four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox of Jaguar's own design.

Finished in red with black upholstery, this particular example was reportedly converted from left- to right-hand drive by Henry Pearman's Eagle E-type company. Entering the current ownership via the renowned specialist for £23,775 in 1999, 'FAV 59C' is since understood to have had attention paid to its "back axle, rear springs, shock absorbers, floors / sills and interior trim". Upgraded with a Getrag five-speed manual gearbox, stainless steel exhaust and Coopercraft brakes, it has also been treated to "a new battery, hoses, body seals and wheels / tyres". Apparently given a major service by Wat Jag Ltd (2006) and entrusted to Classic Performance Engineering for a new clutch / engine fettling, the E-type is said to be "in fine condition with regard to its mechanics, paint and bodywork". Used for two recent French tours, 'FAV 59C' is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until June 2009.

Last of the line, the Jaguar E-type Series III was introduced in 1971. Longer, wider and more comfortable than its predecessors, the newcomer blurred the lines between sportscar and grand tourer. Powered by a turbine-smooth all-alloy SOHC 5343cc V12 engine allied to either Jaguar four-speed manual or Borg Warner three-speed automatic transmission, the refined manner in which it performed (contemporary road tests spoke of 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds and 150mph) simply blew road testers away. Benefiting from a broader track, ventilated disc brakes, power-assisted rack and pinion steering and Lucas transistorised ignition, the Series III was visually distinguished by its 'egg-crate' grille, flared wheelarches and purposeful quad-exhaust pipes. Available in fixed-head coupe (2+2-seater) or roadster (2-seater) guises, it remained in volume production until 1974 (though, a special commemorative run of forty-nine black-painted roadsters was released the following year).

Finished in Old English White with black leather upholstery, this particular example has covered a warranted 8,200 miles from new. Beginning life as a Guy Salmon demonstrator, 'HGT 131N' is known to have changed hands just twice more before entering the current (fourth) ownership on August 21st 1978. A desirable manual car that is said to have been "driven on only a handful of occasions over the last thirty years" the roadster still retains its original tyres and tools etc. Well cared for but unrestored, this exceptional E-type is offered for sale with January 1975 - January 1976 tax disc, assorted old MOTs, letters from previous keepers, factory steel wheels and black hardtop (though, the latter items will need to be collected from Hertfordshire). It is also hoped but not guaranteed that the Jaguar will possess a new MOT certificate come the auction.
