In 1961 after years of speculation, Jaguar uncaged the ultimate cat, the XKE. This car was so outstanding, that all the other cars paled before it. It was the last of the great racing cars that could be driven on the road. The performance was wild and exciting yet the car exuded beauty and luxury.
The magnificent body was designed in a wind tunnel by Malcolm Sayer, an outstanding aircraft designer. It was crafted of 20 gauge sheet metal with welding monocoupe construction. This allowed savings in weight since there was no heavy frame. There were many innovations introduced in this car.
The first model introduced in 1961 was the Series I E-type.
In 1964 the 3.8 liter car was replaced by the 4.2 liter car. In 1971 in order to pep up the Big Cat, the V-12 engine was installed and known as the Series III.
Look at this elegant roadster from Jaguar. The Series III V-12 XKE. Original 1 owner since 1974. Over $100,000 spent in repairs and restoration over the years.
