A Century of Cars: 2. Corgi Jaguar E-Type
Quote from Wikipedia: "The Jaguar E-Type
(UK) or XK-E (US) is a British automobile, manufactured by Jaguar
between 1961 and 1974. Its combination of good looks, high
performance, and competitive pricing resulted in a great success for
Jaguar, with more than 70,000 E-Types being sold over its lifespan,
and became an icon of 1960s motoring. In March 2008, the Jaguar
E-Type ranked first in Daily Telegraph list of the "100 most
beautiful cars" of all time."
All you need to know is that Jags in general are fab and the E-Type is the best. It is the best looking car ever made, ever, and the 4.2 litre Jag XK straight six is the best, smoothest nicest engine ever.
I may be biased having owned three Jaguars, but of all the cars in this database, of all the cars in my 50 years of Observers Books of Automobiles, the Jag E-Type is just the best looking car and you need look no further for perfection.
