Jaguar E-Type Roadster

If there was one brand new car, I’d buy right now (with a little bit of your generosity), it would be a Jaguar XK It would be like buying at the same the latest contemporary piece of art and a fresco of the Sistine Chapel!

Yes, because there are too few model who kept what made their glorious ancestor win.

But you  can obviously go for her ancestor from the sixties and seventees , the Jaguar E-Type … but please don’t purchase the wall covering from the picture below !

It was great success for Jaguar, over seventy thousand E-Types were sold during its lifespan. Another proofwas added (if needed) March 2008, when the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in Daily Telegraph list of the “100 most beautiful cars” of all time.

So, if you’re looking for an affordable and smooth ride in a convertible (yes Spring is coming soon), we highly recommand you a V12 E-Type from 1971 or 1975. It will cost you around 45 000 € for a european edition. For the price you’ll have a proper gearbox, a 272 hp V12 and this amazingly eternal bodyshape!
