Jaguar E Type 60th Anniversary. Good or bad?

Mar 16, 2021,11:00 AM
 

Jaguar made 6 pairs of E Type Convertible and Coupé which cannot be sold separately, for more than half a million Euros. 


The body is of course all new, the engine has been revisited ( 6 Cylinders 265 HP ) and a new 5 speeds manual gearbox. 











And what an interior!!!



I regret that we don't have the choice between the coupé and the convertible, which would make it more... " affordable ". 

I would also have loved to have the choice between 6, 8 or 12 Cylinders. 

But I find them very desirable. 

Personally, I would go for the convertible. 

You? 

Best,

Nicolas

That flow of body lines on the back is mesmerizing.

I believe the original was once voted the best design of century.

The convertible.

Usually I'm not a fan of convertibles, but with this Jaguar hit a homerun back in the days! The coupe is beautiful, but the convertible sensually beautiful!

Convertible but ....

With hard top!... best of both no? Anyway, I like the pairs, but as a purist, I like my classics as close to the original as possible, not a fan of new configurations. Restorations are already a departure as long as they stay faithful to original specs. M...  

Yes!!!

As I have the Roadster I’ll stick with it.

Definitely roadster for me

8-5 then. Merci, Emil.

Indeed! ;)

Coupe

Gorgeous! 8-8.

 
 By: amanico : March 16th, 2021-14:38

Neither. Can't afford it...

 
 By: patrick_y : March 16th, 2021-14:39
But I'd go for a coupe, since it'd be cheaper, and since I can make Amanico so happy that he can finally get his convertible. But sorry, Amanico, I don't think I can afford the coupe!

9-8 for the Coupé!

 
 By: amanico : March 16th, 2021-14:47

I'm pretty much always going to vote coupe.

 
 By: patrick_y : March 18th, 2021-11:10
Mercedes 300 SL; coupe with the Gullwing or convertible with the normal doors? Gullwing! Mercedes SLR; Coupe! Mercedes SLS; Coupe! As the convertible doesn't have the Gullwing doors! I'm not a huge fan of the wind in my hair and the noise of a convertible... 

It would be the coupe for me.

I almost universally gravitate towards hardtops when there's an option. I'm one of those oddballs that actually like the BMW Z3 shoe, I mean coupe.

Coupé for me

 
 By: agyzace : March 16th, 2021-14:50

Coupe for me.

A very elegant car ...

 
 By: kjkt3 : March 18th, 2021-03:08

It is! ;)

I'd take whichever could be delivered first

 
 By: jerry6 : March 19th, 2021-11:54
you just can't improve on the looks of the E-type , don't mind the six as long as it does not leak like my 1966 did . My buddy had the 2 coupe quite the car would top out at about 140mph which was good back in the early 70's that 12 cyl was silky smooth

I usually prefer a coupe

 
 By: Gelato Monster : March 26th, 2021-19:05
But in this case convertible I would prefer V12
