Jaguar Classic has presented the first of six matching pairs of the limited E-Type 60 Collection for the 60th birthday of the E-Type. The twelve models will be rebuilt on the basis of the existing 3.8-liter E-Type Series 1 and completely restored in accordance with the specifications of the exclusive 60th anniversary edition. In authentic colors, they are a reminder of the spectacular world premiere of the iconic sports car on March 15, 1961 in Geneva. The public reaction to the E-Type Coupé, which was initially brought to Switzerland for test drives in the vicinity of the trade fair, was so overwhelming that Jaguar ordered a second pre-production car, a roadster, to follow from Coventry to Geneva overnight. Six decades later, the E-Type 60 Collection is now appearing as a homage to the legendary duo: The Coupé “9600 HP” in Opalescent Gunmetal Gray, at that time “flat out” by Bob Berry circled across the Alps, and the Roadster “ 77 RW ”in British Racing Green, which followed with Norman Dewis one day later, after he had been ordered to drop everything so that he could be punctually at Lac Léman the next morning. .
