Jaguar builds twelve replicas of the very first E-Types ever

The Jaguar E-Type debuted in Switzerland in 1961. Two copies of the British sports car were exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show: a car with registration number 9600 HP and one with registration 77 RW. The first was a gray Fixed-Head Coupé with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine. On the night before the unveiling, Jaguar’s PR manager Bob Berry drove it from Coventry to Geneva at high speed. It arrived just minutes before the official unveiling. The response from the press and the public has been overwhelming. That’s why Berry called England and instructed test driver Norman Dewis to quickly drive a second car to Switzerland: a dark green E-Type Roadster, the 77 RW.

Jaguar E-Type 60 only for sale as a duo

Jaguar Classic Works now builds six sets of two replicas (six coupes and six roadsters). They are based on existing E-Types with 3.8-liter engine, which are being completely restored and rebuilt to 60th Anniversary specification. Interested parties cannot buy just one car. Jaguar is selling the twelve cars in pairs. It is not yet known what an E-type 60 Collection will cost, but it will undoubtedly be a lot. Aston Martin did something similar with the DB4 GT Zagato and DBS GT Zagato. You could also only buy it as a set.
