E-Type Delight

E-Type Delight

 

 

Built between 1961 and 1974, the E-Type Jaguar was voted one of the world’s most beautiful cars. This gloriously red E-Type appeared at the Classic Car Rally in Kirkcudbright on 25th August.

They are a most sensuous piece of engineering and look remarkably stylish, even after 50 years. I think that they were designed using the golden section or Fibonacci ratio which accounts for the elegant proportions.

The second prototype was sold for $957,000 in 2008. This particular car seems to be a series 2 that was built from 1969 to 1971…….and is in superb condition…………..mouth wateringly nice.
