The Jaguar XK engine

In 1948, Jaguar presented a new roadster called the XK 120 at the London Motor Show. "XK" stood for the in-line six-cylinder DOHC engine, which was also new and was built until 1992.

All series models

The Series 1 and 2 E-Type was produced by Jaguar between 1961 and 1970 and is now one of the most legendary and sought-after classic cars. Just like the XK models, unrestored Jaguar E-Types are hard to find. However, if you want to maintain and preserve your classic in the best possible way, you've come to the right place!

Jaguar E-Type Series 1

The XK6 in-line six-cylinder produced 269 hp with a displacement of 3.8 litres, later 4.2 litres. With this, the car reached 100km/h in 7 seconds. These performance data convinced around 38,000 E-Type buyers at the time.  If you own this classic with an endless bonnet today, you will find everything you need to preserve it here.

Jaguar E-Type Series 2

Once an affordable sports car for brave men - today one of the most sought-after classics. Especially the sophisticated technology makes the Series 2 popular. Approximately 19,000 examples of the Series 2 were built. Special care is needed here, because one or the other weak point demands a lot of care during maintenance.

The E-Type and what makes it tick

Trellis frame at the front, self-supporting bodywork from the windscreen, an aerodynamic shape, folding front end, independent suspension and disc brakes on all wheels with inboard brakes at the rear - that is the Jaguar E-Type! A descendant of the racing car called the D-Type, it was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 15 March 1961.

The work of art was powered by the six-cylinder engine introduced in the XK in its highest performance level to date. This helped the E-Type to a top speed of over 240 km/h! It is estimated that more than half of the 73,000 E-Types built in three series still exist.

Prices depend on model and condition. The highest prices are achieved by the roadsters of the first series, the cheapest are the 2+2 coupés of series 2 and 3. As a rule, roadsters are more expensive than comparable coupés. Real restoration objects are hardly ever offered today.
