Description

1965 XKE JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER
Very Solid Original Sheet Metal
The Jaguar XKE was introduced to the automotive world in 1961 after years of speculation. The brainchild of Williams Lyons and a passionate team of advisors and designers, it was aptly named E-Type, as it was a clear descendent from the accomplished C and D-Types that had been dominating racetracks. Its other name, XKE, was evidence that it also possessed the positive qualities of Jaguar’s XK series.
Jaguar took what it learned on the track and applied it to the E-Type. The monocoque passenger compartment, tube framed engine bay and tilting hood clearly came from the D-Type. The XKE exhibited 265bhp at 5,500rmp, a 3,781cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, three carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front and rear suspension, four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes with rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce unsprung weight, and importantly, it has a fully independent suspension for all four wheels. In addition to being an engineering stroke of brilliance, the E-Type was one of the most attractive, sensuous and evocative designs ever to grace an automobile chassis-as quoted by one automotive critic “sex on wheels”. Upon its introduction, and still today, it continues to win numerous awards for the most beautiful production car ever produced. It was also one of the fastest production cars on the road in 1961 at close to 160 miles per hour.
