Synopsis:

The E-type is probably one of the most famous and well-loved sports car. When it first appeared in 1961, it was seen as a giant step forward in design, offering performance with sophistication, all clothed in a body of great beauty. This award-winning book, first published in 1989, provides a comprehensive history of this car. It describes the design, development, launch and reaction, with details of competition cars and racing results, and the various models and production changes with tabulated specifications.

About the Author:

A lifelong E-type enthusiast, Philip Porter has been writing about these cars for over 30 years and owns two fine examples: the oldest E-type in existence (the fixed-head coupe registered 9600 HP) and a roadster that appeared in the film The Italian Job. The author of 17 books on Jaguar subjects, he also runs the E-type Club, which serves owners and enthusiasts worldwide.
