Conceived and developed as an open sports car, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in coupé form. The car caused a sensation - spontaneous applause breaking out at the unveiling - with its instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. Aerodynamically, the coupé was superior to the roadster and the better Grand Tourer, enjoying as it did a marginally higher top speed and the considerable convenience of a generously sized luggage platform accessed via the side-hinged rear door. Its six-cylinder 'XK' engine was the 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. In October 1964, this was superseded by the 4.2-litre engine; a more user-friendly all-synchromesh gearbox and superior Lockheed brake servo forming part of the improved specification together with the bigger, torquier engine. Apart from '4.2' badging, the car's external appearance was unchanged but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements, chiefly to the electrical and cooling systems, and to the seating arrangements. Top speed remained unchanged at around 150mph, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved flexibility.

Recently imported from the USA, this Series 1 4.2-litre coupé is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. EU import duties have been paid.

Récemment importée des États-Unis, cette 4.2-Litre « série 1 » est vendue pour restauration et strictement dans son état. Les droits d'importation en Europe ont été acquittés.
