The Jaguar E-Type, or the Jaguar XK-E for the North American market, is a British sports car that was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1974. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-Type's claimed 150 mph (241 km/h) top speed, sub-7-second 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration, unitary construction, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes.
The E-Type was introduced as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupé form (FHC or Fixed Head Coupé) and as a two-seater convertible "roadster" (OTS or Open Two-Seater). A "2+2" four-seater version of the coupé, with a lengthened wheelbase, was released in 1966.
With a completion date of 23 October 1967 this is a late Series 1 car and is fitted with the 4.2 XK engine .
