Jaguar debuted the E-Type in 1961 and soon earned the moniker "Sexiest Car Of The Year." Sporting a long and low silhouette unlike any other, Jaguar's flagship sports car is revered to this day. The E-Type would feature a revolutionary front subframe that carries the engine and is directly bolted onto the body tub. This starkly contrasted with the body-on-frame vehicles prevalent at the time and granted the sub-3,000lb E-Type 150mph performance. This pristine 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 XK-E bears 33,837 miles on the odometer. It's a piece of automotive art and history and a worthy addition to any collection.
Sporting a beautifully Sixties Willow Green paint job, this 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 XK-E exudes charm from every curve and crease. The intricate wire wheels, delicate chrome details, and muscular rear haunches combine to make something truly charming. You could park this car in a living room and spend hours gazing at it. From the pictures, we see that the head and tail lamps are in excellent condition as well. A luggage rack adorns the rear, and we observe a black convertible top for when the weather gets lairy. Inside, it's a snug affair for two passengers, but you will never feel cramped. The passenger has very little to do other than sit down, shut up, and hold on. The driver gets all the thrills courtesy of a wood-rimmed steering wheel, metal pedals, stubby gear lever, and beautiful Smiths gauges. We also spot a push-button radio in the center console but are unsure of its functionality. A row of switches above the radio controls the headlamps, wipers, ventilation fan, and hazard indicators. Simplicity and straightforwardness at its best, really.
When you're done ogling over the beautiful curves of this 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 XK-E, it's time to get in and fire up the soulful 4.2-liter in-line six-cylinder engine. Settling into a purr with a hint of a growl, things turn magical with every prod of the throttle. You can expect over 250 horsepower from the stout engine, sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. It's peak driving nirvana to steer one of these down a winding road, top-down and engine singing through its rev range.
