March 2021 marks British car maker Jaguar Land Rover’s 60th anniversary of the iconic E-type. To honour the car, Jaguar Classic is creating six limited-edition matched pairs of restored 3.8 E-types with specification that includes commemorative detailing and exclusive paint colours, paying tribute to two of the most famous examples: ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’
Each pair of E-type 60 Edition cars pay tribute to two of the oldest and most famous Jaguar E-types of all: ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’, which played pivotal roles in the unveiling of the car at its world debut in Geneva, Switzerland in March 1961.
An Opalescent Gunmetal Grey 3.8-litre Fixed-Head Coupe registered ‘9600 HP’ was one of the first two E-types unveiled to specially-invited guests at the Parc des Eaux Vives.
Every E-type 60 Edition built by the team at Jaguar’s Classic Works facility in Warwickshire, United Kingdom will be an existing 1960s 3.8-litre E-type fully-restored to exclusive 60th anniversary tribute specification. Each E-type 60 Collection pair will include one Flat Out Grey ‘9600 HP’ coupe and one Drop Everything Green ‘77 RW’ roadster, with unique paint formulations exclusively reserved for these cars. Each E-type 60 Edition will feature a number of 60 th anniversary commemorative design details created in conjunction with Jaguar Design Director Julian Thomson.
Synonymous with the revolutionary zeitgeist of the Swinging Sixties, E-types were owned by celebrities including Steve McQueen, Brigitte Bardot, Frank Sinatra, George Harrison, Tony Curtis and Britt Ekland. And, thanks to the beauty of its sculptural forms, its functionality and its impact on design, an E-type became only the third car to join The Museum of Modern
Art’s design collection in 1996.
The E-type 60 Collection is available to order now. Customers interested in this unrepeatable opportunity should contact Jaguar Classic directly:
