The 1961 JAGUAR E-TYPE said by Enzo Ferrari to be ‘the most beautiful car ever made’, was a British sports car manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. An icon of the motoring world still today, the E-Type claimed a 241 km/h (150mph) top speed, under 7 sec 0 to 60 mph acceleration, unitary construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension. Based on Jaguar's D-Type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three consecutive years, it employed a novel racing design principle with a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolting directly onto the body tub. No ‘ladder frame’ chassis, as was common at the time, was needed and as such the first cars weighed just 1315kg (2900 lb)!
