Jaguar Classic reveals E-type 60 Collection: 60th anniversary tribute to the iconic sports car

- On March 15 Jaguar will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic E-type, which was an instant sensation from launch and synonymous with the Swinging Sixties
- Jaguar Classic is creating six limited-edition matched pairs of restored 3.8 E-types inspired by the iconic ‘9600 HP’ and ’77 RW’ examples from the sports car’s 1961 Geneva launch — each pair known as the E-type 60 Collection
- Six ‘9600 HP’ inspired E-type 60 Edition fixed-head coupés are finished in unique Flat Out Grey paintwork with Smooth Black leather interior and 1961 tribute details
- Six E-type 60 Edition roadsters mirror ’77 RW’ with unique Drop Everything Green paintwork and a Suede Green leather interior and 1961 tribute details
- Bespoke design elements include a commemorative E-type 60 logo, which adorns the bonnet badge, fuel cap, chassis plate and clock face in the tachometer developed in conjunction with Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director
- Custom-designed engraved centre consoles by artist King Nerd celebrate the epic road trips undertaken by Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis and PR man Bob Berry to get the E-types to the 1961 launch
- Each E-type 60 Edition features a specially-developed close-ratio five-speed manual gearbox, mated to the 3.8-litre
