Description Introduced in 3.8-litre form in 1961, the E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. The newcomer’s design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure, while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed, but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Taller drivers though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of foot wells (and other, more minor, modifications) early in 1962. But of all the versions of Jaguar’s long-lived and much-loved sports car, it is the very early ‘flat floor’ 3.8-litre cars built prior to February 1962 which, for many enthusiasts, remain the most desirable. One of very few ‘Flat-Floor’ roadsters made, this incredibly restored example was manufactured in November 1961 and delivered to Italy. Its history is well known and the car always remained in Italy until 2017 when it was imported to Germany and subsequently restored to its current impeccable condition. As you would expect the restoration has been well-documented. Still retaining its original moss gearbox and offered with a classic data condition report where it scores a remarkable 1- with a valuation of €275,000. Offered with but a fraction of this as its reserve, this beautiful and first iteration of the iconic E-type is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.
