The Jaguar E-Type was one of the most successful and beautiful cars to come from the post-war boom in sports car manufacturing and export to the United States. The huge numbers of GI's based in the UK over the war had developed a taste for the British built MG TC, which spawned later imports such as Jaguar XK 120, Aston martin DB2 and the Jaguar E-Type.
In this Infographic we reproduce a vintage poster of this British classic car in its first iteration (Series 1) This version is notable for the covered lights which were removed in later versions. The top speed of 150mph was something of a breakthrough with many sports cars of the time having a top speed some 50mph less. Built in Coventry the 3.8-litre engine could power elegant sports car to 60mph in just 6.4 seconds. The manufacture owed much to the racing pedigree of the Le Mans winning D-Type and so impressed were Ferrari that it was proclaimed 'The most beautiful car ever made.'
