Drive the classic Jaguar E-Type - The most beautiful car ever made

Drive the classic Jaguar E-Type - The most beautiful car ever made - News

The thrill of driving a piece of classic British motoring history is like nothing else. Get into the classic British roadster, the Morgan Plus 8, MG TC, Aston Martin DB5, Land Rover, Lotus Elise or Austin Healey and you are transported to that halcyon era of post-war British motorsport.

For many though the Jaguar E-Type is not just a British Classic at all, It's THE British car, the greatest ever built. When Enzo Ferrari calls a car "the most beautiful car ever made" you know this car must be very special indeed.

The Jaguar E-Type burst onto the scene in 1961 and immediately asked questions of Ferrari and Aston Martin as far as the natural order of things. The E-Type not only looked as good as any Ferrari, it's claimed top speed of 150mph meant it could also live with one on the road and at a fraction of the cost.

The E-Type evolved from a car with serious race-winning pedigree in the D-Type which had won the 24 Hours of Le Mans over three consecutive years (1955–1957). The racing monocoque bodywork and tubular framework formed the basis of the E-type along with disc brakes, rack and pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension.

A motoring icon was born and years of cars with mediocre performance were put to the sword. The E-Type would go from 0-60 in sub 7 seconds, leaving the competition in the dust.

Owning an E-Type is for the deep-pocketed, but driving one is certainly not and for under £150 you could get behind the wheel of this era-defining classic. Get in the driving seat of this classic for a feast of sensations that cannot fail to put a smile on your face. Here are our best Jaguar E-Type Driving Experiences:
