In-game descriptionEdit

"A landmark sportscar that hinted at a new era of cars with its advanced ideas."


The origins of Jaguar trace all the way back to 1922, when Sir William Lyons began gathering collaborators to start producing a motorcycle sidecar known as the "combination".

By 1961, Jaguar had become the premiere British car maker, solidifying that position with its new 2-seat sports car called the E-Type.

For the engine, Jaguar used its trusty 3781-cc DOHC inline-6 with triple SU carbs that was used in the XK series since 1949. In E-Type trim, it produced 265 HP at 5500 rpm. But everything else about the car was the result of forward thinking. The E-Type was the last model with which Lyons, already withdrawing from the forefront, would be directly involved with. The long, wide, and low body proportion was inspired by the C- and D-Type racing cars, characterized by its curvaceous shape and flowing lines. In addition to the convertible, the E-Type line included a fixed head coupe with a side-opening tailgate.

The E-Type was a light car, weighing only 1219 kg. This helped make the car especially quick and agile. Top speed was 130 mph, and it ran from zero to 62.1 mph in 7.2 seconds.

Given this performance, the roughly $25,000 price tag at the time was extremely reasonable. In all, 7,820 E-Types were produced through 1964, and of those, about 90 percent crossed the Atlantic Ocean and landed in the United States.
