The Jaguar E-Type was produced in 1961 to match and outperform the other sports cars in those years. It was immediately noticed by enthusiasts for its revolutionary design and exceptional driving and aesthetic characteristics. It was designed by Malcom Sayer in coupe and Open Two Seater versions. With its graceful and robust curved lines it was so successful that 3 series were produced. The first series was presented with important innovations compared to its sisters. Totally restored, For the first time, the car had a modern monocoque with an additional front frame. It was the first car manufacturer to use disc brakes on 4 wheels. Under the bonnet roared an in-line 6-cylinder engine, connected to a mechanical 4-speed MOSS gearbox.
The long front bonnet also included the mudguard, which made it necessary to completely overturn the front part in order to gain access to the engine. The headlights perfectly harmonized with the sinuous lines of the machine were keeled. It had a panoramic windscreen with 3 separate wipers. At the rear, the double exhaust pipes were positioned under the license plate. The interior was also very sporty with small, round seats without headrests. The wooden steering wheel was large and the car was started by an aluminum button.
Our rare example dates back to 1961 and is one of the few cars that were produced with a flat floor at the footrest, and for this reason identified as "Flat Floor”. The extraordinarily elegant lines are highlighted by its blue colour combined with wonderful red interiors. The car was originally registered in the USA, then in 2008 it was imported to Italy where it has undergone a major restoration in all its parts, bodywork (originally cream), interior (originally black), all the mechanical parts and various components. The entire restoration has been extensively documented by photographic material. The car is registered in the ASI è register and has been assigned gold number plate no. 43862.
