Jaguar E-Type SI OTS
A Cool Classic of Cool Classics: the Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 OTS. Our OTS was restored a long time ago and is original Dutch. We found her with the second owner, who has owned her since 1987 (!). In those 34 years she has done what she does best; drive, amaze and give out smiles.
The long nose, thickly set hips and sensual lines come into their own with Gunmetal Grey and a red leather interior. A neat lady, but sneaking eye contact with lace at the Christmas table while you are in serious conversation with father-in-law. Neat, but on the edge.
The E-type Series I was introduced in Europe on March 15, 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show and in the United States in April the same year at the New York Motor Show. When the car was first shown, Enzo Ferrari, called it “The most beautiful car ever made. To this day, he is right!
The Series 1 received a 3.8 liter 6-in-line engine under the hood that came from the XK150S, a famous and already proven block. All E-types received independent suspension and power disc brakes on all four wheels, two unusual features for the time. The 3.8L versions had leather-trimmed bucket seats and a centrally placed brushed aluminum instrument panel. Take a seat in the red leather cockpit, look out over the bullet-shaped hood and grab the sporty gear lever. Only then, you’ll understand why we too, have this one on our personal favorite list. Will we see you soon?I'm interested in this object
