Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar Type E succeeded the XK150, the last of the XK series, and was the fastest production car in the world (240 km/h) at the time.
Production ran from 1961 to 1973 and included 3 models (convertible, coupé and 2+2) and 3 series.

From 1964, with the switch to 4.2, the bucket seats gave way to more comfortable reclining seats and the dashboard and centre console were covered in black vinyl instead of plugged aluminium, the Moss gearbox was replaced by a synchronised Jaguar gearbox which was easier and quicker to handle.

Since then, its current owner used it in the Lyon countryside only when the weather was good, so that it now only has 55,500 miles on the odometer. Nevertheless, the car was started and warmed up at least once or twice a month, even when it was not on the road. Today, this Jaguar Type E Roadster is in superb condition. The bright red paint offers a very nice rendering, the alignment of the sashes are very good, the chromes are in excellent condition, right down to the wire wheels. The interior, although old, is in a
