Jaguar UK is set to roll out its limited production of the legendary classic cars: the E-type 60 Collection. The company will create six matched pairs of E-types to celebrate the iconic sports car’s 60th anniversary in 2021.
Each pair of E-type 60 Edition cars will hit the road as a tribute to two of the oldest and most famous Jaguar E-types namely, the ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’. These models played pivotal roles in the unveiling of the car at its world debut in Geneva, Switzerland in March 1961.
Every E-type 60 Edition built by the team at Jaguar’s Classic Works facility in Warwickshire will be an existing 1960s 3.8-litre E-type fully-restored to exclusive 60th anniversary tribute specification.
Each E-type 60 Collection pair will include one Flat Out Grey ‘9600 HP’ coupe and one Drop Everything Green ‘77 RW’ roadster, with unique paint formulations exclusively reserved for these cars. Each E-type 60 Edition will feature a number of 60th anniversary commemorative design details created in conjunction with Jaguar Design Director Julian Thomson.
“The E-type 60 Collection is a lasting tribute for E-type admirers, honouring the car’s legacy and the achievements of the team that created it – many of whom have descendants working for Jaguar Classic today, expertly restoring, maintaining and future-proofing enjoyment for generations to come,” says Dan Pink, Director of Jaguar Classic
Jaguar Classic is one of the worlds’ best sources of genuine parts and owner services for the E-type – from health-checks and sympathetic upgrades to restoring expertly selected examples to ‘Reborn’ specification, meticulously returning them to out of the factory-like condition.
