The E-Type or Jaguar XK-E was manufactured in the U.K. from 1961 though 1975. This is not only one of the most attractively designed sports cars ever built and it is also very agile. The majority of vehicles until the mid-60’s have drum brakes, , live axles both front and rear coupled with unexceptional performance. The compelling E-Type is available in ’61, with disc brakes, rack and pinion steering plus independent front and rear suspension. This car will also turn in under 7 second times from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) and can achieve a top speed in excess of 150 mph (241.4 km/h). The E-Type shown below is a Series I and powered by a 42 liter Inline six cylinder engine that produces 265 HP (197.6 kW) delivering up to 283 ft-lb of torque to the wheels.
