FOR SALE: 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster

The Jaguar E-Type easily makes any list of the ten most beautiful cars ever made, but even among E-Types there are extra special examples... like this gorgeous, low-mileage red Series 1 Roadster.


Year and Make/Model: 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster

Engine: 4.2L straight-6 petrol

Transmission: Manual

Mileage: 35 459 km

Colour: Red

Location: Cape Town


First shown to the world in 1961, the Malcolm Sayer-designed E-Type stunned even the fiercest critic (Enzo Ferrari), who was quoted as describing the new Jaguar as "the most beautiful car ever made." Praise doesn't come much higher than that!

Series 1 E-Types were produced from 1961 until 1967, initially with a 3.8L engine, and later with the 4.2L straight-six, as featured here. A Series 1 Roadster fitted with the 4.2L straight-six engine is generally believed to be the most desirable E-Type of all, and that is exactly what this example is!

This red beauty has been cared for by the same owner for about 20 years and is in excellent all-round condition. Its odo shows less than 36 000km and it still has its original paint and the interior is completely original, down to the radio! This represents a rare opportunity to buy one of the finest examples of one of the most beautiful cars ever produced.
