The Jaguar E-type, or Jaguar XK-E for the North American market, is a British sports car produced in between 1961 and 1974. The car has become an icon of the motoring world because of its aesthetics, high performance and competitive pricing. The E-type was based on the Jaguar D-Type racing car. The car had rear-wheel drive and a engine located in the front.

It was sold as a 2-seater coupe and convertible. Later in 1966, a 4-seater coupe version was introduced. It was able to reach speeds of 240 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 60 in about 7 seconds. It had uniform construction, disc brakes and independent front and rear suspension.

The Jaguar E-Type Series 2 was produced from 1968-1971. Series 2 introduced a number of design changes. The most striking feature of the exterior is the absence of glass headlight covers. Other US-inspired changes included the steering lock. The car was powered by a 4.2-litre I6 engine with 246 hp (183 kW). A total of 18809 examples were produced.
