Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961 and immediately hailed by Enzo Ferrari as ‘the most beautiful car in the world’, the sports car pin-up became an instant trend-setter in the swinging sixties.Over its 14-year production lifetime no fewer than 13 different models were introduced and exquisite examples of each and every single one of those will be glistening on the ‘Catwalk’ display at The Classic.
Organised by the ever-enthusiastic Jaguar E-type Club, the comprehensive ‘Catwalk’ will put the spotlight on both equally attractive fixed head coupe and convertible body styles, ranging from the early Series 1 trailblazers (powered by the Le Mans winning 3.8-litre, straight-six engine) right up to the final Series 3 evolution. Launched in 1971, the V12 hearted Series 3 is celebrating its own 50th birthday in 2021.
"The Jaguar E-type Club is delighted to be a part of the E-type 60th birthday celebrations at The Classic. We can't imagine a better way to enjoy a summer's weekend than by paying tribute to these game-changing icons in style. Club members are very much looking forward to sashaying on the Catwalk, exuding style in the track parade and spending time with fellow E-type and classic enthusiasts," said Louise Gibbs the club's General Manager.
