New Book Celebrates Every Car Lover’s Favourite 60s Icon

By Paul Joseph

Four decades after its launch, the Jaguar E-type is still at the top of most car enthusiasts’ Christmas lists.

An enduring example of design and engineering excellence, it is instantly recognisable to people around the world.

In production from 1961 to 1974, it was celebrated at the time as the most glamorous sports car of them all and is today one of the best-known icons of the ’60s.

If ever there was a deserving recipient of the title ‘Great Car,’ it’s the classically elegant Jaguar E-type.

Now the legendary model has been honoured in an extensively illustrated book, which describes its year by year history and development, including anecdotes and curiosities along the way.

Together with a sumptuous collection of colour photographs, it adds up to a feast of nostalgia that will delight all admirers of one of the great cars in history.

“JAGUAR E-TYPE” by Nigel Thorley is available from all good UK bookstores and online, priced at £40.
