  Jaguar E-Type

The only car with three wipers

Although it dates from 1961 inspires its form still today. There are always in the model history such successful examples where the successors have it difficult. The price of the car increases when the follower appears. A well known example would be the also English TR 6. Even otherwise the Jaguar E has something of a diva if one consider its susceptibility to failure and the elimination of it.

Not always the most reliable

The monocoque construction one can image already, when you see how almost the entire front of the car's outer skin is folded forward and the engine uncovers. Unfortunately this is only partly possible because otherwise the nose would scratch on the ground. To compensate the rear door folds to the left side. Originally a six-cylinder in-line engine was installed with 3.8 liters of displacement, in 1964 replaced by a 4.2-liter engine with similar performance data, but more torque at low engine speed range. In 1971 it gets then as highlight the 5.4-liter twelve-cylinder with 201 kW (276 hp) at 5850 rpm. For this purpose he had to be extended forward again, what in 1966 was yet done backwards about the wheelbase. There develops in the two-seater two auxiliary seats. In 1964 the Jaguar E-Type was completed by a racing version and towards end of its model running period by a convertible (roadster).
