The Jaguar E-Type celebrated 60 years in 2021. It’s widely considered to be one of the best-looking cars ever made. You can easily identify this E-Type Series 2, made from 1968 to 1971, by its open headlights, rather than the glass-covered ones from the Series 1 models.

The Jaguar E-Type Has a History as Rich as the Car Is Beautiful

A new book from TeNeues publishers traces the iconic auto’s heritage back to the Swallow Sidecar Co. of 1922.

Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type, the iconic coupe that Enzo Ferrari himself famously declared was the most beautiful car he’d ever seen. 

As part of the celebration, TeNeues publishers has released The Jaguar Book ($125), a 272-page hardback compendium that chronicles Jaguar history from before its founding as SS Cars Co. in 1933 to the Jaguar XK8 release of 2005. With 175 images photographed by René Staud and accompanying words by Jürgen Lewandowski, the book explains how the genesis of Jaguar’s most famous car, the E-Type (also called the Jaguar XKE for the North American market) can be traced to well before its glittering debut in 1961 to the birth of the company itself.
