  • A car Enzo Ferrari called “the most beautiful car ever made”, the Jaguar E-Type is considered by many to be one of the most gorgeous automobiles ever built. It took the automotive world by storm upon its unveiling at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and still continues to turn heads to this day. Underneath its gorgeous, aerodynamic exterior were several state-of-the-art features. Four-wheel independent suspension was at all four corners along with four-wheel disc brakes that were mounted inward of the axles in the rear. A rack-and-pinion unit provided responsive steering and helped to make the E-type one of the best handling cars of the era. Power was initially provided by the 3.8 litre straight-six from the XK150S. Producing 265 horsepower, the E-type was capable of more than 150mph. Combined, these features made the E-type one of the most celebrated sports cars ever produced with incredible power, handling, braking, and style that rivaled anything else Europe produced. With such timeless appeal and praised appearance, it is no wonder why the Series 1 E-type roadster is one of only a handful of motorcars on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Coveted in its day by the most sporting of drivers, the E-type still remains one of the most sought-after cars in history, especially in Series I Roadster form.

    The magnificent 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Litre “Flat Floor” Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous factory correct Carmen Red over a Biscuit leather interior and black folding convertible top. This early flat floor example comes with welded bonnet louvers making this the perfect Series I Roadster to add to any premier collection. Driven just 2,000 miles since a complete 4-year no-expense-spared show-quality restoration by Marquis specialist Greg Weldy and is now ready for its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this exquisite and extremely rare 1961 Jaguar E-type Series I 3.8 Litre “Flat Floor” Roadster to the most demanding collector investor or enthusiast who desires to own one of the very best.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
