HISTORY OF THE XKE SERIES I BY JAGUAR: 265 bhp at 5,500rpm, 3,781cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder, three Weber SU HD8 carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96″ The E-Type is considered by many to be one of those rare gifts to the automotive world. The brilliant car was the result of a very passionate team with a very clear focus. William Lyons, founder and president of Jaguar, headed the team. Lyons had a keen eye for style and a sense of taste that became the cornerstone of Jaguar but he was not a trained engineer. In 1950, Lyons employed Malcolm Sayer, a brilliant mathematician who had formal training as an engineer and a passion for automobiles. Under the direction of Lyons, Sayer shaped the body of the E-Type, thus creating what has often been argued as the most beautiful design. Jaguar had taken what it learned on the track and applied it the new model, E-Type. With its monocoque passenger compartment/tail section, tube-framed engine bay and tilting bonnet, it clearly descended from the D-Type. But its well-appointed interior, civilized 3.8L XK engine (directly from the XK 150S) and compliant suspension made it an ideal two-place touring car. The E-Types design is an artful blend of race car and road car. Not since the introduction of the XK 120 at the London show of 1948 had any sports car produced such a stir or so much favorable comment. In retrospect, these first generation cars are referred to as Series 1 cars. They are highly prized by enthusiasts, particularly those fitted with the early 3.8L drive train and Moss gearbox, with their racing style bucket seats, early dash panels and other unique features. Later cars are criticized for their greater weight, less agile feel and interiors offering more luxury than sporting influences
