Jaguar E-Type

A celebration of the world’s favourite ’60s icon

ABOUT THE BOOK
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.

In this fascinating, extensively illustrated book, Nigel Thorley describes the year by year history and development of the Jaguar E-Type, including anecdotes and curiosities along the way. Together with a sumptuous collection of colour photographs, this adds up to a feast of nostalgia that will delight all admirers of this most sinuous of cats.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nigel Thorley has been an enthusiast of the Jaguar marque all his life, his father and elder brother owning numerous examples of the brand. Nigel acquired his first Jaguar at the age of 18 and has only ever been without an example when he first got married (due to lack of funds)! At the time of writing he has owned over 70 Jaguars, so knows the cars intimately. He was a founder member and director of the largest Jaguar club, the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, and is still editing their monthly 140 page magazine. Nigel has also written over 20 titles on Jaguar topics, including You & Your Jaguar, Jaguar – All the Cars, Jaguar Mark 1 & 2 (also in the Great Cars series), and several Essential Buyer’s Guides published by Veloce.
