Da Streetz: 1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Convertible



In the same parking lot where we found the completely tasteless BMW X6 with a bike rack, we find this well-maintained, British Racing Green, 1968 Jaguar E-Type. Also known as the XK-E, the E-Type is considered my many, Enzo Ferrari included, as the most beautiful car in the world. Being a 1968 model, this would have been the first year of the Series 2 prodcution for the E-Type. According to the Wikipedia entry, the Series 2 models featured “open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and taillights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged “mouth” and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes”, when compared to the earlier Series 1 models.
