Facelift models can also enjoy the new look - including the SUV E-Pace, which has been on the British market since 2018.

A rare chance to own two perfect early E-Types.

Two of the earliest examples of the legendary Jaguar E-Type are being offered at the Silverstone Classic Live Online Auction on July 31 - August 2 with no reserve.

Jaguar-Land Rover Will Build Electrified SVO Performance Models

  Jaguar-Land Rover Will Build Electrified SVO Performance Models Expect to see some Special Vehicle Operations EVs and PHEVs debut in the next few years, but we don't know exactly when.And if you were expecting to see a spiced up version of the Jaguar i-Pace, we’ll have to burst your bubble, because there are no plans for such a model. One much more likely candidate to become an SVO model is the upcoming XJ sedan, a model that will only be sold with an all-electric powertrain.

The pair of 1961 models form part of the SA-30 Collection and both retain all of their original features.

The coupe for sale was purchased by Paul Webb in the 1990s, who was searching for the "holy grail" of a perfect early model E-Type. Chassis 885249 was just the 249th fixed head built, being produced on November 30, 1961. It was originally supplied new to Abbey-Scherer Co, El Monte, California and was still with its original owner when Webb acquired it.

At that time it had covered just 49,000 miles (78,858 kilometers), having been off the road since 1985, and was amazingly preserved thanks to the ideal Californian climate. It also retained its original registration plate and original brake master cylinders with their correct dated tags.

Jaguar E-Type Lays Dormant for 40 Years, Gets Glorious Restoration

  Jaguar E-Type Lays Dormant for 40 Years, Gets Glorious Restoration We love barn finds, but even the perfect barn find could take a lot of work to properly revive. Take this 1964 Jaguar E-Type, an example from the middle of the Series 1 production run with the smaller 3.8-liter XK inline-six that was parked in 1979. It looks pretty good in the barn photos—dusty, dirty, but relatively dry and complete—but nothing sits in the U.K. for four decades without needing some attention. 1/26 SLIDES © Automobile Magazine Staff 1964-Jaguar-E-Type-Barn-Find-2.jpg 2/26 SLIDES © Automobile Magazine Staff 1964-Jaguar-E-Type-Barn-Find-3.

In 1997, the car made its way to the UK where it was retrimmed by Suffolk and Turley, the original beige leather needing to be replaced having been dried out by the Californian heat.

A few years later Webb managed to add a matching roadster model to his collection. The drop-top was manufactured on September 25, 1961, the first month that the car was released to public buyers in the UK.

This particular car was supplied new to an R Condon in Phoenix, Arizona and again was in a remarkably original condition, having only had a light refresh of the exterior paint. It returned to the UK in 2004 where it too got an interior retrim.

The current owner of the pair first saw them in 2004, but didn't acquire the cars for another eight years. They recently underwent restoration work after years in private museums and are now in running and driving condition.

While both have been together for a number of years, both are being sold as separate lots at the upcoming auction.

"These two E-Types are just the best you could possibly ask for. To have the opportunity to own two of the earliest cars in this condition is an extremely rare opportunity," said Nick Whale, Silverstone Auctions managing director

"Both of these cars have been cherished by the two previous owners, who knew the importance of these cars.

"To own two with the same color bodywork and interior is quite rare and Silverstone Auctions are extremely honored to have been asked to sell them for our client, a well-respected collector."

Adorable Amphicar 770 Convertible Sails Onto The Auction Block .
Don't buy a car and a boat because this vehicle does both. If you're looking to make a big entrance at the local beach next spring, then check out this 1967 Amphicar 770 Convertible that's crossing the auction block at Mecum's sale in Dallas from October 15 to 17. These cars are an interesting footnote in German automotive history for the vehicle's ability to function as a normal road car and then slide into the water as a functional boat. The Amphicar made its debut in 1961 at the New York Auto Show. The big fins at the rear evoked the look of many American cars at the time.
