Jaguar E-Type Coupe, Lincoln Center, New York City, March 8, 1966

Summary

Great Britain's Jaguar turned heads in the 1960s with its E-Type sports car, sold as an XK-E in North America. Disc brakes, an independent front and rear suspension and a racing-inspired monocoque body gave the car technical credentials to match its beautiful appearance. For 1966, the longer 2+2 coupe seen here joined the convertible and coupe already in Jaguar's lineup.
