The Jaguar E-Type really needs no introduction. It's as iconic as Sinatra, and every bit as good looking as Marilyn - but not nearly as fussy as either of them. For that reason, we won't bore readers with the regurgitated information about how its straight-six cylinder engine helped give the marque multiple victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, or how a man named Enzo named the E-Type "the most beautiful car in the world."
