"The body's subtle, welling curves and depressions reflect carefully calculated geometries based on the ellipse. The most prominent feature-the long, rojecting hood-is modeled with a distinctive 'power bulge' that runs down the hood's center to accommodate the powerful engine. Louvered air-intake panels penetrate the otherwise smooth surface. The hood curves down to a grille-less nose that sucks in air to cool the engine. The gently swelling fenders terminate in glass cowl headlights that are seamlessly encapsulated into the body. The view of the car's contours is as compelling to the driver as to the passerby."
These are the words that the Museum of Modern Art in New York City uses to describe one of its larger acquisitions. The sculpture is described as having a "steel body: 47" x 641/2" x 14? 71/2"." It is a Jaguar E-Type Roadster that has been credited to Sir William Lyons, alcolm Sayer, nd William M. Heynes. No one can deny that their magnum opus, his car, as not sunk as indelibly as the most famous of paintings into the world's consciousness. The E-Type is, uite simply, ne of the most famous and instantly recognizable mechanical shapes ever created.
The design of the car was birthed from the D-Type, full-out racing car with sensuously curved aerodynamic styling that had achieved tremendous success in international competition. As it required a new, ompetitive production model, aguar's management set about developing the design into a car that was suitable for road use. The famous, eline curves were developed by Sayer, trained aerodynamicist, sing wind tunnel testing and aircraft principles. They were constructed around a lightweight monocoque that had a tubular sub-frame to carry the engine, ront suspension and steering, nd an independent rear axle.
The E-Type debuted in Geneva in 1961, nd it became a smashing success, ecause it offered so much for relatively little. It was no more expensive than most other sports cars, ut it was more beautiful than the priciest offerings from other manufacturers, nd it had 150-mph performance with outstanding road manners. While the design would evolve over its 13 years of production, t never ceased being as beautiful as when it was first created.
The Roadster offered here is documented by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust as having been delivered new through Jaguar Cars, f New York, n September 6th, 965! This later Series I model retains the desirable covered headlamps, hich are appreciated by both MoMA's curators and Jaguar enthusiasts, nd incorporates the desirable 4.2-liter engine, ith its improved power and torque resulting in a perfect storm of beauty and brawn, hich is mated to a four-speed transmission.
The original, atching-numbers 4.2-liter engine (number 7E5305-9, ated to gearbox number EJ4410) have recently been serviced and reconditioned. This car has recently had a full show quality paint job, ew weather stripping, ew convertible top, ew interior, ew exhaust and much more.
Few E-Types have ever been restored to this standard. This Black Beauty is not just another E-Type; it is a world-class Jaguar with attention to detail that is as striking as its very shape.
