In celebration of the E Type Jaguar, this special limited edition of 100 numbered cases takes its inspiration from this fascinating period in British motoring history.
Our case design pays tribute to some of the historic elements that made the E Type Jaguar such a sixties icon.
Malcolm Sayer was one of the first engineers to apply aircraft aerodynamics to racing car design. He first started working at Jaguar Cars in Coventry, England in 1950. One of his major contributions was to introduce the use of slide rules and seven figure algorithms to work out formulas for drawing curves. Using this method he translated his designs into the C type Jaguar racing car in 1951 which won Le Mans in the same year.
From this success he developed the D type, which won Le Mans in 1953. Malcolm was then given the brief to produce a road-going sports car based on the construction of the winning D type and in 1961 the Jaguar E type was born, becoming an icon of the sixties and early seventies.
On first sight, Enzo Ferrari proclaimed it “The most beautiful car in the world.”
