The Jaguar E-Type Roadster presented here is an early 1968 model, it is one of the few Jaguar E-Types that are today popularly known as Series I 1/2 cars as they utilize the open headlight bonnets but are otherwise are very similar to the Series I cars retaining the very favorable 4.2 liter engine. Inspiration from the D-Type is unmistakable, as the Jaguar E-Type had a monocoque passenger compartment, a tube framed engine bay and a tilting hood. The XKE had four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes with the rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce unsprung weight and, most importantly, fully independent suspension on all four wheels.
