This Jaguar is one of the finest driving E-types we have ever owned and we have owned a lot of them. It has plenty of power and handles like a dream. The transmission is silky smooth and the clutch feels great. In addition, the car stops straight and true. Thanks to additional cooling, the engine temperature stays cool even on 95 degree plus days. The Jaguar here presents the best of both worlds as it can be shown as it is or driven just about anywhere.
