The car was first displayed to the press on 15 March 1961 at the Geneva Auto Show to huge excitement and in a theatrical fashion typical of Sir William Lyons. Thus the E-Type was born.

But the roots of the E-Type go farther back than this legendary press introduction: It’s clear to see the D-Type Le Mans race car influence on the E-Type’s bodylines, while the 3.8-litre straight-six engine was sourced from the XK150 S.

It also featured much more modern specifications such as independent rear suspension and all-round disk brakes that put it ahead of its time. The 3.8 liter engine gave out a claimed 265bhp and could reach a top speed of 150mph, which made it the fastest production car in the world at that time.
