Jaguar Classic reveals the new E-type 60 Collection

Contact Us

Jaguar Classic has unveiled its first matched pair of E-type Collection cars to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the iconic, original Jaguar E-types released in 1961. Initially, Jaguar debuted their E-type in Geneva, Switzerland as a lone coupé, but after the eager reaction from the public, Jaguar rushed a second E-type, a roadster, from Coventry to Geneva overnight.

Six decades later, in a tribute to the original E-type pair, Jaguar are releasing the E-type 60 Collection cars. Sold as a pair, one E-type 60 Edition coupé and one E-type 60 Edition roadster, they have been heavily inspired by the original legendary cars they are based off of: the Opalescent Gunmetal Grey coupé ‘9600 HP’, driven ‘flat out’ by Bob Berry to make the launch itself, and the British Racing Green roadster ’77 RW’, driven by Norman Dewis who was told to ‘drop everything’ to get to Geneva the next day.

The E-type 60 Edition coupé is finished in an exclusive Flat Out Grey, whilst the roadster is in a Drop Everything Green paint colour. These colour formulations are inspired by the original 1961 colours and will not be used on any other Jaguar.

‘This was a fantastic opportunity to design and engrave the stories of two epic drives by two Jaguar legends in these iconic and special cars. A permanent reminder of the anniversary, everywhere these E-types go, the memory of Bob Berry and Norman Dewis will travel with them.’ - Johnny Dowell, Artist and Designer 'King Nerd'


Restored and refined by the experts at Jaguar Classic in Coventry, the E-type 60 Collection cars combine flawless quality and exceptional engineering know-how. The cars feature a range of unique E-type 60 design elements cultivated together with Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director, including the Jaguar Classic Infotainment System with Bluetooth connectivity and built-in satellite navigation, and a five-speed manual gearbox, sure to enhance the driveability and usability of these new cars.

The most distinctive visual element for each of the specially produced cars is an engraving by artist and designer King Nerd, which takes around 100 hours to create, on the centre console of each car, recalling the drive routes from Coventry to Geneva of the original Jaguar E-type cars.

In addition to the centre console, the bonnet badge, clock face within the tachometer, fuel cap and chassis plate are all finished with a commemorative E-type 60 logo created by Jaguar Design, featuring the years ‘1961-2021’.

‘Sixty years after its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961, the talented team at Jaguar Classic are releasing the ultimate birthday present to the E-type: The E-type 60 Collection. The attention to detail demonstrates how this project has been a labour of love for our designers, engineers, craftspeople and partners. Exquisite detailing combined with enhanced usability ensure these E-types will be coveted and enjoyed for decades to come by their discerning owners, starting with a once-in-a-lifetime Coventry to Geneva pilgrimage for our six customers and their guests in Summer 2022.’ - Dan Pink, Director at Jaguar Classic

This pair, however, is only the beginning. Jaguar Classic will be launching 12 expertly restored E-types, just in time for Summer 2022. Next year, six customers and their guests will take part in the ultimate E-type journey; a Coventry-to-Geneva drive with their new cars to have their own E-type experience.
