24 Jul / Jaguar E-type 50th anniversary
There’s little left to say about the E-Type that hasn’t already been said, by experts ranging from Jaguar’s own design director Ian Callum, to none other than EnzoFerrari, who’s said to have called the E-Type the most beautiful car in the world. Introduced in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, the E-Type became an icon, one of the silhouettes that even car unenthusiasts can recognize from a distance, thanks to an aerodynamic shape penned by Malcolm Sayer.
Capable of 150 mph, it was the fastest car in the world in its day. Collecting fans from Brigitte Bardot to Austin Power, the E-Type itself became heavily collected–which means even at the half-century mark, thousands of pristine and slightly worn for the better examples survive, to race another day.
Designed and created by the Evanta Motor Co., the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato gets a carbon fiber makeover – making the stunning beauty all that more interesting to gawk at. What started as an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, the reworked outer shell provides a sense of nostalgia while other changes include a reduced wheelbase, bespoke breaking and suspension systems, V12 engine and oxblood red hide interior. The supercar is currently being set for auction in Monaco for those of you with the budget and desire to add a little 007 flare to one’s life.
