Should your heart desire, you can certainly find a '60s Jaguar E-Type up for grabs somewhere out there. But even those going for six figures are going to drain you to maintenance.
Mint condition does not mean perfect condition. Unless, we’re talking a revival, which we are.
Under Land Rover’s lead, Jaguar is resurrecting the original 60s E-Type roadster with the “Reborn” series. This is the car, mind you, that Enzo Ferrari called "the most beautiful car ever made" when it debuted in 1961. It is indeed so perfect, so storied, that it holds a place in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.

The Coventry, England manufacturers are planning a run of ten rides built to original factory specifications for the ‘65 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe 4.2. The Jags will come packing a 256 horsepower inline six, rear-wheel drive, four speed manual trannis and tick 60 mph in 7 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph.
Starting at an estimated $350,000+, it may be your only chance to own a piece of mint condition history.
