WHAT E-TYPE WOULD WE BUY?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

KEITH ADAMS ED­I­TOR A HY­BRID

One that starts and doesn’t need a gear­box or sus­pen­sion re­build would be nice. Fail­ing that, a Beecham with a modern V8 Su­per­charged XKR en­gine in it.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR AN ORIG­I­NAL

If I could have any E-type then it would have to be the 1961 3.8 Com­pe­ti­tion Road­ster that sold at H&H in April.

GER­VAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR EA­GLE’S FINEST

One bolted to­gether by Ea­gle, although I’d draw the line at a Low Drag GT or Spy­der GT. Too ugly and not ex­actly in the spirit.

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR A CORGI!

Prefer­ably in mint con­di­tion and boxed – that’s the Corgi Toys No 307 with de­tach­able hard top. In red, of course.

DAVID SIMISTER FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR A PRO­TO­TYPE

In E2A rac­ing pro­to­type spec. As a sort of half­way house between D-type and E-type it looks and sounds ut­terly mes­meris­ing.

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR A CLAS­SIC

I quite fancy one of those new lightweights Jaguar Clas­sics made. More than a mil­lion quid, but about five mil­lion less than the real thing.

CALUM BROWN WEB PRO­DUCER WITH 3.8 IN IT

It has to be in 3.8-litre form, with a Moss gear­box in it. In blue. Prefer­ably with­out a dig­ger crush­ing it as an Ital­ian man com­ments on how pretty it is.
