WHAT E-TYPE WOULD WE BUY?
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.
