Jaguar E-type

Rules For The Modern Man - - Rules For The Modern Man -

De­signed by Mal­colm Sayer, who also made a sec­ond icon of the English mar­que (the XJS), Jaguar’s E-type was orig­i­nally con­ceived as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer as a coupé. Enzo Fer­rari, the man be­hind the most fa­mous car brands of all time, called it "the most beau­ti­ful car ever made" when he laid eyes on it. Sayer in­tro­duced sci­en­tific de­sign in au­to­mo­biles, com­bin­ing aero­dy­namism with form. The over­sized head­lights and curved hood, cou­pled with an elon­gated body be­came de­sign char­ac­ter­is­tics of Jaguar that were em­u­lated by other com­pa­nies through­out the 1960s.
