Book Now - “Penelope” – 1968 Jaguar E-Type Convertible. Seats 2.

Since it was unveiled at the Geneva auto show in March 1961, the Jaguar E-Type has regularly topped lists of the most beautiful cars ever made. Enzo Ferrari agreed, as did the Museum of Modern Art in New York who placed a stunning opalescent blue model on permanent display in 1996.

It was not just a beautiful piece of art. It was also a masterful piece of engineering at least a decade ahead of its time for an (relatively) affordable sports car. Its straight six, twin overhead camshaft, triple carburetted engine was developed from their Le Mans winning C and D types from the fifties. Its double wishbone front suspension and fully independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes was racing car technology in a comfortable, sports car and long distance tourer.

“Penelope” is made even more perfect with the recent addition of a Toyota Supra 5 Speed manual gearbox. The 4.2 litre motor, the longer wheelbase and the superb gearbox makes “Penelope” simply the ultimate sixties sports car. Incredibly powerful, great roadholding and a ‘snick-snick’ gearbox. Your only problem will be getting out of the driver’s seat at the end of the day. Though if using “Penelope” as a wedding car, hopefully not such a problem!

Average Duration: 10 hours 8 am to 6 pm
