Jaguar to Finish Six Aluminum Lightweight E-Type Coupes

Many believe the acme of automotive design was reached when the Jaguar E-Type (aka XKE) hit dealers in 1961.  And, they’re not wrong.  Inch-for-inch… Curve-for-curve… Cylinder-for-cylinder, there has yet to be a more beautiful, stirring or soulful car.  This is even more true when you look at the very rare aluminum Lightweight E-Type from 1963.  Sure, there are some that are, perhaps, as stunning (the new Aston...
