Aerodynamicist and aeronautical engineer Malcolm Sayer, together with William Heynes and Abbey Panels, developed the Jaguar E-Type. On March 15, 1961, the new car was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The Jaguar E-Type was a sensation, with the 3.8 liter six-cylinder in-line engine with 269 hp it reached 240 km/h and accelerated to 100 km/h in 7 seconds. Values that 60 years ago were only achieved by Italians twice as expensive. More than 70,000 of all models and engine variants were built by the end of production. The Jaguar E-Type is a design icon and as sensational today as it was 60 years ago when it was presented.
