Jaguar is today the brand that represents sports and luxury cars produced by the British company Jaguar Land Rover, owned by the Tata Motor automotive group which is, in turn, owned by the Indian industrial giant founded by Jamshedji Tata considered by many a pioneer of modern industry and father of Indian industry. Jaguar finds, however, its origins in 1922 when the then promising engineer Sir. William Lyon founded with William Walmsley the Swallow Sidecar Company specialized in the construction of sidecars, the business immediately proved to be in continuous growth and, after Arthur Whittaker also joined the company, production also extended to the automotive field initially building new bodies on the base of Austin Seven. The company changed its name to Swallow Sidecar Company Coachbielder and the talent of Sir. Lyon was not slow to express himself in the construction of bodywork which led to the creation of about 3500 models of the Austin Seven Swallow. The enormous success achieved in the automotive field led to the decision to abandon the motorcycle business in 1930 and after Walmsley's resignation in 1934 Lyons remains the sole head of the newly formed SS Cars Ltd which produced its first luxury car in 1931 the Jaguar SS1. After the stop of production during the Second World War, in 1945 the British company changed its name again in favor of a more popular Jaguar, a brand already used previously for some cars produced in the pre-war period. The Jaguar E-Type, also known as XK-E is a car from the British car manufacturer from 1961 to 1975, designed by Malcolm Sayer, also father of the Jaguar C-Type and D-Type. Revolutionary in its design, driving characteristics and aesthetics, the E-Type was first introduced at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show as a two-seat sports touring coupe and at the New York Motor Show. York of the same year, however, the cabriolet version was presented.

The model has 3 openings (bonnet and two doors), is in perfect condition and with instruction booklet in Italian and original box that shows signs of aging as clearly visible from the photographs.
