Jaguar E Type 4.2 road test


1969 E-Type 4.2 Series 2 Coupe Driving Sublime, feeling light, nimble and tight and never crashing over bumps Engine Potent 4.2 litre DOHC 6 cylinder unit proves your E-Type doesn’t have to be a V12 Performance Max Power: 265 bhp @ 5500 RPM Max Torque: 283 lb ft @ 4000 RPM0-60mph: 6.1 seconds

Top Speed: 150mph Brakes Superb, a firm press of the pedal means you can, if required, lock the front wheels at virtually any speed Handling One of life’s and arguably physics mysteries, how a car so long and narrow can handle so well Desirability Series 2 E-Types are the least well loved, which translates into a great opportunity for entry level ownership Pro’s It’s an E-Type Con’s Buying: OK so it’s not the purists favourite, but make sure it’s a good one and you’ve still got an icon in your garage Renting: None Overall 5/5
