What is that John?
There's a gent up the road from me who has a E-Type and a Datsun Z in mint condition, takes them out every now and then for a run. Absolutely cane's them hard, you can hear the tyre's squeal a mile away.

1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante coupe.
The roadster is better looking, just like classic E-Type.
I prefer the C myself.

Correctamundo... I like all the type model Jags, but I do have a soft spot of the C Type..

The bonnet and wings reminds of a Big Cat's front paw...

Not really, the overall shape is similar but it was the best they had regarding aero at the time.

I love the modern one by Touring.

My uncle has an original e type and is only the second owner he's had it for 36yrs and only takes it out in the dry it sounds amazing but he says it handles like a dog.

Beg to differ. Every XKE prior to 1968 is beautiful of course, but I personally think the coupe is the most attractive.

I do agree on the C type.

My very good and long time friend Tom Owen runs a Jaguar Parts Business. He's has a few cars including E Types and the D replica (with complete 3.8S running gear) seen in the background here.
