Jaguar is celebrating the iconic E-Type‘s 60th anniversary in March 2021 by building six roadsters and six coupes, delivered as a commemorative pack to the half-dozen selection of lucky customers.

The E-Type is without a doubt the marque’s most famous sports car, and to this day is one of the most sought after period British sports cars around. Prices for original E-Types often fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars — take a look at this 1961 Series 1 offering that sold for $720,000 USD, for example.

Jaguar’s Classic Works facility will be behind the production of the 12 E-Types, and has chosen to pay homage to the “9600 HP” driven by public relations manager Bob Berry from Coventry to Switzerland and the “77 RW” driven on the same route by the engineer Norman Dewis in 1961.

The “9600 HP” is said to be the oldest E-Type in existence, and will now find new life in the pack thanks to the coupe sporting a “Flat Out Gray” paint job that pays homage to the classic model, as it was driven flat-out on its run.

The “77 RW” roadster will be painted in another custom hue, dubbed “Drop Everything Green.” Inside both, you’ll find a number of exclusive finishing touches designed in conjunction with Jaguar’s design director, Julian Thomson.

Both will be powered by a 3.8-liter straight-six engine, which is expected to push the car to its once incredible 150 MPH top speed. Given the rarity of the E-Type 60th Anniversary pack, pricing is slated to be around the $785,000 USD mark for the two. Prospective buyers wanting to get their hands on the Jaguar E-Type 60th Anniversary Collection can inquire by heading over to the Jaguar Classic website.
