Def one of my all time favorites. If I could fit in one, I would own a coupe.
Hope that beauty is yours!

300sl gives it a run for its money but I still drool every time I see either

Of course the gt40 is still tops

It is difficult for me to say one car is the MOST beautiful.
But easier to share my top 5: Jag Type E, AC Cobra 427, Ford GT (any of them!), Ferrari Enzo, and McClaren F1.
Hmmmm, still left out many beautiful cars (Daytona coupe, Viper, Pantera, etc.... I guess that is why we enjoy collecting them!

I had a 72 V12 coupe. It was fun to drive when it did not have an electrical issue. Beautiful design and nice interior. I could not live with the uncertainty of the car not running because of the electrical issues. I guess Lucas electrics of that era were not ideal. Maybe the reason for drinking warm beer in England!

No, but the money I made selling the Merlin let me buy this Jag and a Porsche Turbo!

I happened to be at the Amelia Island Bonhams Auction in May, and was shocked to see mongrel's beautiful creation come on the stage. I had no idea it was there but I recognized it immediately from this Forum.

I built the 1/8 Scale Monogram Model of the XKE in the mid-60's. Roll up and down windows, engine wiring, suspension. I need to get on ebay and build another one.

I agree on one of the most beautiful cars ever !

Yeah, I had the model when I was a kid too! But working on British cars in the 1970’s-80’s cured me of wanting to own one.

I owned a Lucas electric British sports car for 6 years. Never left home without a tow-strap.

Beautiful cars, E types. I’ve owned two (coupe and roadster) and car verify that the electrical wire casing is designed to keep the smoke from getting out. Never left home without a tow rope, fire extinguisher, and a cell phone!
