GAYDON, UNITED KINGDOM – February 22, 2011: 21st February 2011: Jaguar has commissioned a beautiful ‘Collectors’ Edition’ coffee-table book to mark the 50th anniversary of the car that stopped the automotive world in its tracks – the E-Type.

‘E-Type – 50 Years of a Design Icon’ charts the remarkable story of this revolutionary car and is available for online purchase now.

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, the E-Type was the fastest production car in the world, capable of an incredible 150mph. Costing half the price of its rivals, the E-Type was the car to be seen in. Football legend George Best was an owner, along with Brigitte Bardot, Tony Curtis and Steve McQueen.

The 144-page hardback book contains a combination of previously unseen material from the Jaguar Heritage archives, newly commissioned photography and bespoke content featuring interviews with luminaries from the worlds of design, motorsport and celebrity, including Sir Jackie Stewart, Martin Brundle, Sir Stirling Moss and Jay Leno.

Each individually numbered VIP book is hand-bound in a specially commissioned reproduction of the E-type’s original upholstery leather and presented in its own slipcase.

The premium version will retail for 49 whilst the VIP Version will retail for 299 and be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
