1961 Jaguar XKE

The 1961 Jaguar XKE was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. It was the product of more than 5 years of development. The body utilized a monococque construction and at the rear used an independent rear suspension. Available as both a roadster and a Fixed Head Coupe, the 1961 Jaguar XKE caused just as much sensation as the Jaguar XK120 had back in the late 40's. If youre considering buying a 1961 Jaguar XKE and looking for tips, you've come to the right place!

All Jaguar XKE's have 4-wheel disk brakes with the rear ones being inboard. Overall, the Jaguar XKE is very restoration-friendly, with parts that are fairly easy to find.
