See this E-Type and almost 300 other UK automotive icons at FAST Live

The Jaguar E-type was introduced in March 1961 and promised a top speed of 150mph. John Coombs was a successful racing driver in the 1940s and ’50s and his family business included a thriving Jaguar dealership. He also managed a race team, and many famous drivers competed for him, including a certain Graham Hill. Coombs’ regular customers were able to buy Jaguar road cars that had engines and suspension specially tuned by him, and this particular car is thought to be the only surviving E-type which Coombs had prepared.
