March 15, 2021 will mark 60 years since the original Jaguar E-Type was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961. Jaguar is celebrating the occasion by releasing 12 factory-restored examples—six coupes and six convertibles—with a handful of special touches commemorating the car’s eventful debut.
The 12 cars will be sold as pairs, with six lucky customers receiving one coupe and one convertible each. The coupes pay tribute to “9600 HP,” the Gunmetal Grey fixed-roof Series I driven by then-publicist Bob Berry to the launch event, while the convertibles are a nod to “77 RW,” the British Racing Green roadster that factory test driver Norman Dewis drove down from the United Kingdom just one day before the unveiling was supposed to occur.
