If you've ever lusted after an E-Type Jaguar - and let's face it, who hasn't? - then surely one for serious consideration would be that which won the 2018 Jaguar Drivers' Club Champion of Champions award for best E-Type. Well you're in luck, as it's currently seeking a suitable caring new home. 'OCD 689G' is a UK market, matching numbers example that hails from 1969, during which it was distributed by Henlys of London to Jaguar dealer Moores of Birmingham.

The first keeper was a Mr G A Yarwood, while the second was the actor Tony Osoba, who retained the car from 1994 to 2007. The restoration that clearly so impressed the concours judges apparently took place between 2014 and 2017, and the results need to be seen first-hand to be fully appreciated.

The car is finished in a lustrous shade of Dark Blue and trimmed in contrasting Beige leather. It rides on immaculate chrome wire wheels and it specification includes a sunroof. The indicated total mileage is a low but credible 39,950, and this lovely example of a much-loved breed is now being offered complete with Heritage Certificate, and comprehensive history file containing a letter and signed photo from Tony Osoba, and MOTs dating all the way back to 1975. What's not to like?

Ever since the celebration of their 50th anniversary back in 2011, E-Types have represented ever stronger currency, as befits the motorcar described at birth by none other than Enzo Ferrari as 'the most beautiful car in the world'. Though it is quite rightly the early Series 1 examples that are making the big money, suitably cornered, most E-Type aficionados agree that the Series 2 models are more comfortable and driveable. They are also surprisingly rare, with just 1,070 Coupe versions produced between 1968 and 1971.
