BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
1960 Jaguar E2A Prototype
Auction Price: £3.2m
Building on Jaguar's huge success with the tail-finned D-type at Le Mans, the company decided to apply the knowledge gained through racing to its production models, resulting in the now legendary E-Type. The E2A is the crucial "missing link" between the D-Type and the E-Type. This singular prototype tested several new features which ultimately debuted in the E-Type, notably its independent rear suspension set-up.
