Kyosho – 1:18 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 RHD – Red – 1961
2021 – 60th Anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type
In 1961, the Jaguar E-Type was introduced as the successor to the famous XK 120, 140 and 150 series cars. The E-Type was introduced at The Salon car show in Geneva and it was there that world got to see its sublime design and the technical concept.
The design of the E-Type series as it was introduced in 1961 was stunning! The bonnet, the headlights, the back lights, the recess for the wheel housing and the rear profile all made you realize that you were looking at an absolute, timeless beauty in automobile design.
The E-Type was also an engineering beauty. Its bodywork was a steel ‘monocoque’ with a sub-frame attached in front of the cover in which the engine and the wheel-suspension were housed. In the back, under the ‘monocoque’, there was a second sub-frame to which the differential gear and the rear suspension were attached. The E-Type was equipped with independent wheel-suspension and disc brakes all round.
The Jaguar E Type will rightfully remain one of motoring’s most iconic cars.
Kyosho are celebrating Jaguar’s 60th Anniversary of the E-Type with three stunning variants in Red, Blue & White. Each model will have full opening features and offer collectors all the detail and refinement you would expect from Kyosho.
