Jaguar E-Type Series 2

Production: 1968 - 1971

Production Type: Mass Production

Produced: 18809

The E-Type Series 2 introduced a number of design changes from Series 1, largely due to U.S. National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration mandates. The most distinctive exterior feature is the absence of the glass headlight covers, which affected several other imported cars, such as the Citroën DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this step was applied worldwide for the E-Type. Other hallmarks of Series 2 cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, larger front indicators and tail lights re-positioned below the bumpers, and an enlarged grille and twin electric fans to aid cooling. Air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options.
