E-Type Jaguar – Movie Moments


Since it’s launch in 1961 the Jaguar E Type has been seen as one of the design milestones of the 1960s. With it’s gorgeous looks and styling it has also been a popular choice for film production companies and although it may not always be the star of the show the E Type Jaguar has seen many movie moments. Two movies it did feature heavily in though are the American Spy Action comedy films



‘Austin Powers International Man of Mystery and ‘The Spy who ….” in which a 1961 E Type was decked out with a Union Jack paint scheme.  The car was immoratilsed in many scaled models and a die cast 1/18 scale will cost you up to £100 today!

A 1965 E-type modified as a hearse also featured in the 1971 film ‘Harold and Maude’.  The movie became a must watch on movie cult lists and is still extremeley popuplar i nthe USA. Sadly the original car was destroyed in the final scene of the movie and a replica now tours America.

The E-Type adds a bit of class to the scenes of the James Bond Thunderball movie -as a 1965 Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe Series I is seen parked next to the 1957 Ford Fairline driven by James bond villan Counte Lippe and a 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 2 and has appeared in numerous other films – you can find them all here. In fact the Internet Movie Cars Database has 17 pages of  of screen clips showing the beloved E-Type Jaguar in scenes from films!

Our E-Type may not be as quirky as a hearse or have a paint scheme as eye catching as a Union Jack – we like to keep things original and our E-Type was lovingly restored so that all Classic car and/or Jaguar fans could enjoy the experience of getting behind the wheel of this beautiful British car.
