The E-Type wasn’t just about the looks.
Modelled on the 3 times Le Mans winning D-Type, it gave owners a real taste of its racing pedigree. Here was a machine capable of achieving a top speed of 153 mph and 0-60 in under 7 seconds – almost unique in a production car at the time.
Despite the distinguished list of owners, it was comparatively affordable. In 1961 the Series One E-Type 2+2 would set you back a mere £300. Nowadays ‘the most beautiful car in the world’ will set you back considerably more!
Corgi Toys were at their zenith too - a world-beater in their own right – creating diecast models in their Swansea factory that thrilled generations of children. They did the car proud by issuing it in this distinctive bright red livery, complete with opening doors and bonnet, which upon opening reveals some amazing detail of the of the legendary 4.2ltr powerplant. Even the model's tiny seats recline! With chrome plated bumpers, exquisite wire wheels and a copper coloured exhaust, it was by far the most detailed Corgi - arguably of all time!
And now, we are delighted to have re-created this fully authentic die-cast reissue completely faithful to the 1968 model – of course at a fraction of the cost of an original! What a story, what a car, what a model!
Now it’s all yours, along with two extra FREE gifts, for less than a tenner!
