There are some who remember this aeroplane ---  it was very useful in WW2, and it had a unique exhaust system.  Other aircraft's exhaust systens flamed when the engine started, which did not help at night.  This aircraft had an exhaust that did not flame.  The designer of this exhaust system was a young engineer name Malcolm Sayer, who some years later modified the Jagaur XK 120, [the C type] and the XK 140 [the D Type], both great racing cars, and who designed the car described as "the most beautiful car I have ever seen" and that was from Enzo Ferrari.  Malcolm Sayer was asked by Bill Lyons to design a successor for the D type, and did so.  The E type shown is being drivenby Mary Sayer, the youngest daughter of Malcolm.
