  13. Jaguar Classic will create six matched pairs of E-types to celebrate the iconic sports car’s 60th anniversary in 2021: the E-type 60 Collection Each pair of E-type 60 Edition cars pay tribute to two of the oldest and most famous Jaguar E-types of all: ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’, which played pivotal roles in the unveiling of the car at its world debut in Geneva, Switzerland in March 1961. An Opalescent Gunmetal Grey 3.8-litre Fixed-Head Coupe registered ‘9600 HP’ was one of the first two E-types unveiled to specially-invited guests at the Parc des Eaux Vives. Driven ‘flat out’ to Switzerland from Coventry the night before the launch, public relations manager Bob Berry arrived with minutes to spare for demonstration drives. With an outstanding reaction to the E-type resulting in overwhelming demand for drives with Berry, legendary Jaguar Test and Development Engineer Norman Dewis was told to ‘drop everything’ and drive a British Racing Green 3.8-litre roadster registered ‘77 RW’ overnight from Coventry to Geneva. Both cars were also used for media road tests, which proved the car’s sensational performance – including its 150mph top speed – matched its jet aircraft-inspired lines honed in a wind tunnel by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer. Every E-type 60 Edition built by the team at Jaguar’s Classic Works facility in Warwickshire will be an existing 1960s 3.8-litre E-type fully-restored to exclusive 60th anniversary tribute specification. Each E-type 60 Collection pair will include one Flat Out Grey ‘9600 HP’ coupe and one Drop Everything Green ‘77 RW’ roadster, with unique paint formulations exclusively reserved for these cars. Each E-type 60 Edition will feature a number of 60th anniversary commemorative design details created in conjunction with Jaguar Design Director Julian Thomson. Synonymous with the revolutionary zeitgeist of the Swinging Sixties, E-types were owned by celebrities including Steve McQueen, Brigitte Bardot, Frank Sinatra, George Harrison, Tony Curtis and Britt Ekland. And, thanks to the beauty of its sculptural forms, its functionality and its impact on design, an E-type became only the third car to join The Museum of Modern Art’s design collection in 1996. Dan Pink, Director of Jaguar Classic, said: “The Jaguar E-type is a genuine icon, as sensational today as the moment it was unveiled in 1961. It’s testament to the E-type’s advanced design and engineering that it can still be enjoyed and admired as passionately almost 60 years on. “The E-type 60 Collection is a lasting tribute for E-type admirers, honouring the car’s legacy and the achievements of the team that created it – many of whom have descendants working for Jaguar Classic today, expertly restoring, maintaining and future-proofing enjoyment for generations to come.” Jaguar Classic is the world’s number one source of genuine parts and owner services for the E-type – from health-checks and sympathetic upgrades to restoring expertly selected examples to ‘Reborn’ specification, meticulously returning them to as-new condition. b822f440-defe-689a-4365-f0d9afbed031.mp4 For more information on the full range of cars, services, parts and experiences offered by Jaguar Classic, visit: For regular updates from Jaguar Classic, including the progress of the E-type 60 Collection, follow the new official @Jaguar.Classic account on Instagram.
  14. Hi Barrie Sounds like it could be the trunking containing the wiring to the drivers door that may contain the problem. As the door opens and closes the wiring (within the trunking) articulates and can result in the wires breaking. An easy way to try it is to hold the door open and while pressing the window switch down, try wiggling the wiring to hopefully make the circuit (broken wire) and if the window moves the your problem is within this area. I am in Bournemouth area if you get completely stuck for assistance Cheers, Trevor

  16. Jaguar UK is delighted to announce the latest addition to its list of awards with the 2020 title of 'Car Brand with the Best Tech' as voted for by UK owners Digital automotive marketplace, Auto Trader invited its community of car owners to vote in 19 lifestyle-based categories spanning everything from Best Car for New Drivers to Best Car for Long Distances. Today, in an online version of its annual New Car Awards ceremony, the verdict of the 182,000 voters was revealed with Jaguar scooping the accolade for the best technology. "Jaguar owners are a happy bunch when it comes to their car’s features, which is why the Coventry Cat has won Auto Trader’s Car Brand with the Best Tech Award. Drivers remarked on a “top-class interior” and talked of “superb driver aids”, including smartphone connection and the ability to start the car remotely on a cold day. Well done, Jaguar" ERIN BAKER - EDITORIAL DIRECTOR OF AUTO TRADER Jaguar vehicles are brimming with smart and convenient features to complement modern life. Features most popular with drivers are the 10-inch Touchscreen for swipe and pinch-to-zoom control of maps, media and settings, intelligent voice recognition, heads-up display and interactive driver display - all of which give Jaguar drivers the control they need over their environment without compromising the reward of driving. And for all occupants, wireless device charging, smartphone connection and state-of-the-art MeridianTM audio system options deliver entertainment, convenience and connection. New technology for 2021 revealed last month for Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE SUV includes the introduction of ‘Pivi Pro’ an infotainment system developed to be as intuitive as a smartphone. An all new navigation provides real-time traffic updates and live access to charging points making EV ownership even more viable. Pivi Pro also features Smart Settings which automatically identify individual drivers using their key and phone. The system selects preferred seat and mirror positions and plays preferred media at the start of each journey – tailored to each driver. Smart Settings can also learn and automate these preferences based on your habits and past routines. "We are delighted to be recognised for the incredible technology available in Jaguar vehicles, particularly the all-electric I-PACE which is the exemplar of our cutting-edge innovation. This award demonstrates the relevance and desirability of Jaguar vehicles, as voted for by the people who own and love them" RAWDON GLOVER - MANAGING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR LAND ROVER UK

  22. Hi Craig.....welcome to the Forum Headlamp washers work when the headlights are switched on and the washers activated. You'll probably need someone to flick the windscreen washers while you are round the front of the car looking to see if the jets appear. Good to have you onboard
