The iconic Jaguar E-Type was first unveiled fifty years ago at the Geneva Motor Show.

Here’s some more information from Gerry Judah:

Jaguar E-Type Sculpture – Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011

Very few cars in history have matched the allure of the Jaguar E-Type. The sensational Malcolm Sayer design, 150 mph performance and race-winning heritage gave it a unique combination of beauty, speed and credibility. The E-Type was an overnight sensation when it was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961. Despite changing fashions and the passage of time, our fascination with the E-Type is as strong today as it was 50 years ago, and those swooping curves are still as breathtaking as they were when Enzo Ferrari described it as “the most beautiful car ever made.”

Constructed using half a kilometre of 1200mm diameter steel tube, this sculpture by Gerry Judah stands 28 metres tall and weighs over 175 tonnes – the equivalent to 135 E-types! A striking tribute to a true motoring icon.
