Video: Jay Leno Reviews His Original 1963 Jaguar E-Type

Posted on by  

In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno got behind the wheel of one of his personal cars: an original 1963 Jaguar E-Type (XKE to be more precise). This is the second classic E-Type owned by Leno; the other one is a Roadster model that is heavily modified.

However, as Jay Leno is a big fan of the original cars, he bought this 1963 XKE from a lady which owned it for 50 years.

The 1963 XKE is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 265 horsepower. The model could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds and could go up to a top speed of 149 mph – all respectable numbers for an older car.

Check this video to see what Jay Leno has to say about this amazing sports car and if he is pleased or not about his acquisition.
