Considered by the great Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car in the world when it first came out, the Jaguar Type E has reached the work of art status when the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York decided to acquire it to put it on display. But the story doesn’t end here: These past few days, auction house Sotheby’s has put to auction what seems to be one most incredible iterations of this model to date. Restored by expert Dave Ferguson, this frosty brown convertible is simply to die for. This model is « better than new », as we like to say when the restoration works surpass that of the manufacturer. Indeed, when it comes to restoration, collectors don’t have to follow the industrial logic of mass-production. With new assembly techniques and materials, today’s technology allows to raise the bar to way higher standards than before. This is the best choice for either taking the road or showing off in your living room.
