- Jaguar’s iconic E-type celebrated on a new First Class postage stamp as one of the Royal Mail’s British Auto Legends
- Stamp illustrates an evocative 1961 Series One Jaguar E-type roadster in red as one of a set of six classic British motor cars
(Whitley, Coventry – 14th August 2013). Arguably the most beautiful car in history, the Jaguar E-type’s stunning looks and 150mph performance are being celebrated appropriately on one of three new First Class postage stamps being launched today (Wednesday 14th August) by the Royal Mail.
The Jaguar E-type created a worldwide sensation when it was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961, and more than 50 years on, the car continues to cause both excitement and desire, whether it’s on the road, or illustrated on a postage stamp.
The legendary Jaguar is joined by five other familiar and popular British classic cars, including a 1962 MG B, 1963 Aston Martin DB5, 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, 1968 Morgan Plus 8 and 1976 Lotus Esprit, with the iconic red Jaguar E-type roadster chosen for one of the three First Class postage deliveries; very fitting for such a swift and stylish performance car.
