Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cars to ever grace the road, the Jaguar E-Type, introduced in 1961, is undoubtedly also one of the most fun. Designed and manufactured in the West Midlands town of Coventry, this sleek sports coupe seems custom-built for the backcountry roads of rural England — and in many ways it was. While several of the vehicles on our list were produced with racing in mind, the E-Type was developed for all-around driver satisfaction. From the racetrack to roadways, Jaguar's much sought-after sports coupe remains a striking example of well-purposed performance engineering.
