32. 1964 Jaguar E-Type
Introduced in 1961, Jaguar E-Type was a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic. Despite Jaguar’s long-lasting tradition of fine sports cars, the E-Type was years ahead of its time. The car had a superb design, four-wheel disk brakes, independent rear suspension, and powerful straight-six engines. It was derived from the Le Mans-winning C and D Type racers. And it was as fast as any Ferrari or Maserati at the time as a result (via Hagerty).
But the best thing was the price. The E Type had the looks, power, and performance of high-priced Italian exotics but cost just a fraction of the price. However, today drivers will need to pay over $70,000 for a decent example because of its rich tradition.
