RealRides of WNY - 1970 Jaguar XK-E

Saw this sharp 1970 Jaguar XK-E over on Buffalo’s West Side during a recent bicycle ride. For some reason the powers-that-be in Coventry marketed it as the XK-E on this side of the pond and the E-Type everywhere else — although the E-Type badge remained on the luggage compartment lid everywhere. This yellow example is a Series 2, which was produced from 1968-71, and has the 4.2L inline-six engine (245 hp) under that long, sleek bonnet. Introduced in 1961, the E-Type remained in production until 1975; it was succeeded by the XJ-S.
