- "Oh, tell me it’s an E-type. That’s the sexiest car in the history of motoring."
- ― Ophelia Maidenstone.
The Jaguar E-Type was a sports car produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar between 1961 and 1975. The Series 1 model first appeared (albeit briefly) in the carpark of Shrublands during the 1965 James Bond film, Thunderball, and was later used two years later in a chase sequence in the unofficial parody film, Casino Royale. It subsequently appeared in Jeffery Deaver's 2011 James Bond continuation novel, Carte Blanche. In Deaver's continuity, James Bond inherited his father's 1960s racing-green E-type Jaguar.
