Designer reimagines the E-Type Jag

World’s Coolest Car gets 21st century attitude as Swedish designer freshens up the ol’ girl

Designer reimagines the E-Type Jag

Remodelling the E-Type Jag is like remodelling Joanna Lumley.

Yet somehow, Swedish designer Bo Zolland has risked blasphemy, a spell in the Tower and probably the Ghost of Enzo Ferrari to create the ‘Growler': how an E-Type Jaaaaag might look today. And it looks spiffing.

It's apparently based on an XKR complete with a 5.0-litre V8 tuned to produce around 600bhp. Then there's that bodystyle...mmmm.

Sure, it could do with a better name, but you have to admit, it's quite a design, no?
