The E-Type’s claimed 150 mph top speed, sub-7-second 0 to 60mph acceleration, unitary construction, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and independent front and rear suspension with in board rear braking system distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes. The E-Type was based on Jaguar’s D-type racing car, which had won the 24 Hours of LeMans three consecutive years beginning 1955, and employed what was, for the early 1960s, a novel racing design principle, with a front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and front bodywork bolted directly to the body tub. No ladder frame chassis, as was common at the time, was needed and as such the first cars weighed only 2900lb.
