EE Lightning F.6 & Jaguar E-Type: Albion’s Finest.

In 2011 the just plain lovely Jaguar E-Type and the simply awesome Lightning were brought together by the Classic & Sports Car magazine in order to celebrate Jag & Lightning’s half-century anniversaries. British both to the “bone”, the E-type was launched in the spring of 1961 predated a few month earlier by the Lightning’s service debut with the 74 Sqn.
This pic was taken in one of Bruntingthorpe’s Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) sheds. There a group of die-hard Lightning enthusiasts mantained in fully functional and “taxiable” condition a pair of these gorgeous brutes.

Uglier Jaguars.
