The E-type 60 Collection gives honor to these two legendary cars: the Opalescent Gunmetal Grey Coupe “9600 HP” that publicist Bob Berry drove to make the launch, and the British Racing Green roadster “77 RW” that Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis drove after he was informed to ‘drop everything’ to be able to get to Geneva the following day.
