Jaguar E-type

Jaguar E-type, I saw this car last weekend in the courtyard of the castle of Bad Berleberg, Sauerland. Drawn on location.
There is a problem with the drawing: although I drew reality, I stood too close. If you do that you have to exaggerate the perspective, but I didn't. So in the final drawing the front hood looks like it's not long enough. It should have been more like the cars of "Lapin". Or "emmanuel".

Let's just agree that if you are a car enthusiast, there is probably some point in your life you thought about owning a 1960's Jaguar E Type (or "XKE" as it was referred to in the U.S.). View 1961 Jaguar E-type Photos from Car and Driver. Find high-resolution car images in our photo-gallery archive.
