A rather unusual Jag E Type. Think of it as one off custom made by Industrial/automotive designer Raymond Loewy. Personally I find it interesting and quirky but probably don’t go well with most. Most critics think he destroyed the beautiful curvy lines with his modifications. What do you think?

this one was made by PremiumX as resin.

A fairly well known car, the 1:1 has a bit of a history. I was very tempted by this one but somehow never pulled the trigger.
Thanks for showing it.

It takes a brave man to meddle with the design of an E Type :) I rather like the front, but not sure it’s impact on the side profile quite works. Fascinating bit of E Type related history, though (y)

Agreed with you all about the design choice. Definitely attracted polarized opinions from many but i think most are negative towards this. To be honest I never knew about such model existence until i got my hand on this model and it is definitely interesting to learn more about this particular car's history. Personally I find the car somewhat fascinating and like the front but it does disrupt the overall side profile line in my view. As a 1/43 resin model, I am impressed with the realistic looking wire wheels.
