The Fairfield County Concours d’Elegance invites America to join in its search for Jaguar E-Types from within the contiguous United States for its eighth annual event on Sunday, September 18, 2011, in Westport, Conn. The Fairfield County Concours is seeking two privately owned E-Types: the car with the lowest chassis serial number and the car that is the longest privately held single-owner E-Type. Owners are asked to submit information, stories, and photographs (exterior ¾ front and side views, one each) of their E-Types through the website: www.fairfieldcountyconcours.com/enter.html.
The Jaguar E-Type will be highlighted with a Featured Judging Class on the occasion of its 50th anniversary; the Fairfield County Concours’ search follows on the success and popularity of its Pontiac search in 2009. Hailed as one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the E-Type, dubbed the XK-E in the United States, combined sleek lines, high performance, and competitive pricing during its 1961-1975 production.
“We have always had several remarkable E-Type Jaguars in our show field each year,” said Bill Scheffler, CEO and Co-Founder. “To celebrate the 50th year since its introduction, we decided to make the car one of our featured judging classes for 2011. Adding the search for two special E-Types will increase the interest in this very special car at our event.”
The Fairfield County Concours d’Elegance will showcase more than 200 of the world’s most extraordinary automobiles and motorcycles spanning the past 100 years and host the Bonhams Motor Vehicle and Automobilia Auction. For further information, visit the website, www.fairfieldcountyconcours.com.
