The Jaguar E-Type needs no icing on its cake of sultry vintage speed, but this find has some anyway. Once owned by a race driver, this E-Type was worked over by a race mechanic at ’s shop in Molsheim, France, to extract more power—enough for an extra 7 mph of top end.

Even aside from the Bugatti pedigree, however, this E-Type is lust-worthy. The exterior, while dusty, appears to be almost entirely straight and rust-free, while the interior is nearly pristine—even after sitting in storage for the past 42 years.
