Pic Of The Week: E-Type And Lightning
Supersonic jet plus motoring icon equals lovely wallpaper, we reckon...
The oh-so-wonderful Jaguar E-Type and the frankly awesome English Electric Lightning have been brought together by our esteemed (and inspired) colleagues over at Classic & Sports Car magazine as part of a supplement to celebrate the Jag's 50th anniversary (and coincidentally the Lightning's half-century).
And if you think there's some sort of clever photographic tricky going on, well you're wrong - this is just man, camera, E-Type and 1500mph Cold War interceptor. Brilliant.
You can read more about this epic meeting in October's issue of C&SC, available now in all good newsagents (and probably some rubbish ones, too).
Oh and, if you don't like our choice of wallpaper, you can pop along to the Classic and Sports Car website and download their version (which is different - not better, just different) for some Jet 'n' classic car goodness...
An easy 10!! and come on own up... who rated it less than 10!!!
I drive past the old English Electric factory in Preston every day on my way to work,it must of been great when in full flow.
8/10 for me though as it looks a bit over produced even though it isnt and the cheesily sunglassed Clarksonite in the E type cocks it all up!
