Like the girl from Ipanema, it's hard to resist staring at a beautiful car. The perfect combination of curves, shapes and proportions transforms the design into a sculptural work of art. Take one look at my Jaguar E-Type roadster and it's hard not to fall in love. My wife calls her "the other woman." But beauty is not only skin deep. Behold the classic look and sounds of the inline-6 with triple SU carbs, and the appeal grows greater. Slip behind the elegant 3-spoke wood steering wheel, gaze out past a perfect sports-car dashboard, down that long, lanky bonnet and the heart beats faster. Point down a sinuous country road, open up the throttle and the passion grows stronger. Sports car nirvana. What's not to love?
