During 1964, Jaguar would switch out the 3.8L engine in the illustrious XKE with a 4.2L V-8, producing the same horsepower (265 hp), performance (0-60 mph in 7 seconds, 150 mph top speed), but provided additional torque, increasing from 240 lb. ft. to 283 lb. ft. This enabled drivers to downshift and gain extra power with additional gear changes. With the addition of the V-8, Jaguar added a synchromesh first gear so the driver wouldn’t grind into first when shifting at speed. The 1964 Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe 4.2L cars also added a symbol to the trunk lid proclaiming “Jaguar 4.2 liter E-Type,” changing from the six-cylinder’s badge simply stating “Jaguar.” Chrome spoke wheels were added to the factory option list as well. In its purest form, the Jaguar XKE FHC offers exceptional performance and set an incredible benchmark for future sports cars. Four-wheel disc brakes and fully independent suspension were the handling highlights. The car’s performance often rivals that of today’s sports cars, but as an owner, you probably already know this.
