Automotif CCCLXXXIV...

One of the all-time most beautiful automobiles, a Series 1 Jaguar E-Type in British Racing Green. Simply gorgeous.

A dual overhead cam 4.2L straight six with triple SU carbs, back in the early Sixties when twin camshafts in the head was still pretty exotic race car tech, would push the E-type to 150mph, which must have been exciting on those tires. Fortunately it also had power-assisted four-wheel discs to haul you back down, something that was also super high-tech for the era.
