A true masterpiece, an automotive treasure that, when it was first unveiled six decades ago in 1960 at the Geneva Motor Show, prompted Enzo Ferrari to declare it the most beautiful car in the world, takes the spotlight in the following article. With over 70,000 units of the E-Type produced, it graced the Coventry factory floor in three distinct phases: Series 1 (1961-1968), Series 2 (1969-1971), and Series 3 (1971-1974).


The 1/24 scale Revell kit represents the Series 1. It is characterized by its glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), the small air intake at the front, the rear lights positioned above the rear bumpers, and, of course, the distinctive exhaust pipes that pass beneath the license plate.

The kit

It's truly a mix of both good and bad elements. On one hand, it features fine details and many components, but on the other hand, it exhibits mediocre engineering design and numerous mold marks, particularly on the interior of the roof and the rear exterior of the hood.


Initially, the overall shape is relatively good and certainly resembles an E-Type, but, of course, it can't precisely replicate all the curves, which are quite complex in reality. The clear parts are good, the chrome needs to be removed, and there's an option for a version with either left-hand or right-hand drive. The kit also includes all the mechanical parts and the suspension.
