After all, it's only white, right?

Lightweight E Type

In our opinion; no, not just any white. When it comes to classic cars, few colours exude such timeless elegance as "Old English White". Many car brands have released their own variant over the years, each with their own designation: Cream, Ivory, Antique White, Elfenbein,... In our eyes, it only indicates one thing; if they all did it, it must be good!

This distinguished hue graced the exteriors of countless iconic cars, including the two we are happy to introduce to you in our next theme; the legendary Jaguar E-Type and the charming Morgan Plus Four.

1965 Jaguar E-Type S1 4.2 OTS

The Jaguar E-Type, unveiled in the 1960s, remains a symbol of British automotive excellence. Adorned in Old English White, this sports car exudes sophistication and power.Its streamlined and aerodynamic body lines, accentuated by the glossy white paint, evoke a sense of pure beauty.

The E-Type's long bonnet, sculpted curves and iconic oval grille create a visual symphony that captures the hearts of enthusiasts around the world.


1992 Morgan +4

The Morgan Plus Four, a much-loved British roadster, also shows the allure of the white colour. Morgan offered this colour under a different name; Royal Ivory White. Since its introduction in the 1950s, the Morgan Plus Four has embodied the quintessential British sports car experience. With its traditional design, handmade bodywork and mesmerising colour, it reflects the essence of nostalgia.

The appeal of Old English White lies not only in its visual appeal, but also in the emotions it evokes. It transports us to a bygone era, when elegance and craftsmanship reigned supreme. Stepping into an Old English White Jaguar E-Type or a Royal Ivory Morgan is like stepping back in time and immersing yourself in a world of refined cars that have stood the test of time. These cars serve as beacons of timeless design and evoke a sense of nostalgia that captivates car enthusiasts around the world.
