5. 1965 Jaguar E-Type
In Season 5 of Mad Men, before taking his life for embezzling money from Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, Jared Harris’ Lane Pryce received this car as a gift from his wife who was unaware of their financial woes. Shortly afterward, he unsuccessfully tries to commit suicide in the vehicle, though I won’t spoil the reason why he fails.
Notorious for being less than reliable, the 1965 E-Type is the quintessential British sports car and an emblem of fantastic 1960s design. An icon from an iconic era era.
