Auto Insurance Comparison - Iso Grifo vs Jaguar E-Type

Both these cars are truly spectacular, they were ahead of their time at the point they were built and they are still amazing cars even today. Personally I would choose the Iso Grifo, I just think the hood of the car is fresh.. But:

Which one would you choose?
 
Right lets get started:
 

Iso Grifo

 

 






Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $650 month  


Renzo Rivolta hired ex-Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini to help him create his line of automobiles. After introducing the Iso Rivolta, Bizzarrini wanted to make a sports car. With the help of designer Guirgetto Guigairo, came the Iso Grifo. The Grifo was quite a success, but Piero Rivolta, now running the company due to death of his father, wanted something a little special. He decided to upgrade the look of the Grifo with the elongated nose with hidden headlights, but he still felt he needed something for his best customers. The Grifo Targa was just the answer. Iso only built four long-nosed Targas, obviously a very rare part of Iso history.

Jaguar E-Type

 





Average insurance for middle-age man, safe neighbourhood: $750/month
 

The Series 1 was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961. The domestic market launch came four months later in July 1961. The cars at this time used the triple SU carburetted 3.8 litre 6-cylinder Jaguar XK6 engine from the XK150S. The first 300 cars built had flat floors and external hood (bonnet) latches. These cars are rare and more valuable. After that, the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the twin hood latches moved to inside the car. The 3.8 litre engine was increased to 4.2 litres in October 1964.

All E-Types featured independent coil spring rear suspension with torsion bar front ends, and four wheel disc brakes, in-board at the rear, all were power-assisted. Jaguar was one of the first auto manufacturers to equip cars with disc brakes as standard from the XK150 in 1958. The Series 1 can be recognised by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small "mouth" opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights above bumpers and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear.

  23. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in
    Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Kudos

    that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

  33. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked
    and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to
    no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
