If you dreamed of racing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, then you probably know what makes a great race car (and it’s more than just “plain old fast”). Historically, Jaguar is no stranger to the Le Mans’ title – to date, they have won seven times – and you can enter to win a 1963 Jaguar XKE in this latest Omaze campaign. Expertly restored by Classic Showcase, you might just end up behind the wheel of a race car dubbed “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari.

The 1963 Jaguar XKE takes you back to old Hollywood style with the same elegance and speed, which knocked the socks off of ladies and gentlemen alike in the 1960s. Grab a friend, grip the original steering wheel, and test out those 150 mph top speeds. The 1963 Jaguar XKE features a 3.8-liter in-line six-cylinder engine with 265 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque. An upgraded five-speed manual helps channel that power to the rear wheels.
The original black top comes with it, so even a little rain can’t ruin your good time.
Opening the glossy black driver’s door to slide into the caramel tan seat is a truly timeless feeling, but that doesn’t mean the XKE doesn’t boast some modern luxuries. Full Bluetooth capability is built into the vintage-looking stereo that graces the dash with switches and dials.
