In Partnership with Jaguar and\u00a0Land Rover\r\nWhen the Jaguar E-Type was released in 1961, it was faster and more stunning than the supercars of the day, including examples from Aston, Maserati and Ferrari (Enzo Ferrari himself even famously remarked that it was \u201cthe most beautiful car in the world"). One glance over its thrusting hood, wire wheels and swooping fenders and you'd be hard-pressed to disagree.\r\n\r\nIt quickly became the must-have sports car, owned by stars the world over including Steve McQueen, Frank Sinatra, Roy Orbison and later David Bowie, who first fell in love with the car when he was 16 years-old (and eventually came to own a famous black 1968 series 1 .5 drop-top version).\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=kVUOYKRYlPU\r\n\r\nThe E-Type caused a stir when it first hit the streets, and became a British icon synonymous with '60s pop culture (remember Austin Powers' famous Jaguar Shaguar?) with a strong influence over car design to this day. Similarly, David Bowie with his own brand of innovation, reinvention and stagecraft over five decades became a British icon significantly influencing popular music and style.\r\n\r\nSo when Jaguar Australia approached renowned airbrush artist\u00a0Daus von Roe\u00a0(a.k.a Ryan Cribbin)\u00a0to create a piece that represents the Jaguar spirit it was a connection he was quick to make.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cJaguar asked me to create a piece to celebrate the launch of their new Collection and for me nothing embodies the brand, it\u2019s British heritage and style more than the Jaguar E-Type and Bowie", says Cribbin.\r\n\r\n"That\u2019s where the idea for the E-Type bonnet art came from\u201d.\r\n\r\nRyan\u2019s is currently working on a piece of bonnet art for the iconic marque (you can check out his progress below), which will be completed on the 10th of May, and you and a friend could be there to experience the exclusive event.\r\n\r\nTo be finished in a live demonstration at Jaguar\u2019s Collection launch at the Bondi Junction Jaguar retail store, Ryan will unveil his work in front of a crowd of dignitaries ands special guests.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cI\u2019ve seen Ryan painting live before and it\u2019s incredible\u201d, says Jaguar Land Rover Managing Director Matthew Wiesner.\r\n\r\n\u201cI\u2019m amazed at the detail he can achieve using an airbrush and I like the Union Jack stripe crossing Bowie\u2019s face, reminiscent of Ziggy\u2019s lightning bolt\u201d.\r\n\r\nThe E-Type bonnet art will be on display at the Westfield Bondi Junction Jaguar Land Rover retail store from 11th \u2013 13th May before it gets removed to have a clear coat applied and auctioned at an upcoming charity event. Visit the store, enjoy a complimentary coffee with the friendly staff and experience the artwork and the new Collection first hand.\r\nWIN! 1 of 10 Passes to\u00a0Jaguar\u00a0and Land Rover Collections Exclusive\u00a0Bondi Junction Launch Party\r\nMan of Many is delighted to offer our readers double passes to the Jaguar Land Rover Collection Launch, 6:30pm Thursday 10th May at the Jaguar Land Rover Bondi Junction store.\r\n\r\nWIN 1 of 2 Double Pass to the Launch of the Jaguar and Land Rover 2018 Collections\r\n\r\nVisit Bondi Junction Jaguar Land Rover\r\nHave you subscribed to\u00a0Man of Many?
