the film star and the fast car; LEGEND OF THE E-TYPE.

Byline: KEITH DRAPER

FRENCH film actor Jacques Charrier, the second of Brigitte Bardot's husbands, had the honour of being the first personal buyer of an E-type. He flew to the Geneva Show from Rome to go on a demonstration run in the 150 mph car, and immediately signed on the dotted line. He is pictured at the couple's apartment in 1960 just after the birth of their son. Charrier's marriage to the international film star with wild honey hair and pouting lips lasted from 1959 to 1962.
