For sale by auction on Saturday 07 June 2014 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
The D-type Jaguar has a very special place in motoring
history. As a purpose built race car. its achievements were
outstanding as a Le Mans winner. To succeed at Le Mans was to
succeed in the world of car sales and having won the famous race
three times in a row. the car became an instant classic. The
D-type's exquisite lines surely make it a contender for the most
beautiful car ever designed. As well as the limited numbers
built and the multi-million pound price tag associated with these
symbolic cars today. it is entirely natural that copies will and
have been made.

Constructed originally by a private professional engineer and
racing driver based in Wiltshire. it was built over a four year
period. Mechanically. the car is based on Jaguar running gear with
a Jaguar 4. 2 litre straight six engine. fed by triple Weber
carburettors. Cooling is via the radiator with additional
Kenlow electric fans. The interior is functional. just as the
originals. with all the necessary switches readily to hand. the
doors normally always falling shut. have an ingenious and discreet
'prop' to hold them open. The product of an engineer used to simply
'solving problems'. Four-point harnesses and stunning
paintwork set the car off well. The oil pressure and water
temperatures read exactly as they should whilst cold and hot and
the view over the bonnet surely gets the adrenalin pumping even
when the car is at standstill.
