Jaguar's New 'Continuation' Project Is A Spectacular D-Type

Posted February 08, 2018

Fresh from completing nine continuation series examples of the XKSS, Jaguar is turning its attention to another notable gap in its production history: finishing up that 100-car run of the D-Type race vehicle. Every aspect of the D-types built for clients from 2018 will be created to authentic, original specification.

An engineering prototype of the "new" D-Type will be showcased today (Wednesday) at the Paris Salon Retromobile show, and 25 further examples will be hand-built for customers at Jaguar Land Rover's Classic Works in Warwickshire, UK. Buyers will have the option of 1955-specification Shortnose or 1956-spec Longnose bodywork, but as with previous continuation models, prices are expected to be well in excess of £1m. "And it's just as spectacular today", Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director Tim Hannig said. Given the D-Type's pedigree-it won Le Mans in 1955, 1956, and 1957-nothing less would be acceptable. However, only 75 were completed, which is why the period-correct cars are being manufactured now. And now, over 60 years later, Jaguar is bringing the iconic D-Type back from the dead.

The high levels of attention to detail are reflected in the fact that it takes around 7,000 man hours to build one D-Type. As you'd expect, the bonnet is longer, it has the fin behind the driver's head, a wide-angle cylinder head and "quick-change" brake calipers.

Coming to replace the C-Type, Jaguar's D-Type kept the 3.4-liter XK engine, but engineers slapped it with triple Weber carburetors, bumping the power output to 245 hp. However, previous "continuations" from Jaguar Classic have typically cost in excess of £1 million each, or somewhere around $1,230,089 Dollars.

An engineer told the National Transportation Safety Board he had mistaken a signal and started braking seconds before derailing. The train was travelling from NY to Miami when it hit the goods train, causing its lead engine and several carriages to derail.

The D-type is the third continuation vehicle from Jaguar Classic, complementing the six missing Lightweight E-types completed in 2014-15 and nine XKSSs built in 2017-18.

"Each one will be absolutely correct, down to the very last detail, just as Jaguar's Competitions Department intended".
