Produced for nearly three years between 1954-1957, the Jaguar D-Type was the successor model to the earlier made C-Type and carried the same XK series engine as her predecessor. Developed specifically to compete at the Le Mans 24-hour race, the brain behind all her wins was Jaguar’s Sports Racing Team Manager, Frank Raymond England.
What was unique about this car was her design not only adopted the highest principles of aerodynamics but also incorporated few elements of aircraft design.
Debuting first at the 1954 Le Mans 24-hours race, this car model took the first position at the 1957 Le Mans, when the car sponsored by the Scottish racing team Ecurie Ecosse, driven by British drivers Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb won the race on 22-23rd June, 1957 at the Circuit de la Sarthe, France after doing 327 laps.
