Model History

The Jaguar D-Type is a sports racing car that was produced by Jaguar Cars Ltd. between 1954 and 1957.  Although it shares several components with its predecessor, the C-Type, the majority of the car is radically different.

For example its innovative monocoque construction introduced aviation industry engineering to competition car design, and also an aeronautical understanding of aerodynamic efficiency. The Jaguar D-Type won the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1955, 1956 and 1957.

After Jaguar temporarily retired from racing as a factory team, the company offered the remaining unfinished D-Types as XKSS versions whose extra road-going equipment made them eligible for production sports car races in America.
