Vehicle OverviewTHIS TRULY MAGNIFICENT 1956 JAGUAR XKD REPRESENTS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PERIODS IN AUTOMOTIVE RACING HISTORY FOR JAGUAR !!
The Jaguar D-Type is a sports racing car that was produced by Jaguars Cars LTD. between 1954 and 1957. Although it shares many of its mechanical components with the C-Type, including the basic straight 6 engine design (initially 3.4 litres and uprated to 3.8 litres in the late fifties), the structure of the car was radically different. The innovative monocoque construction brought aviation industry technology to competition car design, together with an aeronautical understanding of aerodynamic efficiency.
After Jaguar temporarily retired from racing as a factory team in 1956, the company offered the remaining unfinished D-Types as XKSS versions whose additional road-going equipment-including a second seat, passenger-side door, side windows, full-width framed windscreen and windscreen wipers, trimmed interior, folding hood, and bumpers-made them eligible for production sports car races in America.
On the evening of 12 February 1957, a fire broke out at Jaguar's Browns Lane plant and destroyed nine of the 25 cars that were in various stages of completion. With the requisite jigs and tooling also destroyed, this effectively ended production of the XKSS version, although Jaguar later converted two additional D-Types.
Jaguar D-Types won the LeMans 24-hour race in 1955, 1956 and 1957.
Total D-Type production is thought to have included 18 factory team cars, 53 customer cars, and 16 XKSS versions. This is an opportunity that only comes once in a lifetime . Please call us at 732-254-2020 to schedule your visit . We do accept trades and we finance as well.
