Iconic Jaguar D-type back in production 60 years on

Jaguar Classic announces D-Type continuation Jaguar restarts D-type racer production

25 Jaguar D-Types are going back into production, all in original Le Mans specification.

There is now only one "new" Jaguar D-Type model in existence, an engineering prototype Longnose featuring the extended bonnet, tail fin behind the driver's head, wide-angle cylinder head and quick release brake calipers.

Director of Jaguar Land Rover Classic Tim Hannig says the cars are an opportunity for Jaguar to continue the D-Type's story long after it began.

The first of these models will be shown at the Salon Retromobile in Paris today, with the remaining 24 customers able to choose between having a 1955-spec shortnose or a 1956-spec longnose body type. The last racing D-type was built in 1956. At the time, Jaguar had meant to deliver 100 D-Types, but fell short at 75 examples, so Jaguar Classic has restarted production to fulfil the full allocation.

While the D-Type took victories all over the world, its most famous accomplishments came at the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours, where it took victory three times between 1955 and 1957. Jaguar developed the D-Type with aerodynamic efficiency in mind, and the exterior design portrays many influences from the aviation industry.

The work is being done in Coventry, England, by Jaguar Land Rover Classic, the brand's official source of authentic cars, factory-correct services, restorations and genuine parts.

In 2016, Jaguar built nine continuation examples of the famed XKSS. Jaguar itself has already brought back the XKSS, committed to 10 'reborn" E-Types, and even gone so far as to stick an electric motor in a "future-proofed' version of the same model.

The latest run of D-types will cost "in excess of £1 million [Dh5.1m]", according to thisismoney.co.uk.

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

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