Gallery: Jaguar D-Type reborn

Jaguar has already resurrected modern-day recreations of the classic Lightweight E-Type and XKSS, and now it is doing the same with a fresh production run of the D-Type. Enjoy our photo gallery that shows off some of the incredible detail of these cars, then click over here to read the full story

“Recreating the nine D-type-derived XKSSs was hugely satisfying, and an even bigger technical challenge than the six missing Lightweight E-types, but lessons learned from the XKSS project have given us a head start on the final 25 D-types. Each one will be absolutely correct, down to the very last detail, just as Jaguar’s Competitions Department intended.”

“The Jaguar D-type is one of the most iconic and beautiful competition cars of all time, with an outstanding record in the world’s toughest motor races. And it’s just as spectacular today. The opportunity to continue the D-type’s success story, by completing its planned production run in Coventry, is one of those once-in-a-lifetime projects that our world-class experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic are proud to fulfil.”
