This is a replica of Jaguar’s well known Works D-type short nose, of which only 6 copies came out of Jaguar’s Coventry factory in 1954. Contrary to most copies of this car this is the original Short Nose racing car with retrofitted fin that can be unscrewed.

An amazing car that sent shivers down my spine when I first laid eyes on it. Having had the opportunity to examine original D-types at Goodwood Revival many times, I can safely say that it is not possible to create a replica that is closer to the original car than this. We are very honored to have been given the exclusive opportunity to sell this cars, and I already want to congratulate the future buyer who seizes this unique opportunity.

This particular car was built in the 1980s with a Jaguar S-type from 1964 as the starting material.

The car is from Realm Engineering a company that is very well known and respected in replica circles. The car was made by a private person in consultation with the company and the owner of Realm confirmed that this is an extremely well made replica.

The original, the real Jaguar D-Type was built in only 71 copies and was developed to take up the fight on the racetracks (mainly then Le Mans) with the then giant Ferrari for the coveted Le Mans title. Jaguar debuted at Le Mans in 1954 and then won 1955, – 56 and -57. The first victory was taken when the car was steered by the famous driver Mike Hawthorn. A rule change in 1957 then put a stop to further competition with the model.
