An insight into the design, engineering, maintenance and operation of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning sports car
The Jaguar D-Type is the iconic 1950s Jaguar sports racing car that took a hat-trick of Le Mans victories. Revolutionary at the time, the D-Type was designed with aerodynamics in mind, and featured an aluminum, monocoque cockpit section, a bag-type fuel tank in the tail, and a dry-sump engine lubrication system.
Today, genuine D-Types are highly sought-after, and many examples are still active in historic racing. This Manual includes contemporary photographs and detailed images of D-types in the workshop today, as well as input from restoration specialists and engineers. Altogether, this is a fascinating insight into a legendary sports racing car.
