Footnotes

  • "This 190mph technical masterpiece, designed, built and prepared totally within Jaguar, was to achieve a hat-trick of spectacular Le Mans victories in the 1950s." - Paul Skilleter, Jaguar: The Sporting Heritage.
    The Jaguar C-Type had won the coveted Le Mans 24 Hour race twice (in 1951 and 1953) and was still competitive when Chief Engineer Bill Heynes and his team set about designing its successor. Moving the game on, Heynes abandoned the C-Type's tubular spaceframe chassis, adopting instead an aluminium monocoque body tub to which the aluminium front sub-frame carrying the engine and suspension was welded. It was an immensely far-sighted design, though later versions switched to a bolted-on steel framework. As ever, victory at Le Mans was Jaguar's first priority and so a great deal of attention was paid to getting the aerodynamics right. Aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer duly came up with an efficient, wind-cheating shape that enabled the D-Type to outrun the opposition despite having a deficit of over 100 horsepower on occasions. In so doing he also created one of the most beautiful racing sports cars ever made. As well as building cars for the works team, Jaguar also undertook a limited production run for sale to privateers and between 1954 and 1957 some 87 in total of all variants were produced at Jaguar's Coventry factory.
    Jaguar's multiple Le Mans wins in the 1950s - twice with the C-Type and three times with its D-Type successor - as well as numerous victories in the other great classic endurance events, have ensured a continuing healthy demand for replicas of these rare and exotic works sports-racers. Constructed to the highest standards, this re-creation of Jaguar's legendary Le Mans-winner is the work of Deetype Replicas Ltd of East Hanningfield, Essex. Unlike some D-Type replicas, this one is built to the same basic layout as the original, comprising an alloy monocoque centre section to which are attached tubular steel sub-frames supporting the engine and suspension. The bonnet and tail designs are the same as those of the 1956/57 'long nose' Le Mans D-Types. 'CJF 612B' is registered as a Jaguar E-Type of 1964 so has the 3.8-litre XK engine. Serviced for the sale by Edwards Motorsports (near Bristol), the car is offered with sundry bills, a Deetypes brochure, and a V5C Registration Certificate showing Barry Burnett as owner from 2005.
