ORC is proud to offer two genuine D-Types and a tool room copy with FIA HTP.
1957 Short Nose D-Type
We have available directly from our clients a 1957 Short Nose D-Type which was a Works Experimental Car and was the first Jaguar to fitted with a GRP body, when the Competition Department was exploring ways of making their cars lighter and more competitive.
It was driven by Jaguar's text driver Norman Dewis, while at the Works, but later fitted with a traditional all alloy body. However it retains its original GRP body, separately, as evidence of the important part it played in the Jaguar story. PDF available on request. Competitively priced: £POA
1955 Short Nose D-Type
Historic D-Type Jaguar. Period Competition History including wins at Spa, Silverstone & Goodwood. Driven in period by many of the top drivers. Eligible for the most Prestigious Historic Events. Very well documented car and a blue chip investment. Serious enquiries only please. PDF available on request. £POA.
Short Nose D-type Recreation - FIA HTP
Similar to the car shown here, which was sold earlier this year, we will shortly take delivery of a tool room copy of a Short Nose D-Type. Correct in absolutely every respect; indistinguishable from the original; built with meticulous attention to detail and eligible for FIA HTP and thus acceptance for Historic Racing, subject, as always, to invitation. Coming soon. Please contact us in advance if you have serous interest.
Genuine Ex-Works D-Type Spec 3.8 Engine
A rare opportunity to acquire a genuine Ex-Works Jaguar Engine built by the Competition Department to D-Type specification for privateer, but never used. Could be used as the all important missing part of the jigsaw for a race car project, or perhaps as a spare engine for a historic car. Competitively priced and not to be missed.
