This 1960 Jaguar D-Type replica is a full performance build - right down to the sound of the side pipes. So dig into all the details on a sleek high-quality retro machine that will make your favorite roads feel like Le Mans.
If you are going to get a replica of a D-Type, this is the exact way to do it. The long-nose version in a deep blue Ecurie Ecosse livery makes it a ringer for the winner of the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is a RAMLM kit, and it was built quiet nicely. It's a faithful English-built tribute that has the swoopy fenders, power bulge hood, Lexan racing windshield, and single offset tailfin to try and streamline the driver as best as possible. This is well-detailed package, right down to the replica Dunlop racing wheels and Pirelli Cinturato tires.
The interior is pure racecar. The seat is contoured to the racing tub; there's a wood-rimmed steering wheel on a quick release column; and the shifter is in the riveted metal center section. Oh yes, this absolutely feels like a proper open-top vintage racer. There's even a full Smiths gauge package, and the large speedo and tach are correctly reversed. And for those times when you want to share the fun with someone else, the side hard tonneau can be removed and you have a proper door, seat, and seatbelt for a passenger.
One of the great things about owning a quality replica is you get a vintage style, but with some very handy improvements. When you tilt the whole front end forward, you get the unmistakable look of Jaguar's awesome DOHC XK motor. It's a clean presentation where everyone gets to see great race-ready details, like the triple set of dual-barrel Weber carbs. But while the original D-Types were limited to 3442cc, this has a larger 3.8-liter powerhouse. It fires up with a powerful sound out of the split exhaust header that exits opposite the driver. You'll love tuning in this wonderful motor's soundtrack using the racing style throttle blips to shift the four-speed manual transmission. This is built on a strong steel chassis with modern shocks. Plus, while the D-Type had to have a live rear axle, this benefits from one of the greatest rear suspension ever made: the Jaguar independent rear end that debuted on the E-type. Not only is it considered one of the strongest setups around, but also it has inboard disc brakes for better weight distribution.
The sale comes complete with paperwork including maintenance records, service manuals, receipts, and a log book. This is the quality build that gives you the look of a multi-million-dollar classic, and it even offers an upgraded experience of a true racecar feeling. So if you know how special this car is, then you know this is a fleeting opportunity. Call now!
