1957 Jaguar D-Type Long Nose Competition Replica. The Jaguar D type is possibly the greatest 1950's sports racer ever built. It dominated the Le Mans 24 Heures race for three consecutive years 1955/56/57. The construction was years ahead of any other manufacture designs. I would like it clearly understood that this car is a good 'reproduction' not an original one of the eight 'long nose' D type Jaguars ever manufactured between 1955 and 1957. This tribute recreation was performed by one of America's leading Jaguar restoration firms Predator Performance in Tampa, Florida. ENGINE: The engine is a Jaguar 4.2 liter twin cam, with triple 2' SU's, developing over 350 bhp @ 5800 rpm. CHASSIS: Square painted tubular steel, the Jaguar E type that followed as a road car although longer in wheelbase also used a similar space frame (or chassis) to the D type so the chassis of this car bears a resemblance to both. GEARBOX: Is a 5-speed all-synchro T5. WHEELS: Correct Dunlop Alloy Lightweight Racing Wheels with Three Eared Spinners. BODY: A mixture of Glass and aluminum riveted & bonded in the center section strength and a more original appearance then painted original British Racing Green. Number backgrounds (roundels) are available for the nose doors and rear tail and served as identification for the pits at the Le Mans 24 hour races. BRAKES: Dual cylinder non power assisted Jaguar/Girling disc brakes front and rear. SUSPENSION: Original D types employed torsion bar suspension front and rear whereas the later E type (and S types) went to independent upper and lower wishbones with coil over shock absorber suspension (dual coils/shocks on the rear) for better ride and more predictable handling but is difficult to spot at first glance. STEERING: Rack and pinion 2.75 turns lock to lock. DIFFERENTIAL: Limited slip with 3.54:1 ratio. OTHER FEATURES: All instrumentation is correct and the wood rim steering wheel is removable. A full width Plexiglas windscreen, doors on both sides open and rear boot compartment for spare as all cars also had to carry a spare wheel as was a requirement at Le Mans in 1956. This car has been in private collections for years.
