When you think Jaguar D-type the first image that springs to mind is the Long nose with Fin version that so impressively dominated Le Mans in 1955 and 1957. But a short nose Jaguar D-type (without fin ) also won Le Mans in 1956 thanks to Ecurrie Ecosse. They won against all odds, beating the Aston Martins.
TWR Replicas can build your D-type replica in both formats taken advantage of forming bucks taken from original cars back in the 70’s. In fact the choice of configuration is entirely your and although we don’t encourage it, you can mix’n’match, Long nose and hump, short nose and fin. What we do encourage is that the D-type we build for you is correct in detail and meets your performance requirements. A TWRR D-type also benefits from a full length tubular steel chassis offering offer greater strength and ultimately stiffer handling which in turn provides better road holding.
As with all the TWR Replicas the cars not only replicate the shape but the mark by using all Jaguar running gear with the only variation being the Toyota Supra 5-speed gearbox, but you can opt for the Jaguar unit. Jaguar Engines of the specification you desire and fully adjustable suspension makes this a compelling car for both the enthusiast and the racer alike.
