£1,750.00

The Jaguar D-Type
By Anthony Pritchard

Limited to just 250 copies, numbered 1 – 250, this edition is bound in green buckram cloth, silkscreened and silver foil blocked on the front and spine, and encased in a green buckram cloth slipcase with silver foil blocking.

About the book:

In June 1954, at the Le Mans 24-hour race, Jaguar launched the car that had been in development for eighteen months. The D-type finished in second place in its debut race and went on to win the Le Mans 24-hour race for the next three years running, becoming Jaguar’s most successful racing car. Now, just over 60 years on, Palawan presents The Jaguar D-Type, the first full and comprehensive history dedicated solely to one of the most beautiful racing cars ever.

The book includes the story of the design and development of the D-Type, as well as a racing history of both the Works cars and those belonging to private owners. The focus is on the D-Type, but naturally included is the XK-SS, a road-legal sports car produced after Jaguar retired from racing, by converting 16 of the unsold, unfinished D-Types.

As is customary for Palawan editions, there is an extensive section setting out the history, both written and photographic, of every D-Type made.  Appendices include technical descriptions, road tests and biographies of the Works drivers and the technical staff involved in the development and racing of the D-Type.

Comprising 420 pages, with over 500 photographs, the book measures 290 x 340mm and is exquisitely designed.

Photographs are from the publishers website, this copy number 200 of 250 is as new, still in publishers tissue and shipping box.
