1968 Jaguar D-Type Replica
Registration no. DKZ 3781
Chassis no. 111015DN
Engine no. F952
Sold for £33,925 inc. premium
Constructed to the highest standards in 1992, this replica of Jaguar's legendary Le Mans winning D-Type uses an LR Roadsters RAM body/chassis kit and is powered by a 3.8-litre XK engine featuring triple Weber carburettors and coupled to a four-speed all synchromesh manual/overdrive gearbox. Constructed around a tubular-steel backbone spaceframe chassis, the LR Roadsters D-Type features steel-braced glassfibre bodywork in the long nose, long fin, passenger-carrying style with full-width windscreen first seen on the works Le Mans cars in 1955, while the wheels, lights and instruments are said to be to correct specification. Based almost exclusively on Jaguar running gear, unlike some of its rivals, the RAM D-Type was described by Kit Cars & Specials magazine as having 'undisputed mechanical integrity,' and was reckoned 'one of the most desirable replicas we have yet laid our hands on.' The factory claimed a performance, depending on engine tune, of 0-60mph in approximately 5.9 seconds and a maximum speed in overdrive top approaching 150mph, stunning figures even by today's standards.
Finished in British racing Green with grey leather interior, this authentic looking D-Type replica has covered only 5,366 miles since construction and is described by the vendor as in generally good condition. The car is offered with history file, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document.
