    The JAGUAR D-Type was one of the most charismatic and successful sports/racing cars ever made. Introduced in 1954, its aerodynamic shape included a distinctive tail fin to increase stability at high speed.

    Powering this D-Type is Jaguar's legendary XK 3,4-litre in-line six-cylinder engine that developed 186 kilowatts. The car was capable of more than 270 kilometres per hour and zero to 96 kilometres per hour took 4,7 seconds.

    The Belgian Ecurie Francorchamps team bought the car prior to it being works-prepared for the 1956 Le Mans 24-Hour where it finished fourth, a feat repeated in 1957. In the following years it took part in many sporting events in Europe before being shipped to Japan for the inaugural race meeting at Suzuka.

    This rare short-nosed car eventually returned to Britain where for many years it was proudly displayed at Jaguar's Browns Lane factory.

    Car seen at Goodwood 4/19, unfortunately involved in an altercation, nobody hurt.

    The car was owned or kept at John Cooper's premises some time around the late Sixties/ early Seventies, according to a former mechanic. It (still?) had a wide angle head at that stage. At some point whilst there it was fitted with an experimental exhaust configuration, leaving the old round-port W/A short header manifolds behind. These were saved from scrap and sold years later to a friend of the mechanic who dabbled in used parts.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
