The best thing about driving a classic car is getting a sense of exactly where on the evolutionary scale of design any particular vehicle lies, and this is never more apparent that when you drive a Jaguar D-Type. Whilst it may share the basic engine design of its predecessor, the unsurprisingly named C-Type, driving a Jaguar D-Type will show you how the introduction of aeronautic approach to aerodynamics on a car made for an unwavering ability to leave the competition trailing in its dust.
Because it was built specifically to win races, driving a D-Type Jaguar is a dream come true for any classic car fan, and the Jaguar D-Type has a pedigree that will make you feel as though you are driving a little piece of history. This model was designed with winning in mind and the team who created it had the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race in their sights, convinced that with groundbreaking design and specifically tailored elements to suit every section of the course, it wouldn't be long before the D-Type Jaguar was sailing to victory. And, of course it did - not once, but three times in a row.
