Vehicle Report


The legendary D-Type Jaguar needs no introduction to the classic car community. When it comes to a list of the most evocative sportscars of the 1950s, the D-Type is invariably highly rated with its Le Mans winning pedigree, sleek lines and supremely powerful XK six-cylinder motor. In the years since, many have tried their hand at re-creating the magic of the D-Type, some more successfully than others. This D-type replica is the work of a dedicated Australian enthusiast who hand-built it between 1983 and 1998, for road use. It’s based around a New-Zealand made Tempero semi-monocoque chassis with aluminium panels, fitted with Jaguar mechanicals.
