Jaguar resumes production of iconic D-type racing car

Jaguar has announced that it will restart production of its iconic D-type racing car for the first time in over 60 years.

The luxury British motor company will hand-build just 25 new models of the classic D-type, one of which is being debuted this week at the Salon Rétromobile show in Paris.

It has been 62 years since the last D-type example was built in 1956 – Jaguar had planned to manufacture 100 D-types in 1955, but only managed to build 75.

By restarting production of the iconic sports car with 25 all-new, period-correct models, the company is finally fulfilling its original aim 62 years later.
