Porter Press – Jaguar D-type – The story of XKD 526


SKU: CMH-Book-PP-XKD-526

Thanks to three successive victories between 1955 and 1957, the Jaguar D-type established the Coventry marque’s place in Le Mans 24 Hours folklore. With a long, elegantly bonnet and distinctive tail fin, the D-type quickly became one of the most recognisable sports racers in the wold – as well as one of the most successful in period. This book focuses on the incredible history of XKD 526, one of only three Jaguar D-types registered new in Australia and the only D-Type to ever be fitted with a hard-top roof. While the car’s competition pedigree was forged at some internationally celebrated circuits including Bathurst and Longford, it also raced at delightfully named bygones such as Gnoo Blas and Catalina Park. This hardback book is a comprehensive history of its distinguished track record.

The Jaguar D-Type XKD 526 featured in this book is well-known to The Classic Motor Hub and is usually kept in a private collection here with us.
