about

The Jaguar D-Type is the iconic 1950s Jaguar sports racing car that took a hat-trick of Le Mans victories. Revolutionary at the time, the D-Type was designed with aerodynamics in mind, and featured an aluminum, monocoque cockpit section, a bag-type fuel tank in the tail, and a dry-sump engine lubrication system.

Today, genuine D-Types are highly sought-after, and many examples are still active in historic racing. This Manual includes contemporary photographs and detailed images of D-types in the workshop today, as well as input from restoration specialists and engineers. Altogether, this is a fascinating insight into a legendary sports racing car.
Chas Parkerhas written a number of books about motorsport, including Haynes Manuals for the D-type Jaguar and Bugatti Type 35 and others. He was short-listed, together with co-author Philip Porter, for the 2017 RAC Motoring Book of the Year Award for his book on the 1953 Le Mans-winning C-type Jaguar.
