Signage: The D-Type Jaguar was supposed to win at Le Mans in 1954 just like the C-Type had done the year before. Alas, a Ferrari won, but aerodynamic lessons were learned regarding the extended bonnet. In 1957, this car was on the starting line at Le Mans. Another D-Type Jaguar won the race and this car ran 3rd. It is one of only 10 D-Types to ever place at Le Mans. This car has Serial No. XKD513 and is powered by the 3442 cc (210 cu. in) six-cylinder, in-line engine with double overhead camshafts, two valves per cylinder, three dual-throat Weber carburetors, and develops 270 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. With Walt Hansgen driving, the D-Type Jaguar won SCCA C-Modified Championships in 1956 and 1957. The D's highest speed ever - 185 mph at Bonneville - was also recorded in the U.S.
