In June 1954, at the Le Mans 24-hour race, Jaguar launched the car that had been in development for eighteen months. The D-type finished in second place in its debut race and went on to win the Le Mans 24-hour race for the next three years running, becoming Jaguar’s most successful racing car. Now, just over 60 years on, THE JAGUAR D-TYPE, the first full and comprehensive history dedicated solely to one of the most beautiful racing cars ever. The book includes the story of the design and development of the D-type, as well as a racing history of both the Works cars and those belonging to private owners. The focus is on the D-type, but naturally included is the XK-SS, a road-legal sports car produced after Jaguar retired from racing, by converting 16 of the unsold, unfinished D-types. As is customary for Palawan editions, there is an extensive section setting out the history, both written and photographic, of every D-type made.  Appendices include technical descriptions, road tests and biographies of the works drivers and the technical staff involved in the development and racing of the D-type. Limited to just 250 copies, numbered 1 - 250, this edition is bound in green buckram cloth, silkscreened and silver foil blocked on the front and spine, and encased in a green buckram cloth slipcase with silver foil blocking.
