1954 JAGUAR D-TYPE

Posted by Glenn Rowswell on 17th May 2017

There are cars with history, and then there is OKV 2. The second works D-Type to roll out of the factory in Coventry in 1954 was immediately handed to Stirling Moss, where he and co driver Peter Walker set fastest time in practice and a new record speed on the Mulsanne Straight. A chipper 172.97 miles per hour. It was the Lead Team car and one of only 5 Factory team cars to ever race at LeMans, the circuit the car was built to win.
