Roadster
Designer: Malcolm Sayer
Chassis #: 1E31400
Engine #: 7E4967-9
Gearbox #: EJ4111
High bid of $75,000 at 2007 Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction. (did not sell)
This 1956/66 Jaguar D-Type is an Alloy Recreation which was created in 1999 by Dunford Design & Development Ltd in the United Kingdom. It has been titled as a 1965 Jaguar based on its chassis. It is powered by a 4235cc dual overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine that is capable of producing an estimated 300 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and disc brakes on all four corners.

It is believed that 87 D-Types were created, with twenty of those being pre-production prototypes and test versions. In modern times, the demand for these vehicles have continued to climb. As such, the replica market has been providing near-identical examples for enthusiasts to enjoy. This is one such example, built to high standards with many positive upgrades. The vehicle was built atop a 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.22 FHC chassis and given a larger 4.2-liter Jaguar engine; the original D-Types had a 3.5-liter unit.

This car is finished in British Racing Green with a green interior and was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell between $140,000 - $160,000. At auction, the car did not appeal to buyers as hoped. It would appear that the clientele at the Amelia Island auction demand perfection, originality, and the authentic art work itself. Bidding reached $115,000, but failed to meet the reserve.

It was later brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $125,000-$150,000. Bidding reached $75,000, again failing to meet the reserve, and again leaving the auction unsold.
