Luxury motor company Jaguar announced that it will restart production of the iconic D-type race car for the first time in 60 years. The British brand will hand-build 25 limited-edition models that will be debuted at the Salon Retromobile convention in Paris this week.
Jaguar originally intended to create 100 of the original cars, but only completed 75. By creating 25 more this year, it will finally reach its goal. Known as one of the most stunning and iconic competition cars of all time, the D-type race car won an outstanding record in the world's most challenging motor races.
The new models will be engineered at the Jaguar Land Rover facility in England. The new D-type race car models will be made to the exact specifications of the original cars that were made years ago.
