Jaguar Classic will build 25 D-Type continuation cars. But what’s the point of all this?


Jaguar only built 75 D-Types back in the 1950s. It intended to build 100. So now, more than 60 years later, the marque’s Jaguar Classic division is creating and assembling by hand 25 additional “vintage” two-seaters, using brand new components. The goal in building these alluring “Continuation Series” cars is not just to recognize and publicize the enviable history and heritage of the venerable British brand. It is to make money.
