Lynx Cars, the world-renowned company, arguably builds the best Jaguar D-type recreations in the world. Using the Jaguar E-type as its base and utilising its running gear, this sets the perfect platform for a road going D-type. Lynx focused on every correct detail to produce the most accurate example of the legendary Jaguar, with most parts being technically identical to the originals. The Lynx D-type on offer is built under the Longnose specification, with the elongated bonnet and tail fin, modelled off the 1957 Le Mans winning D-type driven by Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb. Built off an early Jaguar E-type, this Lynx D uses the 3.8 XK engine, with correct triple weber DCOEs, correct manifolds, pistons, camshafts, valve gear and uses a semi synchro Moss gearbox. The centre section is constructed of stressed monocoque with hand rolled aluminium which has been hand beaten and welded. The bonnet and rear section are also crafted from hand rolled aluminium to perfectly replicate the original Jaguar. The car was ordered and built for Robin Sturgess, who is well known for his C-Type and E-Type racing successes in the late 1950s and early 1960s and owner of Sturgess of Leicester, one of the UKs oldest Jaguar retailers. The car has covered just over 11,000 miles, has been in the same ownership since built and comes with a comprehensive history and maintenance file including original invoices and correspondence. The D-Type has been used, amongst other things, for Dealership promotional activities and is well known on the Jaguar club scene. It is a sad departure from the Sturgess family as it has given huge pleasure to everyone who has ever driven it or seen it. This Lynx D-type was completed and registered in 1989, finished in British racing green with a green leather interior and full-size screen. The car has developed a healthy patina over the years, which adds to the special and quite personal history of the car. Fitted with the side-exit exhaust, the glorious rumble of the straight-six XK engine is testament to how the age of motorsport should be remembered. For any serious petrolhead, a Lynx D-type should be at the top of the list for ownership, with this car offering that very opportunity. Please dont hesitate to contact us if you require any further technical information or wish to book a viewing and test-drive.

This is the remarkable Lynx D type which over thirty years ago set five National Endurance Speed Records on the banked test circuit at MIRA. Amazingly, these records still stand. The all-Scots driving team included none other than Grand Prix legend Innes Ireland, Rally queen Louise Aitken-Walker and Hill Climb Champion Kenny Allen. CKL are thrilled to offer 57 SAL, Lynxs 17th D-type order and the legendary Lynx D-type which claimed those National Endurance Speed Records in 1987. The car is still in its record breaking specification and remains completely usable either on the road or track. Original Lynx D-types are known to be the best in the world when it comes to representations of the Jaguar D-type, with accurately hand constructed panel work and authentically detailed interiors. The Lynx D-type, however, could be designed and styled to meet the both the needs of the driver and the different versions, whether this be for a short nose variant, with full-width screen and fitted with a 3.8 XK engine for example. Best of all, they are supremely usable. 57 SAL is an aluminium bodied Long nose D-type, fitted with an uprated 4.2 engine which utilises D-type valves, cams and triple 45DCOE weber carburettors. Transmission is an all synchro 4 speed gearbox. This car is beautifully patinated and remains in the Ecurie Ecosse blue livery in which it set the records. It has two-door bodywork, a blue leather interior and full-width screen. With a long-standing history with Lynx and CKL, most of those familiar with 57 SAL would regard it as the most desirable Lynx D-type on the planet. It comes with a rich History file containing information, and correspondence about the record attempts. There are also photographs and video taken at the time. Please dont hesitate to contact us should you require more information or wish to book a viewing or a test drive.
