The Jaguar D-Type is a legendary car. It won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three years in a row and is still one of Jaguars best motorsports efforts. It used many of the same components with the C-Type but it had an entirely new chassis made from a tubular frame and aluminum body panels. One of the famous design cues of the D-Type was its shark fin that sat behind the drivers head. This fin was designed by an aeroplane engineer to keep the car stable at the 170 mph top speed it would reach on the Mulsanne Straight. That 1702.8 mph stop speed was actually 12 mph ahead of the second fastest car, a Ferrari. After the 1956 season Jaguar retired all of the unfinished D-Types and converted them for road use as the famous supercar the XKSS. At the peak of its performance the D-Type was able to grab the top five out of six spots for the 1957 Le Mans race.
