Evaluation: One of 25 Continuation D-Types. Still looks new.
Bottom Line: The third of Jaguar Classic’s Continuation series, these new D-Types “completed” the original car’s production run with 25 units on top of the original’s 75. The most common (if you can call 25 cars “common”) of the Continuation Jags, the D also sold out quickly despite a seven-figure price tag and the limited opportunities for use (many top-level racing events will turn them away). Just one has come to auction before, in 2020, and it brought $1.325M. With fees added, the reported high bid would have put this car close enough to that amount, and it should have been considered. Just one of the three Jaguar Continuation cars offered at Pebble Beach this year sold successfully, which is a bit surprising. If a C-Type Continuation had been there to complete the set, maybe it would have excited bidders more.
