LR D-type Raynard designed chassis

The LR D-type chassis was developed some years ago benefiting from design input from Raynard racing enhancing the torsional strength and limiting flex whilst maintaining the lowest possible weight.  

With recent developments on that theme the LR Chassis now offers strength and handling characteristics suitable for competitive track use, so demonstrated with the supply of Chassis and bodies for the Revival Motorsport project.

High quality, detail and size accurate molds are used to produce the bodies.

Options on the style of D-type to build are accommodated for with the Short nose - Competition long nose - the Head fairing and Tail fin all available.  These can also be mixed and matched dependant on what you want to build.  The LR D-type utilises Jaguar based mechanicals maintaining authenticity in the finished product but recent development of the components used i.e. the XJ6 independent rear axle, offers later engineering and design.  The handling is improved along with the comfort the new set-up provides and there is more flexibility in the suspension geometry and configuration for use.  The LR D-type now offers the Kit build, the replica builder or the racer a positive base to start from and continues to encourage completion of the build with high quality GRP bodies and components to complete.  All which has to be said, supplied at very competitive pricing making whatever use you choose to apply the finished product to, very affordable.....

In 1954 Jaguar raced the first D-type, a short nose version with Tail Fin, at the Le Mans 24hrs race.  Following and building on the success of the works C-type,which won race in 1953,  the D-type missed out by only 2Km after racing the Ferrari for 24hrs.  This was the start of a development of the D-type by Jaguar with one ambition, to win Le Mans.  It also became a production racing car, like the C-type where Jaguar built for sale to drivers and teams, indeed competing against their customers in many races with their works cars.  Needless to say Jaguar won Le Mans with the D-type the following year.
