From the Back Cover: This superb book in the Great Cars series tells the story of one of the most historically interesting of all Jaguar D-types--a car that has raced more than any other D-type. The long and varied life of XKD 504 is recounted in full, from its role as a works car used extensively for testing fuel injection, to two seasons of racing throughout Europe with Ecurie Ecosse, to four busy years of national competition in the hands of first Mike Salmon and then Peter Sutcliffe. This book provides fascinating insight into every aspect of this D-type's history, supported by a fine collection of period photographs. Any Jaguar enthusiast will enjoy this addition to the Great Cars series. About the Authors: Philip Porter is the author of over 25 automotive books.
