1955 Jaguar D-Type Racing At Le Mans (Amazing & Rough Sound)
This is the legendary Jaguar D-Type, an ancestor of the dominant
LM-Prototypes Jaguar built in the late 1940s, early 1950s. The cars that
preceeded this dominant machine were the XK-models and the C-Type. All of
them were pretty much the kings of their era.
Not only did they drive well, they were extremely beautiful as you can see
in this video! What you can as well is how nice it is to look at a D-Type
being pushed on track. We, at HistoricRacingHD, think that this might be
one of the most enjoyable videos in terms of really watching it instead of
just enjoying the sound that comes with it.

them coming from Hunaudières and already got excited. The first few cars
flew around the corner and of course a few D-Types were in the top ten, one
of them pretty much just drifted through the entire corner. Which is what
we are talking about when we say the D-Type is amazing on every single
As always, enjoy the video!
Thanks for watching!
