Few cars ignite enthusiasm more than Jaguar’s sports racing cars of the 1950’s & 1960’s. Even fewer cars have been so significant in the evolution of the racing car. To many car enthusiasts, those legendary cars are possibly the ultimate sports racing cars, and to Jaguar enthusiasts they certainly are.
Their style is still entrancing, their international successes unquestioned, their performance sensational, and their charisma intense – they are a thrilling motor car in every sense. Dunford Classic & Sports Cars keep the magic of the marque alive and kicking.
Simon Dunford formed DUNFORD CLASSIC & SPORTS CARS in 1990. After the sale of the first Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe, built by this company in their spare time, they quickly became a much more specialised company based entirely on their commitment to the finest quality cars.
Dunford has been making and has been associated with restoring original D’type Jaguars for the past 24 years. We have seen most of the original cars and supplied parts for the rest.
Our Low Drag Coupe replica is second to none. It’s availble as a hand crafted recreation that is historic racing certified with FIVA and FIA. eligible to race against original factory cars, our LDC is a masterpiece.
With all this knowledge gained we decided to build a Lightweight replica in 1990, based on E’type running gear it is the closest to the original available on the market today. All the body is made to the original car so it would take an expert to spot the difference. These are available in component form or to a complete driving car, colour and trim of your choice, long nose or short nose.
If you are looking for the ultimate D-Type we can make an identical copy of the original car right down to the 6 Pot Dunlop brake callipers and the 45 Dco3 sand-cast Webers. This car is FIA eligible and able to race against Jaguars original 1950’s D’types. All parts can be supplied separately of both cars, please take a look through the web site.
