Jaguar’s genius designer Malcolm Sayer was an aerodynamicist who was responsible for creating the awesome C-Type, D-Type, E-Type, XJ13 and XJ-S.
His works are amongst some of the greatest automotive designs of all time, and I truly look at the original and unique XJ13 more as a sculpture than a racing sports car. Fortunately it didn’t end up with wings in the late ’60s, and Malcolm hated vents and other bits and pieces which he found ruined the airflow.
Now a sculptor in silver thinks the same thing, and has created this stunning pure silver Long Nose D-Type as purely something with is to be displayed.
I don’t know a lot about it yet, this image having been sent through by E-Type owner Roy Walenn, but I do know you can have it for US$55,000.
The ultimate trophy in the your ‘Mans Cave’? Perhaps … not.
