Jaguar D Type 1:18 Le Mans 1957, #17, 3rd place
This is a brand new ‘kirbside’ model of the Jaguar D Type ‘Short Nose’ entered in the 1957 Le Mans 24 hour race by the French privateer team – Equipe Los Amigos, finishing am impressive 3rd in a 1,2,3,4 finish for the all conquering D Type. Finished in a really nice blue, driven by team owner Jean ‘Mary’ Brussin and Jean Lucas.
There are very few models of this Le Mans winning D Type. Exoto’s highly detailed model now sells for well over £1,000. Whilst this model doesn’t have the same chassis and engine detail as the Exoto model, for a budget model it looks fabulous and displays very well. If you want this car to complete a collection or just to display by itself this is a good inexpensive option.
