Gallery: Ex-Moss 1954 Jaguar D-type


A storied 1954 Jaguar D-type Works (OKV 2) is expected to fetch £9-£11 million at auction in Sotheby’s Arizona sale on January 18-19 

The third of six works Jaguar D-types to be built at Jaguar’s Coventry factory in 1954, this particular car was piloted by Sir Stirling Moss and Peter Walker. It set a speed record of 172.97mph on the Mulsanne straight, then retired with a brake problem after midnight.

OKV 2 continued to be raced at Goodwood, Oulton Park, Aintree, Silverstone and more in the mid-1950s, with drivers such as Bob Berry, Peter Blond, Ron Flockhart, Jack Fairman, Ivor Bueb, and Reg Harris taking the helm of one of the most active D-types of the decade.
