The second D-type to be built by the Jaguar Competitions Dept. OKV 1 was the first of the famous trio of D-types that debuted at Le Mans in 1954.
This was another conservation restoration of a very historic Jaguar, going through the body, mechanics and interior, including the original seats. Every aspect of this car was kept as Jaguar designed and built the car to race at Le Mans.
The OKV 1 was driven into second place by Hamilton and Rolt, missing victory by 135 seconds after 24 hours racing in foul conditions.
The D-type then finished second at the Reims 12-Hours and retired in the classic Tourist Trophy, before being sold to Duncan Hamilton who raced it extensively and successfully.
