Auction Block: 1954 Jaguar D-Type Works

Dec 6, 2017

Category: Rides

More of a legend than a collector’s automobile, the Jaguar D-Type OKV 2 was the second iteration from the Coventry factory back in 1954. Immediately handled by Sterling Moss, this ride was able to set a new record speed for him and his co-driver Peter Walker at 172.97 mph during Le Mans in 1954.

Shortly thereafter, the same car was considered the lead car for the Jaguar team – handled by some of the greatest drivers of the time. It was the favored car to win the 24 hours of Le Mans that same year but unfortunately didn’t finish the race due to a fuel issue. Now, that very same car is up for grabs at auction next month, where’s it’s expected to fetch upwards of $15 million. Legendary in every sense of the word, D-Type OVK-2 is one storied midcentury ride.
