Graham Robson ‘tackles the D type as a car; why and how it happened; what it signified in the period 1954 to 1957; how it related to other Jaguar types; and how it fits in with the technical evolution of the Jaguar’. So wrote Michael Sedgwick when asked to review the work. Michael went on ‘He has found something new to say. It is a useful reference work.’

There can be no better accolade than that from a recognized authority who has been writing himself about Jaguar for close on 20 years. Obviously with so much already published on the subject it was difficult to find anything significantly new, however Robson returned to primary sources, checked and re-checked figures, read and re-read contemporary reports and looked once more deeper in the available photographic archives. We have a work, therefore, which does indeed tell us more about Britain’s most famous postwar sports car.

Hardback and dust cover in very good condition throughout.
