Jaguar D Type in Detail

More than any other car, I always find that the Jaguar D-type shows the legacy of World War II aviation technology as it applied to postwar sports cars.  It's almost like a fighter plane on wheels, and the men who raced them in the dark and rain to victory at Le Mans were no less brave!

I love this photoset, but I don't know where it came from.  If anyone knows the photographer, I'd love to give credits here.
