Wallpaper Description:
The 1956 Jaguar D-Type is a sports racing car that was produced by Jaguar Cars Ltd. between 1954 and 1957. Designed by Chief Engineer and Technical Director William Haynes specifically to win the Le Mans 24-hour race, it shared the straight-6 XK engine and many mechanical components with its C-Type predecessor.

Although Jaguar withdrew from motorsport at the end of the 1956 season, 1957 proved to be the D-Type's most successful year. 3.8-litre engine Jaguar D-Types took five of the top six places at Le Mans, and Ecurie Ecosse, with considerable support from Jaguar, finished first and second, the best result in the D-Type's racing history.

By the 1960s these cars were seen as merely obsolete race cars, and commonly changed hands between $3,000 and $5,000. In 1999 a record was set at £1,706,000.
The first factory production D-Type (XKD-509) was sold at Bonhams auction for £2,201,500 in July 2008.

A 1955 model was sold at a RM Sotheby's auction in Monterey in 2016 for $21,780,000 (£16,641,143). This is the most expensive Jaguar ever to sell at auction.
