1965 Jaguar OtherThis car was constructed byTemperoand features an all aluminum body replicating an early "short nose" D-Type. It is based on and is registered as a 1965 Jaguar. The engine is a 4.2 literXKpowerplant, itted with triple Weber45mmcarburetors. Under the skin, he car has Jaguar independent rear suspension, hich appears to have been sourced from an E-Type. The car makes a strong cosmetic impression, ith an authentic appearance and high quality workmanship throughout. The body is straight and displays excellent fit, nd thepaintworkwas performed to high standards, ith minor wear in the form of light scratches, few surface cracks, nd some chips where the hood meets the center section of the tub. The Dunlop alloy wheels look authentic and are in fine shape. One of the leather hood straps has been replaced and looks newer than the other. The lights and glazing are in very good shape, ther than an area of clouding to the Perspex windscreen. A hard removable cover is over the passenger area so that the car can fit two occupants.
The interior has a more authentic appearance than most D-Type replicas thanks to its correct appearing three-spoke steering wheel and Smithsgaugeswhich were not simply pulled from an E-Type. The steering wheel has a few cracks in the wood rim. The leather is excellent throughout. The interior is otherwise spare and tidy, n keeping with the competition purpose of the original D-Type. A telescoping steering column is fitted, lthough there is some free play in the shaft which should be corrected with an additional bracket.
The engine compartment shows a high level of workmanship and the engine is extremely impressive thanks to its tripleWebersand large alloy tank tanks. The engine compartment is attractive and very clean, hough not detailed to show standards. Instead, ts presentation is consistent with that of a very nice driver, ike the rest of the car. The charging system is via alternator.
The car is very special to drive enjoy!!!! The motor is extremely strong and thanks to the large carburetors especially, he car absolutely flies at wide open throttle. The noise is fantastic, ikely the closest thing there is in the automotive world to the sound of the Rolls-Royce Merlin used in the Spitfire and the P-51 Mustang. At less aggressive throttle applications, he car remains tractable and relatively smooth, lthough it pops and crackles impatiently through the exhaust and carburetors when trundling around town, articularly when cold. The clutch is heavy but easy to modulate, nd the car shifts smoothly and without protest into all gears when shifting both up and down. The steering is tight and communicative, aking the car easy to place, hile the suspension is surprisingly comfortable while providing excellent body control. The brakes work evenly and effectively, f not completely silently. The overall driving experience is very visceral. The car is loud, ast, nd purposeful, aking the driver feel like a hero even when moving from traffic light to traffic light in town!!!!!
