Lots of outfits made D-type replicas.  I worked for a bloke who owned Lynx Engineering.  They made pretty good ones.

Agreed

New Jaguar D type and XKSS at Jaguar Heritage Trust workshop in Banbury. Visited the workshop this year with a private tour of the workshop and new XKSS production plus Jaguars private Heritage collection. Don’t know how much The new D Types  and XKSS are but restored E Types started at 275k. Fabulous experience talking to mechanics and seeing the cars being assembled.

In the early nineties when I was restoring an XK140FHC, we were on holiday en route to Whales and took a small detour and drove past the Jaguar plant on a Saturday morning, no internet then, so we took the gamble. The museum was closed, but the security man at the gate made a phone call and we were allowed to drive in the plant to the building where the museum was. We were then allowed in the museum and admired the XK120 , think it was the famous NUB120, an XKSS, several other cars and there was a cabinet with prizes (large cups), one was from Sir Stirling Moss, including a picture of him holding the cup after the race.

There was no-one else in the museum, no staff,  just us. A very special occasion for me.

I still regret I sold my XK.
