JAGUAR D-TYPE REAR VIEW

JAGUAR D-TYPE REAR VIEW

Palm Springs, CA

This 1955 D-type Jaguar took first place in the "European Sports Racing, 1946-1974" category at the first-time Desert Classic. After almost 40 years of photographing cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, airplanes and just about any other vehicle someone could name, we know that a truly timeless design will look good from any and every angle, especially, with cars, its rear 3/4-view. Like a Porsche 911, this Jaguar D-type looks good and shoots good from any and every angle. And while it is about 50 years old, it not only looks contemporary, it appears downright futuristic, even in 2008.
