On the face of it, an interesting era in racing and an author who would pen many worthy tomes. Alas, this isn’t one of them.

Every D-type is special—few were made and the one here is one of only six surviving long-noses. It was raced hard and successfully and 60-odd years later it’s not only still around but in largely original condition! A story worth reading, and in a rather spectacular book.
