Chassis: XKD 406
The fifth and final works car built in 1954, chassis XKD 406 was first raced in the Dundrod Tourist Trophy, fitted with a 2.5-litre engine. Driven by Peter Walker and Stirling Moss, it finished 18th. With the larger, 3.4-litre engine fitted, it was shipped to the United States and loaned to Briggs Cunningham. He entered it for Mike Hawthorn and Phil Walters, who scored a victory in the Sebring 12 Hours. Once back in England, it was sold to Duncan Hamilton, who lent it to various drivers. Following its contemporary racing career, it has been extensively used in historic event by its successive owners.
