Chassis: XKD 404
Chassis XKD 404 was the third works car entered for Le Mans, where it was driven by Peter Whitehead and Ken Wharton. The race ended early for this pairing after a gearbox failure on the 131st lap. It was later raced to victory in the Reims 12 Hours by Whitehead and Wharton. Only raced a handful of times by the factory, XKD 404 was sold by Jaguar in 1957. In private hands, the car's racing career continued and it was subsequently campaigned in historic events by long time owner Martin Morris. Still in highly original condition, it is today part of the lovely Mallya Collection and displayed in a private museum in California.
