1:18 1957 Jaguar D-Type Le Mans
We are pleased to be able to announce another exclusive 1:18 replica that will only be available from Diecast Legends. It is the 1957 Le Mans 24 Hours winning Jaguar D-Type, as entered by the Ecurie Ecosse team, and as driven by Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb. It was the third successive, and final, victory for the D-Type at Le Mans. Indeed, D-Types swept the board at the endurance classic that year, with the other Ecurie Ecosse car coming home in second place, and privateer examples finishing third, fourth and sixth.
This is a truly iconic car that has never been replicated in 1:18 scale before. With a subject as desirable as this, we can easily see demand outstripping supply. Especially as it is a worldwide limited edition of no more than 250 pieces. This 1:18 replica is being produced for us by the same industry-leading resin model maker that delivered our exclusive Mike Hawthorn 1958 Morocco Ferrari, so you know that quality will not be an issue, and neither will accuracy. Get your pre-order locked in now, and there will be no chance of you missing out when it is released.
