Let’s Take a Drive in a Meticulously Restored Jaguar D-Type

Harvington Motor Co. must have been equally excited and nervous to handle the mechanical restoration of the 1956 Mike Hawthorn D-Type. It always impresses the hell out of me when restoration and race shops routinely tear into a priceless machine (or in this case, valued at about £7 Million). That sort of confidence is what separates top-shelf vintage racing technicians from garage tinkerers like me.
