The Le Mans-style fuel filler is hidden in the fin. Yes, in the fin -- we're hyperventilating, too.

With a non-adjustable steering wheel of that size, including doors to ease ingress and egress is kind of a futile gesture.

Jaguar Classic doesn't do things halfway. These period-correct Dunlop wheels hide the real secret to Jaguar's Le Mans success in the 1950s: four-wheel disc brakes.

There is no doubt that the four-speed box in the D-Type will take some muscling around and will likely be unforgiving of errors.
