The Jaguar D-Type 1957 Le Mans winner – in Ecurie Ecosse livery, driven by Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb

Available in a Limited Edition of 99 incredibly detailed 1:8 scale hand-made models, the 1957 Le Mans Winning D-Type Jaguar #3, finished in the distinctive Ecurie Ecosse Flag Blue Metallic paint.

During the 1957 race, the 3.8 litre D-Types were arrayed against some fearsome opposition including a 3.7-litre Aston Martin six, V-12 Ferraris as big as 4.1, and a pair of 4.5-litre V-8 Maseratis. One by one, the bigger cars ran themselves into the ground, and as early as the end of the third hour, an Ecurie Ecosse D-Type was in the lead. Driven by Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb, it led the race for the next 21 hours, setting a new distance record of 2,732.8 miles (4,398.0 km).

Amalgam have modelled this car exactly as it appeared in the race, with every detail of its exterior, interior and engine bay replicated in precise detail at 1:8 scale. Also available with race weathering to order.
