Cars are like wine, the more older they get, the more expensive they are, but that doesn’t mean this rule applies to every car.

But what do you know, it does apply for this amazing 1955 Jaguar D-Type, which is being auctioned on RM Auctions, and I have to say it looks more than spectacular.

Well, you might want to know that the Jaguar D-Type was manufactured in only 54 units, so this piece of history is kind of rare.

The sports car was produced by Jaguar between 1954 and 1957, and won the Le Mans 24-hour race three times (1955, 1956 and 1957).

So maybe now you understand the price tag these amazing cars come with. This is not only a car, it’s a piece of history.
