Jaguar launched the Heritage ’57 Collection yesterday in Paris, a range of branded goods celebrating 60 years of the iconic Jaguar D-Type.

Jaguar’s Design team have created the range to commemorate Jaguar’s most successful period at Le Mans, using the winning No. 3 ‘Ecurie Ecosse’ team car from 1957 as inspiration.

Ian Callum, Director of Design at Jaguar, said: “Occasionally it’s great fun to celebrate the past, especially something as momentous as a winning Ecurie Ecosse D-Type. The collection is distinguished by the blue flag and draws on signature cues from the winning No.3 car.”

Key pieces from the collection are detailed below, for further information please visit
