I'm pretty much certain it is a kit car. Although I'd love to be proven wrong.
I had a hard time trying to catch up with my 250cc commuter, to have a good view. An elderly gentleman was behind the wheel.

By the way, when this picture was taken i.e., last Sunday, this car had broken down on the NH2.

Got some details.
Its a Jaguar D-Type kit car.
It shares its garage with the AC Cobra kit car and the souped up matt black Porsche 911.

Neat Kit car of the D Type..the only thing spoiling it is the rear wing as it never came on the original. I guess its been put to allow the Rear to stay planted at high speeds considering a powerful engine must have been fitted.

What a relative of the owner said on Kolkata Car Fanatics about the Jaguar D Type kitcar.

Quote:
Cars runs a 7.5l big block V8 supercharged
Last compression test said it was doing around 900hp.
Engine is a one off,base block was a cobra 6.5l,put through a "laeth" machine and the boring was made bigger,the pistons,cams,cam covers and all other parts were imported separately.Cars running only 8 pounds of boost..14 pounds would push it to 1100hp.
Since its an old car the wing does look out of place but once it gets up to speed helps on braking and down force provided to a car which is otherwise non power assisted,since it has so much power a torque its very tail happy.

She sounds wicked at high revs..and a deep throttle at low rpms. The other night she was out with the Nero Nemisses Aventador with the quicksilver exhaust and the symphony they created was music to the ears. The M6 Cabriolet is more Kolkatta, its only the bigger boys that shuffle when their service is due or need a check up..The Superleggara is in Kolkatta now. You would not want to miss her, take my word for it.
