Description

An early Jaguar D-Type replica built by the legendary Rod Tempero of Motor Body Builder LTD, and Classic Car Restoration. Rod Tempero has built a strong reputation for himself with his world-class metal fabrication, chassis build-ups, and restorations. Rod started his career in 1979 working with his father creating the best replicas of some of the most sought-after and beautiful sports cars ever created, including the Jaguar D-Type, Jaguar C-Type, and Aston Martin DBR2.
