DRIVEN followers will have salivated over some of the incredible vehicles on offer from Kidston of Geneva that we’ve featured in the past.

The collector car specialists offer a carefully curated selection of the world’s finest sports and luxury models of the kind that would look right at home in Ralph Lauren’s garage.

Every iconic car passes through Kidston’s hands at some point—sometimes rather quickly, as in the case of an ultrarare $4.7 million 1955 Jaguar D-Type that they recently sold soon after acquiring it.

The ex-Bib Stillwell, Frank Gardner, Jack Davey, “Dickie” Attwood and Angus Spencer-Nairn D-type as it’s officially known was the 7th production D-Type built and one of the most beautiful, successful and coveted cars in existence.

As Kidston notes, “On only a few, rare occasions do automobile design, performance and competition success coalesce into sublime expressions of form following function” as they do with the D-Type.
