Jaguar Is Making Built-To-Order, Period-Correct C-Type Continuation Cars

First introduced in 1951, Jaguar’s C-type is one of the most iconic British race cars in history, with the Malcolm Sayer-designed model winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans the year of its debut. Only 53 units were built of the C-type — or XK120C — making surviving examples extremely valuable, incredibly rare, and highly sought-after. To pay homage to the mid-century racer, Jaguar Classic is now offering bespoke C-type continuation cars on a made-to-order basis.

Created using extensive records and archives as well as 3D CAD modeling, the C-type continuation cars are manufactured and pieced together using period-correct production techniques. The cars are powered by a handmade 3.4L inline-six engine with double overhead cams, Triple Weber 40DCO3 carbs, and four-speed manual transmissions with Plessey pump-equipped gearboxes — an arrangement that’s good for 220hp at 5,800rpm. Riding on 16″ 60-spoke wheels, the exterior of the C-type continuation is cloaked in hand-rolled 16-gauge aluminum that comes in the buyer’s choice of one of a dozen paint options, plus optional door roundels and Jaguar badging. Inside, the Jaguar sports leather race seats (available in eight color options), OEM Lucas mirrors, Brooklands Aeroscreens, Smiths clocks and instrumentation, a 15″ Bluemel steering wheel, an available harness retention system, and an FIA-approved fire extinguishing system.
