Built by Jaguar, the XK 120C or C-Type was created to enter, and win the fabled Le Mans 24-hour race. It’s the ultimate prize for any manufacturer, an event that sees a field of the worlds most advanced sports cars race twice around the clock at the famed Circuit de la Sarthe, located in Le Mans, France.
The Famous Jaguar C-Type won the event twice, once in the cars first attempt in 1951 and again in 1953. This evocation of the famous 1953 “C” type is very true to the original shape and specification.
This Jaguar C-Type is a Proteus built C Type replica, Proteus (known as Copycats, prior to 1987) are a well-known replica manufacturer that create true to form representations of famous C and D Type Jaguars (among a number of other vehicles).
This car features all Jaguar running gear. With an accurate aluminium tub and doors, with the main body of this C-Type being of fibreglass construction, though true to the original lines of the car.
Fitted with a Jaguar 3.8 Litre motor, triple 45 Weber Carburettors and featuring a C-Type spec head, this car is sure to provide the same thrills that Sir Stirling Moss felt as he hurtled down the Mulsanne straight on his way to a 2nd place at the 1953 event.

Most people will agree if we say that the Coupé (or FHC) version of the E-Type Series 1 is one of the most beautiful automotive designs ever made. It is unbelievable that the design of this iconic car was conceived in two weeks, and that sir William Lyons was not very sure that it would appeal to the typical Jaguar customer. It's 55 years later now, and the E-Type is a styling icon and exposed in
