Jaguar Classic: limited number “C-type Continuations” is nearing reality.

70 years after its 1st Le Mans 24 Hours win, C-type Continuations will officially reak cover at  the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace on Friday 3 September.

The C-type Continuation will be hand-built at Jaguar Classic Works in Coventry, to the specification of the 1953 ‘works’ C-types that dominated that year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, scoring the C-type’s second Le Mans win and continuing a run of motorsport success for the company.

The Jaguar Classic team researched the C-type’s history to bring the modern car to life, using the original specification. Although a brand new car, it is made using authentic 50’s materials

Dan Pink, Director, Jaguar Classic, said“The C-type is one of the most iconic cars in Jaguar’s illustrious racing history, driven by some of the most-admired drivers in history. The C-type Continuation keeps Malcolm Sayers’ iconic and advanced design alive thanks to the first application of 3D CAD drawings by Jaguar Classic, marrying design and motorsport heritage with the very latest engineering tools.”
