1953 Jaguar C-Type Recreation s/n 726164 DN, Engine no. D8309-8 Metallic Blue with Dove Gray Leather A great sports car earns its legacy three ways. Some might be superlative in design, others proven on the racetrack, or perhaps simply by engineering prowess. But in the case of the C-Type Jaguar, it is masterfully inclusive of all three. The legendary Malcolm Sayer designed the C-Type body with beauty and aerodynamic efficiency in mind. Coupled with the twin cam XK series engine and disc brakes, C-Types dominated races, winning at Le Mans in 1951 and again in 1953. And with just 52 examples built at the factory, it should come as no surprise that some of the finest C-Types are selling for eight figures at premium auctions. For the motoring enthusiast who seeks the experience of such a great car, a faithful re-creation, uniting authenticity with upgraded engineering, becomes an inviting proposition for miles of enjoyment. This Jaguar C-Type re-creation is one of just four cars built by renowned engineer Bryan Wingfield in 1987. Built specifically for each customer, the original four owners were Paul Hewes, Henry Taylor, Merrick Taylor and Sir Anthony Bamford. These four cars were ex

£59950 This Proteus Jaguar C type replica was based on a Jaguar MK 11, first registered as 449 EOC in March 1961, which in 1989 was recreated by Proteus as 3.8 'C' Type replica, further information can be found in the June 1995 Coys catalogue when the car was first put up for sale. Following this the car was subsequently owned by the Classic Car Club of London, one UK and two European owners. A C Type replica previously registered in Denmark and Sweden, with original UK V5C dating from 1961 In Proteus's own description, the Proteus C-Type is a precisely engineered modern interpretation of the 1950s racing thoroughbred, the Jaguar XK120-C or C-Type. One of the world’s all-time great competition sports cars, the C-Type was designed to win the Le Mans 24 hour race. In its first year, it won outright, and with the later D-Type, continued to dominate the international sports car racing scene throughout the 1950s in the hands of drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss, Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt. Due to being an early C type replica, unlike modern replicas it has nicely mellowed appearance, which would not look out of place in company of older Jaguars Early Proteus, with mellowed original p

JAGUAR C-TYPE BY DAVID BROWN Chassis Number: 716882 Engine Number: A3994-7 Head number: LB 8353-8 Registration Number: JUN 563 When the XK120 saw the daylight in 1948, only aluminium was available to construct these gracious automobiles during the after days of WWII. It was never suspected that those fine sports cars were such a success which led to ordering tooling for the steel sheets to cope with the ever growing orders. 240 ‘alloy’ bodied 120’s were made and almost all of them found their way to some sort of racing circuit due it’s very light bodywork and nimble character. Jaguar reacted accordingly and decided to develop a specially made track-built version of these lightweight 120’s: The C-type. These C-types set the course for the 7 overall wins at Le Mans for Jaguar when in 1951 they won Le Mans for the first time and did it again in 1953 with their updated version. D-types continued this winning-streak and the rest is well-known history. The car we present you is a recreation of one of Jaguars most famous cars. It has been made by World renowned C-type expert David Brown in New Zealand to the highest detail you can think off. The car is constructed to the original drawings provided by friend, and well-known classic car dealer, Ian Cummings in Sydney, these being based on an original C-type located in his shop. David Brown constructed this C-type to very high standards and using as much original parts as possible. The car is constructed on a tubular frame where a full aluminium coach built bodywork was expertly crafted. A 1953 Jaguar Mark VII donated its basic parts and 3.4 litre engine block for this car. (although completely rebuilt to C Type spec) With a 83mm bore and 106mm stroke, the specifications are exactly the same to the original C-type. A Jaguar MKII provided the head fitted on this bespoke machine which gives you the correct bigger valve diameters to give that extra bit of ‘oomph’ to the already powerful lump. The original C-type gave you 203BHP which was easily achieved by this setup. Double overhead cams, original double twin “Sand Cast” H8 cast SU carburettors, four-wheel original type drum brakes and detailed independent front suspension proving it very very close to the original example in their workshop. The gearbox is the famous Jaguar four-speed Moss box as fitted to all C-types, all the instruments are correct as are the Brooklands type windscreens and even the cold air intake box for the carburettors. Every stitch, every rivet and every bolt were fitted with the C-type in mind. Even the wiring looms are made out of braded cotton wire and with wonderful detail. What more can we say, the attention to detail is absolutely stunning. It is believed that the few existing “David Brown C-types” are so good that distinguishing them from the originals is very tricky even for Jaguar specialists. These are renowned for being the best of the best. Therefore it is more than logical that these “Post production” C-types as standard FIA recreations, are FIA applicable and are being raced among their full blood brothers in major events around the World. This car comes with 1953 V5C British registration papers, original “JUN 563” number plate and is therefore eligible to race in the FIA vintage series. The current owner bought the car from ‘The old Racing Car Company’ in the UK who acquired it directly from David Brown as his UK demo vehicle. If you like C-types and don’t want to spend multi millions (literally) on your dream car, this example will be perfect for you. Made to the highest standards and driving like a thoroughbred sports car, although is handles easily in normal traffic as well, this car is the pinnacle of early 50’s motorsport. It is stunning in every aspect. http://www.stuff.co.nz/southland-times/business/2948893/Dave-Brown-model-just-like-the-original http://www.nzherald.co.nz/motoring/news/article.cfm?c_id=9&objectid=10772798 http://www.historic-competitionservices.eu/nl/jaguar-c-type-by-david-brown

The XK120C’s astonishing 1951 debut and 1953 victories at Le Mans 24-Hour Race established Jaguar’s first purpose-built racing sports car as one of the all-time greats paving the way for the D-Type. These multiple Le Mans wins in the 1950s, as well as numerous victories in the other great classic endurance events, have ensured a continuing healthy demand for replicas of Jaguar’s rare and exotic works sports-racers. This car is offered for sale having been commissioned to respected C & D type builder Jim Marland, who constructed this exacting replica some 10 years ago for the previous owner. Its multi-tubular spaceframe chassis is clothed in aluminium alloy coachwork recreating the style of the original factory cars.
