Lot 222 - 1964 Jaguar C-Type Replica
|Estimate||£38,000 - £42,000|
We are delighted to offer this wonderful recreation of a Jaguar XK120C (C-Type); one of Jaguar's most beautiful and all time great competition Le Mans winning sports cars of the 1950s. Designed purely to win one race - the 1951 Le Mans 24 Hours - the C-Type not only won, but set a new lap record in the process. The 1952 Le Mans race proved unsuccessful for Jaguar with all three cars entered failing to finish, however; in the 1953 race, the C-Type recorded 1st, 2nd, 4th and 9th positions and was the first motor car with a recorded average of 100mph at Le Mans.
This C-Type replica is based on a Jaguar S-type and as such it drives and sounds like a Jaguar should. The blue paintwork is in good order and we are advised she drives with no known faults. The vendor is a classic car enthusiast and he has thoroughly enjoyed owning this C-Type, reluctantly though he has to sell her due to lack of suitable storage space. The 3.8litre engine started immediately and sounded superb when requested; this really is a car with great presence and offers fun in abundance. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this handsome Jaguar C-Type replica will give you the same sensation and exhilaration as the original car but at a fraction of the cost.
