|Heritage Jaguar C-type, a tribute to a Le Mans winner|
One of the most famous racing cars in history and a revolution on wheels. But it was also a courageous and instantly successful effort by a proud British car manufacturer to focus attention on itself on the Le Mans 24 Hour world stage.
Jaguar’s plan to convert the already very fast XK120 into an even faster racing car was, in no uncertain terms, a highly successful one. The C-types won their debut race in 1951 and also in 1953. In the latter race, they were the first racing cars to be fitted with disk brakes. The Jaguar brand – certainly in France – is not only linked to luxury, but also to sportiness.
Between 1951 and 1953, Jaguar produced exactly 52 C-types. Ownership of such a famous and rare care was reserved for a select few – then and now.
The only alternative that offers the same raw sensation as a genuine C-type is a true-to-life replica. And this car is exactly that. You could drive away in it – it already has Dutch registrations plates!
Heritage Jaguar C-type – in detail.
This specific C-type was built in 1995 by specialist British company, Heritage. Therefore it a factory built car and not a kit car !
Since the first owner purchased his C-type in 1995, he travelled only 14,000 km in this stunning sports car.
Noble House has serviced the car from the start. Various improvements to the C-type have also been carried out over the course of time, such as the fitting of a Getrag five-speed gearbox.
The C-type was delivered in classic Aston Martin Sage Green metallic. The interior also features this shade tastefully combined with the beige leather upholstery on its bucket seats. Another superb feature is the car’s green, four-point driver and passenger harness seatbelts. This C-type can be described as a very reliable car that lends itself well to participation in international rallies. At nostalgic motoring events, it will definitely be one of the most spectacular and striking cars on show.
The current owner of the car is parting with the C-type because he wants to reduce the size of his classic car collection. This is the ultimate opportunity for enthusiasts to purchase a reliable and fully road-going C-type replica. And it includes a sought-after Dutch registration number.
