Configure your very own Jaguar C-Type

Jaguar Classic are celebrating 70 years of the legendary C-Type by building eight continuation cars based around the 1953 Le Mans winning car.

Jaguar Classic will be creating a limited number of new hand-built examples of the ultimate 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours-winning C-Type for the first time with fully- authentic new disc-brakes. Eight new C-Type Continuation cars will be built ahead of a racing-inspired celebration event for their owners in 2022. Building from their experience with the Lightweight E-Type, XKSS and D-Type continuations, Jaguar Classic engineers have consulted Jaguar’s archives and cross-referenced scan data taken from an original C-Type in conjunction with the latest computer aided design technology to create the most authentic car possible. 

Customers also have the opportunity to virtually create their dream C-Type with a new online configurator. Head over to the Jaguar Classic visualiser to pick from 12 authentic exterior colours and eight interior colours. You can also apply racing roundels and steering wheel and bonnet badging. With recent news that Jaguar has secured copyright protection for the C-Type in the same way art and music is protected, this is perhaps your last chance to purchase a ‘brand new’ C-Type.
