Description

This exacting tool room copy of the infamous Jaguar C type mirrors the early cars which used drum brakes and the road going XK120 3.4 litre engine with twin carburetors.
Bodied by Shapecraft of Northampton onto its Chassis constructed by Andy Thomas and the engine built by Dave Butcher (a Ron Beaty trained apprentice), the attention to detail of KCA 717 is remarkable, its aluminium body has been crafted from the original drawings of the actual factory C-Types. Even the rivets and welds remain visible.

The car competed in 2019 in the Malta Classic and is ready to be used both on the road and racetrack.
