JAGUAR C-TYPE

2-seater sports.

Basically an XK120 with spaceframe for a chassis and a specially tuned engine developing 204bhp. It gave Jaguar wins at Le Mans in 1951 and '53, the latter occasion using Dunlop disc brakes to give it a decisive advantage over other competitors. A classic shape, and its racing pedigree and rarity make it pricey today. The glorious D-type (1954-56) was also produced in fair numbers - 71 in total of which five were destroyed in the 1957 factory fire and four were dismantled for spares.
