The Jaguar XK120 was one of the fastest production cars of its day and enjoyed much success both on and off the track. Realising that the model had obvious competition potential, Jaguar decided to come up with a racing derivative that was a much more specialised machine. Conceived behind closed doors the XK120-Competition – otherwise known as the ‘C-Type’ - was considerably faster, lighter and nimbler than its road going sibling. The new car’s sophisticated multi-tubular chassis frame and aerodynamic bodywork allowed it to conquer contemporary Ferrari, Mercedes Benz and yes, even Aston Martin!
The C-Type debuted at Le Mans in 1951 and famously won the race, repeating the result in 1953 where it became the first car ever to average over 100 mph at the French endurance classic. Total C-Type production amounted to just 53 examples but even after Jaguar turned its attention to the D-Type, many privateers continued to campaign the older design with considerable success!
This Jaguar C-Type was completed in 2020 by Suffolk Sportscars Ltd and was constructed for the current owner to the correct ‘Jaguar Works specification’ along with suspension, brakes, fuel system, steering and with a rare full aluminium body. It also comes with a period type 4.2 litre Jaguar engine mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive, servo assisted disc brakes all round, Smith instruments, polished aluminium interior and leather sports seats. This faithful representation of Jaguar’s iconic 1950’s racer is in perfect condition and has covered just 600 miles since construction.
