Regarding This Vehicle

1953 Jaguar C-Type #18 Le Mans Sports Racer Replica

Gorgeous all-aluminum bodied Jaguar C-Type #18 Le Mans Sports Racer replica!  Powered by strong 4.2L engine and fitted with disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and Smiths instrumentation!  Superbly built with show quality paint!! 

When the head of Jaguar, Bill Lyons, set out to put Jaguar on the podium at Le Mans in 1950, his efforts created the C-Type.  Based originally on the XK120 platform and engine, the XK120“C” stood for Competition.  Unveiled in 1951, it immediately took a first place finish, and again in 1953 before the D-Type took over as the new racing legend.  With the C-Types short-lived success on the track, its place in racing history is forever assured.  Only 53 units were said to have been produced, of which were all sold to the public for normal street use and to driven to the track on race day.  They proved to be very tractable road cars!

This beautiful alloy-bodied 1953 Jaguar C-Type replica was produced by the skilled craftsmen of JVA Automoviles Especiales based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Using the specifications of an authentic C-Type racer, expert aluminum artisans produced a 100% dimensionally correct aluminum body matching the original.  That splendid body was turned into this left-hand-drive example finished in British Racing Green with Black leather racing seats, and powered by a robust 4.2L DOHC Inline 6 cylinder engine with 4-speed manual transmission.  These time-tested power plants proved to be very efficient since their introduction!  Twin SU HIF7 carburetors feed this tuned engine to produce an estimated 220bhp, along with custom made side-exit pipes to emit a wonderful sports-racer exhaust note!  The forward tubular chassis was borrowed from a 1965 Jaguar utilizing the design of the later era E-types with a twin wishbone independent suspension, servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes, adjustable coil-over shocks, and rack and pinion steering.  At the rear, you will find a period correct live axle with adjustable coil shocks & triangulated panhard bar suspension, along with Girling drum brakes.

Other unique features of this Jaguar include Moto Lita steering wheel, true Brooklands windscreen, 15” 72-spoke painted wire spoke wheels with matching spare located in lockable storage compartment, quick release racing fuel cap, turn signals, horn, Smiths instrumentation, leather hood straps along with secondary side lock handles, alternator charging system, and electric cooling fan.  This car still gets our attention when we just walk by it, so we can only imagine the audience it will get while out on the streets!  The remarkable craftsmanship of its unmatched aluminum construction, the attention to detail in the smooth cockpit surround, and the vinyl graphics to highlight a true racing heritage of the #18 Le Mans winning example driven by Tony Rolt & Duncan Hamilton in 1953 only add to its unique, one-of-a-kind character! If you are looking to add something very special to your own garage collection, this Jaguar C-Type needs to be on your list.  It makes for a terrific conversation piece as well as a splendid weekend driver.  Please call with any questions.  It is titled as a 1965 Jaguar.  We look forward to your business!
