One of my dads friends had a replica of the C-type. It wasnt a cheap replica either, it was an identical 50,000 replica. He sold it for a brand new TVR Cerbera 4.5 RR. It was a great car the C type.

Jaguar C-Type

Jaguar C-Type

(also called the Jaguar XK120-C) is a racing car built by Jaguar and sold from 1951 to 1953. Its aerodynamic body was designed by Malcolm Sayer, its lightweight, multi-tubular, triangulated frame designed by Bob Knight. A total of 52 have been built.

Mechanically, it used the running gear of the contemporary XK120 sports car (the C in the official XK120-C name stands for 'competition'). The twin-cam, straight-6 engine was tuned to around 205 bhp (153 kW) rather than 160 to 180 bhp (134 kW) of the road car. The custom, tubular chassis and aluminium body-panels, along with the elimination of all creature-comforts, helped the car to shed nearly 1000 lb (454 kg) compared to a comparable Jaguar road-car. The later C-Types were more powerful, using triple twin-choke Weber carburettors and high-lift camshaft. They were also lighter and better braked, by means of all-round disc brakes.

The Jaguar C-Type won the Le Mans 24 hours race at its first attempt in 1951, driven by Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead. Stirling Moss also drove one of the cars, but retired after running very strongly. In 1952 Jaguar, worried by reports of the speed of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, modified the aerodynamics to increase the top speed. However, this necessitated a rearrangement of the car's cooling system, and subsequently all three entries retired due to overheating. In 1953 the car won again, in a lightened, more powerful configuration, driven by Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt. This victory marked the first time the race had been won at an average of over 100 mph {160 km/h} (105.85 mph {170.34 km/h}, to be precise). 1954, the C-Type's final year at Le Mans, saw a fourth place by the Ecurie Francorchamps entry driven by Roger Laurent and Jacques Swaters.

When new, the car sold for approximately $6,000 - approximately twice the price of an XK120. In an article in the June 11, 2003 issue of Autocar magazine ("Slick Cat Jaguar", p.70) the value of a "genuine, healthy" C-Type is estimated as 400,000, and the value of the 1953 Le Mans winner is circa 2 million while replicas are available from a variety of sources from 40,000.

I may get to photograph one of these in a couple days, it's being restored by a local collector at a Jaguar specialty shop in Muncie, IN. It's a 1952 C-Type raced by Phil Hill. He won the first event he entered in it! I am pretty excited.

Yeah I was just reading up on that. Didn't realize it was owned in Central Indiana. Not usually where I think of for classic cars worth millions!! This will probably be one of the most expensive cars I've ever photographed and possibly the most expensive outside of a museum!!
