The Jaguar XK120 C universally known as The C Type, the C for Competition.

We cannot proceed to lead you to our version of this great classic without a brief reflection of this cars history and legacy it has firmly stamped on Motor Sport History, The C Type is a derivative of the XK120 which was first introduced at the 1948 London Motor Show becoming the most outstanding high performance car of its time to emerge from post war Britain, although designed as a pure production sports road car it gained much acclaim and laurels in many forms of Motor Sport in particular The Alpine and domestic Rallies which culminated in a highly respectful 12th in the 1950 Le Mans piloted by Clark and Haines, however Jaguar founder William Lyons realised to open up the world markets for Jaguar a win at Le Mans was paramount to launch Jaguar into the new era of the post war market the story begins!
