1953 Jaguar C-Type Roadster Reproduction
This 1953 Jaguar C-Type Roadster is a stunning recreation and absolutely gorgeous in Midnight Blue Metallic over Red leather interior. The heart of this auto is the Jaguar 4.2L/280hp inline 6-cylinder, in this case running on Triple Weber Sidedraft Carburettors. Spent gasses exit through headers to sidepipes exhaust. It has excellent performance. Beneath the Handcrafted Composite Panels lies a handmade spaceframe chassis and the running gear from an XJ6. There's fully independent suspension all round, and a Toyota five-speed gearbox. The gearchange is fantastic and straight-line performance eye-opening. The exhaust noise -- such an important part of an authentic replica -- is savage, the crisp note barely silenced on this example. It handles tidily as well, with plenty of grip, plus the 4-wheel disc brakes inspire confidence.Only 53 original Jaguar C-type were built.
