Following our article last week about JLR’s court case win, more news emerges this week.
After winning a copyright court case against a C-type replica car builder, Jaguar Classic has announced it will itself create a limited number of new C-type Continuations celebrating 70 years of the Le Mans-winning icon.
A strictly limited number of the new C-types will be built by Jaguar Classic experts at the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works facility in Coventry, UK.
JLR say, this continuation programme will allow Jaguar customers to purchase a new factory-built example of the ultimate 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours-winning C-type.
This will be the first time the Malcom Sayer designed C-type has been produced since the original 1950’s run of just 53 cars. Eight new C-type Continuation cars will be built ahead of a racing-inspired celebration event for their owners in 2022.
Prices? Reports suggest they will start at “high six figures” and may well top two million pounds each.
