Probably the most significant car in Jaguar’s history no longer exists, broken up as a redundant old racing car. It won at Le Mans, Jaguars maiden victory, and was the first car to race with disc brakes at Goodwood and the Mille Miglia. Though some features of the 1951 cars have been fitted to original cars and replicas no accurate reconstruction yet exists with all the detail features and the Mille Miglia brakes. The 60th anniversary of the Le Mans victory comes up in 2011 and the Mille Miglia in 2012.
This car is being built to the original 1951 C Type Jaguar specification as a replica of XKC003, the Le Mans winner and Mille Miglia entrant. It will incorporate Jaguar works upgrades to 1952 level, most notably the prototype Dunlop disc brake system. All components will either be correct stock Jaguar XK120 original components or newly manufactured parts made to original drawings and specifications. Car to obtain FIA HTP certification.
