The first production Jaguar C-Type continuation finished the shakedown test.
Jaguar Classic has finished manufacturing the first C-Type Continuation. The strictly limited production run is now underway at the Jaguar Classic facility in Coventry, with the first vehicle having completed make-ready tests ready for delivery to an ecstatic customer. Each C-Type Continuation undergoes a minimum of 250 miles of physical testing by Jaguar Classic engineers, following a manufacturing process that requires 3,000 hours of intensive and highly skilled labor. The customer's first Continuation is finished in Pastel Green with Suede Green leather seats and is inspired by the original Jaguar that won the 224-mile, 50-lap sports car race at the Reims Grand Prix on June 29. from 1952.
This vehicle was the first one equipped with disc brakes to win an international competition. It was after driver Stirling Moss convinced Jaguar to put into practice the pioneering technology it had in development. Victory at Reims was a testament to the car's dominance at the following year's 24 Hours of Le Mans and Jaguar's continued supremacy in 1950 sports car racing.
Hand-built at the Jaguar Classic Works in Coventry, all Continuation models will be built to the specifications of the 1953 factory. The first version has already undergone final testing and the Jaguar Classic team is impatient to hand it over to an excited customer. The Jaguar Classic team has helped bring Jaguar's heritage to life using extensive research, modern technology, and engineering expertise.
Thanks to an advanced CAD modeling system, all models are manufactured using the same methods and techniques to ensure that the Continuations series maintains the cues of the original vehicle.
Customers can choose from 12 exterior colors, including this car's Pastel Green, British Racing Green, and Pastel Blue with a contrasting roundel, as well as the ability to choose their own interior specifications from a range of eight. leather tones. Continuation models are FIA homologated and can participate in all historic FIA events, including the Jaguar Classic Challenge, which is held at various circuits such as Le Mans and Silverstone. The limited series of C-type's Continuation is now available.
