Exclusive new Jag continuations
Two new Jaguar C-type continuations have been revealed by Jaguar Classic. The special ‘70-Editions’ mark 70 years since the C-type was at the pinnacle of sports car racing and only one of each will be built, costing a cool £1.5million excluding local taxes.
Each car has been tailored ‘in an evocative colour and trim’ with hand-crafted silverenamelled badging from Britain’s oldest manufacturing jeweller, Deakin & Francis, as well as distinctive ‘70-Edition’ stitching and embroidery and painted roundels bearing the number 70. Deakin & Francis has also fabricated a bespoke key housing and dashboard plaque for each car from a 1953 C-type fuel tank. The first car is finished in the combination of Verbier Silver with Cranberry Red leather, inspired by the C-type’s Platinum Anniversary, while the second ‘70-Edition’ is a tribute to the 1953 Le Mans-winning C-type XKC 051, finished in the works colours of British Racing Green with a suede green leather interior. Manufacture is underway and each car will take 3000 hours to complete.
