Metal precision model hand-built from more than 1,150 parts. Starting numbers printed with the elaborate tampon printing method. Perfectly crafted wheels with stainless-steel spokes and nipples on alloy rims. A realistic replica of the straight-six engine complete with encircling components, pipes, and cabling.

The C-Type developed for use in motorsport from the XK120 was completely new except for the optimized engine. Jaguar won the overall victory in Le Mans twice with the C-Type. Between 1952 and 1955, racing teams with the C-Type won many (class) victories in national and international races. 53 copies of the C-Type were made in Coventry, including four lightweight chassis.
