With such an icon marque as the Jaguar C-Type it was inevitable that companies would seek to produce recreations. The highest quality of these recreations was offered by Proteus. The company was established in 1985 by Jim Marland in Lancashire and they are still in existence today. Proteus offer bodywork in either GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) or the more authentic and more sought after aluminium.
The Proteus C-Type offered at Classixxxsamsee is a recreation of the iconic 1951 car. Built around a powder coated Proteus tubular steel space frame with floor and bulkhead panels riveted and bonded together the Aluminium bodywork houses a Le Mans style fuel filler, aluminium seats and fuel tank. The windscreen fitted offers a full wrap around Perspex screen with Mille Miglia cut outs and twin Brooklands “Aero” type screens behind.
This superb Proteus C-Type has an all aluminium body with a Jaguar 4.2 straight six engine, complete with triple SU carburettors and a five speed Getrag gearbox. Built in 1998, this car has covered just 54575 km and has been the subject of many upgrades and much fettling. The result is a car that can be enjoyed as a turnkey example of the highest order. Its quite comfortable to drive even for tall people( I am 1,94) and is mechanically very reliable and in very good condition, It commands a crowd whereever you go. Its quite astonishing the room you have for luggage in the car and in the trunk,
Finished in blank alloy to show off the craftsmanship that was needed to build this beautiful shape in Alloy, with black interior . The car is serviced each year at least once in preparation for our annual Mille Miglia Tour. It has never missed a beat on all our Tours. It has been on 14 Mille Miglia Tours and 2 Nuvolari Tours and has never missed a beat.
This car is in excellent condition and with a 2014 built Proteus C-Type costing in excess of £85,000, this stunning example offers immediate ownership and peace of mind, having been built and maintained with no expense spared. Also is the naked alloy body a great eye-catcher where ever you turn up.
History C Type
The Jaguar C-Type
(also called the Jaguar XK120-C) is a racing sports car built by Jaguar and sold from 1951 to 1953. The "C" stands for "competition".
The car used the running gear of the contemporary XK120 in a lightweight tubular frame and aerodynamic aluminium body. A total of 53 C-Types were built.
The road-going XK120’s 3.4-litre twin-cam, straight-6 engine produces between 160 and 180 bhp (134 kW). The C-Type version was originally tuned to around 205 bhp (153 kW). Later C-Types are more powerful, using triple twin-choke Weber carburettors and high-lift camshafts. They are also lighter, and from 1952 braking performance was improved by disc brakes on all four wheels. The lightweight, multi-tubular, triangulated frame was designed by Bob Knight.[1] Malcolm Sayer designed the aerodynamic body. Made of aluminium in the barchetta style, it is devoid of road-going items such as carpets, weather equipment and exterior door handles.

1953 Jaguar C-Type in Ecurie Ecosse colours displayed at Dulwich Picture Gallery, 29 June 2014
The C-Type was successful in racing, most notably at the Le Mans 24 hours race, which it won twice.
In 1951 the car won at its first attempt. The factory entered three, whose driver pairings were Stirling Moss and Jack Fairman, Leslie Johnson and triple Mille Miglia winner Clemente Biondetti, and the eventual winners, Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead. The Walker-Whitehead car was the only factory entry to finish, the other two retiring with lack of oil pressure. A privately entered XK120, owned by Robert Lawrie, co-driven by Ivan Waller, also completed the race, finishing 11th.
