The Proteus C-Type is a modern classic. A car that’s as breathtakingly exhilarating to drive as it’s practical and reliable to own. This is a contemporary interpretation of the classic 1950s Le Mans winning Jaguar. This car was hand built to customer specifications. Combining the original, classic aerodynamic shape and design, with the latest clever motor-racing technology, materials and processes, the result is a uniquely spirited drive that will leave you grinning from ear to ear as you accelerate from 0-62 mph in around 5.4 seconds.
With the remarkable success of the C-Type at Le Mans, Jaguar immediately secured its place in motoring history. This legendary endurance race, fought over 24 grueling hours, proved the perfect stage to showcase the car's superior design, performance and flat-out speed. Today the original Jaguar C-Types are amongst the most desirable and sought after classic cars, with the best examples fetching prices in the millions of pounds.
The Proteus C-Type is a precisely engineered modern interpretation of the 1950s racing thoroughbred, the Jaguar XK120-C or C-Type. One of the world’s all-time great competition sports cars, the C-Type was designed to win the Le Mans 24 hour race. In its first year, it won outright with Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead at the wheel. The C-Type then continued to dominate the international sports car racing scene throughout the 1950s in the hands of drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss, Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt.
