Marking 70 years of the C-type, Jaguar announces that the historic race car is joining the continuation collection with eight limited editions from Jaguar Classic. Extending the original group of 53 cars built by Jaguar, each model will be handbuilt to the same spec as the original 1953 model, complete with a 220 hp 3.4L inline-six engine with a triple Weber 40DCO3 carburetor and disc brakes, and an optional FIA-approved Harness Retention System. Though the cars aren't road-legal, every C-type continuation will be eligible for historic racing events and closed-road use.
