Le Mans Experience - XK120 and C-type

Following the participation of the XK120 at Le Mans in 1950, Jaguar combined the drivetrain with a new aerodynamic shape to create the XK120C (otherwise known as the C-type), the first Jaguar designed solely with racing in mind. C-type won the legendary race the following year and then again in 1953 when its innovative disc braking system saw C-types dominate the leaderboard with first, second and fourth places. The winning car achieved an average of 105mph, the first time the race had been completed at triple figure speeds!

Launched in 1954, the XK140 further developed the XK120 production car, adding more space and rear seats, whilst retaining the superb 3.4 litre straight six engine, developing 250PS with a top speed of 129 mph. In 1956 XK140 was privately entered into the Le Mans 24-hr race, driven by Peter Bolton and Robert Walshaw. It was wrongly disqualified by the ACO and will therefore be returning to the historic circuit in 2016, celebrating its sixtieth anniversary by competing in the world famous "Le Mans Classic".
