Jaguar’s Newest Car Is Actually 70 Years Old

Eight more C-Types, the cartoon-like 1950s racing icon, are coming soon—and they’re not all spoken for yet.

Jaguar’s classics department has announced it will make eight more of the curvaceous C-Type that was originally produced from 1951 to 1953.

The continuation cars, set to converge on a special track day in 2022 to celebrate 70 years since the original release, will be the fourth of its kind for the Coventry, England-based company. Jaguar started developing Jaguar Lightweight E-Type and Jaguar XKSS continuation cars as far back as 2014; in 2018, it began building D-Type continuations.
