Jaguar is Bringing Back the C-Type, and the First One Has Already Been Built

Jaguar is Bringing Back the C-Type, and the First One Has Already Been Built

Seven more units will follow

Jaguar unveiled the C-Type in 1951 and production ended in 1953. But, despite the two years production run only 53 C-Type units were built, 43 of which arrived at private owners, mostly in the U.S. As you can imagine, finding one is very difficult, and when you do it gets very expensive. Usually, the C-Type is being sold at auction for more than $5 million. But now Jaguar has a solution: as part of the C-Type 70th anniversary, the company decided to build the C-Type Continuation - a model built to the original specs using data from the brand’s archive and by scanning an original model. Only eight will be built, and after more than a year of development, the first unit is finally ready to hit the road - just in time to celebrate 70 years since the C-Type won the Reims Grand Prix Meeting on 29 June 1952.

This Shelby Cobra Replica Is So Good, You Can’t Tell It Apart from the Original

Can a well-executed replica really be a worthy substitute to the million-dollar Shelby Cobra?

While every car enthusiast wants a piece of this American automotive history, not everyone can afford the seven-figure price of an original Cobra. Because of this, the Cobra is the most replicated car in the world. But just how close can a replica get to the original? Hagerty gives the answer in an episode of the Appraiserwhere a top-of-the-line continuation car is being featured, in order to determine its market value.

Only 50 units will be built, and each will come with supercar-like prices

In 1972, BMW unveiled the 3.0 CSL as a lighter version of the 3.0 CS (hence the L in the CSL name). Only 1,265 units were built, but none of these units were sold in the States.
