XKC053 - Le Mans 1953
#1 - Sydney 2002
Having 15 years experience in restoring al Jaguar models, particulary the XK range, along with staff of highly skilled tradespeople, the task of building the car didn't pose a problem and the quality would be second to none. The problem was finding the correct specifications and dimensions of all the numerous components unique to a C Type and suppliers for some of these components. The body, chassis, steering rack, suspension arms, torsion bars, engine sump, wheels, disc brakes and much, much more are all unique to a C Type and getting hold of the necessary technical information to reproduce these components was a major task.
#1, #2 & #3
After two years of development and research, the team at Concours had all the necessary information and contacts and were ready to get underway with the building of the exact 1953 Le Mans replica along with a second car, a "semi" 1953 Le Mans Replica fitted with readily available 45DCOE webers and Dunlop disc brakes but without the very expensive plessey pump boosting system.
