CMC 1953 Jaguar C-Type Golden Livery Limited Edition (300 Pieces)

Scale:1:18, Production Period: 1951-1953

From the very beginning, Jaguar had long-distance classics in the back of its mind, knowing how influential the marketing effect of a success at Le Mans would be. In the development of the C-Type, Jaguar put a premium on high reliability and good handling characteristics. Accordingly, great importance was attached to the fine-tuning of aerodynamics at high speed. For weight reduction, a tubular chassis was developed. Over the space frame was a thin aluminum body with only one driver´s door. These efforts paved the way for a surprising win at Le Mans in 1951.

The Lightweight model was outfitted with quite a few upgrades. Its engine was equipped with three twin-choke DCO3 40mm Weber carburetors and a fully synchronized gearbox, the body was made of ultra-thin aluminum sheets, and an aircraft-style rubber bag fuel tank was also installed. In addition, the Lightweight C-Type was the first to adopt the innovative Dunlop disc brakes and a servo amplifier for brake pressure assistance. For improved road-holding at Le Mans, the rear-end was reinforced with additional downforce exerted on the tail, and the front got a stronger anti-roll bar.

CMC has meticulously studied XKC 51, the 1953 winner from Circuit de la Sarthe. The result is a CMC-made miniature highlighting the impressive charisma and sporty dynamics of the original. This model is in stock now with limited units place your order today.
