We are delighted to offer this exquisite, rather special Jaguar C Type Recreation onto the market. Starting life in the summer of 1955 as a home market supplied XK140, this outstanding Recreation was commissioned by Proteus CERA as their factory demonstrator, performing press duties Stateside in the early part of this century, with a class win at the Rodeo Drive Concours.ORW 281 is correctly configured with a single door, all aluminium body, finished in period Connaught Green and the interior beautifully finished with Apple leather seating, with silver Hardura trim to the transmission tunnel. The car features period original instruments, a full width Lexan screen and mohair tonneau cover.The C Type has correct original 16 inch wheels with curly hubs, 550 x 16 Blockley crossply tyres that were supplied in April at a cost of £1200 - including spare. Fabulously evocative, complete with the occasional ripple and visible rivet head, bearing witness to a life well lived, this amazing C Type has been forensically detailed and even features an October 1953 'RW' Coventry 'works style' registration number, period paddock tags, scrutineer passes and even a dash mounted Tourist Trophy St. Christopher that really do give a true feel of authentic 1950's motorsport.Running gear wise the Jaguar has a period-correct B series 3.4 litre engine, synchro non-overdrive 4 speed 'box, triple Webers and disc brakes, echoing the 1953 Le Mans cars. Set up for fast road use, this awesome machine has been a regular at the Le Mans Classic, Goodwood, Shelsley and Bicester Scramble. ORW 281 currently runs a minimally silenced exhaust, but also comes with a track friendly 105 DB silencer and 'Touring Kit' comprising Brooklands Aero Screens, bespoke luggage rack, mirrors and 4 point Luke harnesses; ready to fit. In May 2021 RH Classics went through the car, at a cost of £4500, fitting new wheel bearings, steering joints, engine mounts, water pump, belts, hoses, Hi-Torq starter and lightweight Dynator, refurbished rev counter, fuel gauge, new battery kill switch, rewired fan and a fresh differential. Needless to say, it's right on the button.A superb, detailed history file accompanies the car featuring a photographic record of the original Proteus build, its time Stateside in addition to numerous bills detailing specialist maintenance over the years. This year, the car has featured on the pages of both Octane and Car magazine - with copies of each included. With period-authentic DNA it is correctly registered as a Jaguar XK Convertible, declared manufactured 1955; classified Historic, so it is both tax free and MOT exempt. This really is a beautifully patinated, authentically presented war horse that's mechanically on the button. If you value period feel, this is a definitive example and one not to be missed. It has been sampled and much liked by Jaguar Chief Test Driver Norman Dewis whose signature sits proudly on the A panel to this day, one of so many great touches on this exciting machine.An all-alloy Proteus represents the absolute sweet spot of C Type Recreations, at half the price of an FIA rep, but delivering 100% of the thrill. Every journey evokes the Mille Miglia - the noise, smell and pace is intoxicating; spectacular and unrepeatable! Since 2007, it's been enjoyed by a handful of owners, covering just 16,000 miles and it is ready waiting its next adventure.
