This period correct 1951 specification tool room C-Type was built by Hawker Racing
over three years 2018-2021. The car was painstakingly built by Hawker (whose parent
company Hawker Restorations is a well-known restorer of Hawker Hurricane aircraft) to
be as close to an original C-Type as possible, facilitated by access to an authentic
original car for reference.

The engine is a Jaguar 3 1/2 litre unit with a C-Type head and twin sandcast two inch
SU carburettors, and was fine tuned by Carl Gannon. The car uses the correct Moss
gearbox, and the brakes are the correct 1951 C-Type specification drums. Jerry Booen
handled the detail finishing of the car and the fit, finish and detailing are all
outstanding. Power is estimated at around 245hp and the car weighs just over nine
hundred kilograms.

With the benefit of being currently road registered, this car presents its new owner
with the opportunity to relive the glory days of 1950s sports car racing on both road
and track.
