An accurate Jaguar C type recreation with a coach built aluminium body. The car is beautifully finished and the workmanship is outstanding.
This beautiful accurate Jaguar C Type recreation has been built using what are widely known as the most accurate parts. The chassis is built by Suffolk Sports car to the correct "Works Specification" , along with the suspension, brakes fuel system, steering and radiator all being supplied by Suffolk Sports cars. The Aluminium body was constructed by Simon Isles Coachbuilding from the mould used by the Suffolk team. The 3.4 engine is an XJ6 unit from an early series, with a big valve injection head which has been ported and gas flowed. The inlet manifold is also ported and matched. The vernier cam timing has also been adjusted to give longer valve opening timings . The car is fitted with two SU Carburettors as were the 1951 Works cars. The bottom end has been totally rebuilt with new bearing and gaskets. The wiring loom was also supplied by Suffolk Jaguar. The car has travelled very few miles since completion and has to be seen. This beautiful Jaguar C Type represents fantastic value for money and is ready to be injured by its new owner.

The DB5 was essentially the next generation of the very successful DB4 with many improvements particularly in power, with the new 4.0 litre version of the Tadek Marek 6 cyl engine developing 280 bhp.
A new 5 speed gearbox and much improved brakes along with many other refinements made this a superb sports car at the time. Introduced in the summer of 1963, only 898 saloon cars and a mere 123 convertibles were built until October 1965, when production was given over to the DB6. The DB5 remains one of the most Iconic sports cars of all time!
