Fantastic book telling the story of the celebrated lightweight Jaguar C-type, chassis number XKC 051, that Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt drove to victory in the 1953 Le Mans 24 Hours.

Author: Phillip Porter & Chas Parker

Pages: 320

Published: 2017

Format: Hardback


The development of the C-type is described, focusing on the three lightweights of 1953 with thinner-gauge aluminium bodies, pioneering disc brakes, and aircraft-style fuel tanks.

All this is covered in fascinating detail, supported by interviews with drivers and mechanics, a fine collection of period images and studio photographs.
