Proteus - C-Type Price: POA

Last Updated On: 05/08/2019

The Proteus C-Type is a faithful recreation of an iconic 1950s racing car, built to an extremely high standard in strong Superformed aluminium, using components that ensure modern reliability.

This beautiful car is powered by a fully rebuilt Jaguar 4.2 litre 6 cylinder XK engine, utilising a bespoke engine management system which gives great throttle response and better fuel economy, while retaining the look, torque and sound of the classic Jaguar straight six. The Tremec Borg Warner T5 manual 5-speed gearbox drives through a modern and lightweight limited slip differential and the drive ratios selected by Proteus are optimised for a mix of performance driving and cruising.

On the outside, silver painted 72 spoke wire wheels and a polished stainless steel side exit exhaust system complete the strong heritage look, while the interior has bucket seats, tunnel, side and rear trim in Andrew Muirhead leather with a Motolita four spoke polished stainless steel and wood rimmed steering wheel.

The Proteus C-Type is a fully road legal, high performance sports car, with full Full European IVA Approval and is therefore registerable in European Union Countries.
