Description of the original vehicle:
    Last year´s victorious C-Types were handed in April 1954 from Jaguar to the Ecurie Ecosse. There, the racers were repainted in the team colors "flag metallic blue" and provided with the team-typical stable cross stripes. David Murray successfully used the C-Type Lightweight in national races throughout the United Kingdom in the 1954/55 season, but also at international motorsport events. Drivers for the racing team were Ian Stewart, Bill Dobson and Sir James Scott Douglas. From 1955 on, Jimmy Stewart and Ninian Sanderson replaced Bill Dobson. The Ecurie won five races, scored four second places and four third places alone with the drivers Jimmy Stewart and Roy Salvadori. In total, the Scottish racing team scored eight victories in the season record. Winner of the race on May 1, 1954 in Goodwood was Jimmy Stewart with the C-Type Lightweight # 19, which served as a prototype for this CMC-model car.The Ecurie Ecosse sold its C-Type factory racers in October 1954 to bring in the start-up capital for the purchase of the brand-new D-Type cars Jaguar promised to supply early 1955. One of the C-Type was sold to Peter Blond, a British racing driver. He also raced XKC052 very successful: a second place in Goodwood and a fourth place together with Hans Davids at the sports car race in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, were the highlights. The car was present at the Jaguar cavalcades in Le Mans in 1991 and 1993 on the occasion of the Jaguar victories 1951 and 1953. The Jaguar C-Type has been one of the most sought-after historic racing cars in the last few decades, so it was only a matter of time before a Jaguar cracked the $ 10 million mark. At Pebble Beach in August 2015 it was overdue : Chassis XKC052 was sold by RM Sotheby’s for $ 13.2 million. The most expensive Jaguar of all time to date.
