Constructed in 1987 by Jim Marland – the founder of Proteus – this delightful example successfully evokes the character of the amazing C-Type which won Le Mans in 1951 and 1953.
Finished in Flag Blue – forever associated with the successful Ecurie Ecosse team – the car, like the originals, is powered by the wonderful 3.4 Litre XK unit, but installed with Triple SU 2″ carburettors and runs through a correct Moss 4-speed gearbox with Overdrive on 4th. The car is also installed with a live rear axle (instead of IRS as found on so many replicas) and runs on 16″ rims. Its alloy body tub is finished with GRP Bonnet & Tail panels
With a substantial and comprehensive history file it is evident that this super Proteus C-Type has been very well owned and maintained by its previous owners and we are confident that it will provide as much enjoyment for its future custodians as it has for the past 33 years!
