Jaguar C-Type to F-Type – An (almost) short video History

Submitted by on July 29, 2014

Jaguar C-Type to F-TypeThe F-Type might be Jaguar’s latest and greatest, however it owes its DNA to a long line of racing bred sportscars. Starting at the Jaguar C-Type and D-Type, let’s go right back…

Jaguar’s latest F-Type comes from a long bloodline of Jaguar sports cars, born during a time when cars were built for racing first, and then converted for road-use later if they were lucky. Starting with the Jaguar C-Type and making it’s way through both the D and E-Types, this video by X-Car lays the Jaguar Sports car ancestry out on the tarmac at once, and explains what makes each such a special piece of Jaguar history.
