    The Jaguar C-Type – the sports car icon of the early fifties.

    The C-Type developed for use in motorsport from the XK120 was completely new except for the optimized engine. Jaguar won the overall victory in Le Mans twice with the C-Type. Between 1952 and 1955, racing teams with the C-Type won many (class) victories in national and international races. 53 copies of the C-Type were made in Coventry, including four lightweight chassis.

    CMC has studied Dr. Jenny’s C-Type (XKC 023) meticulously. The result is a CMC-made miniature highlighting the impressive charisma and sporty dynamics of the original.

    In his or her wildest dream, every collector hopes to be lucky enough to pull a car out of the barn in a rusty and dusty condition, but of so much importance that it would astonish the professional world. This was what happened to Dr. Christian J. Jenny and his C-Type XKC 023.Chassis XKC 023 was first delivered to Charles Hornburg, Jaguar’s US West Coast importer in late 1952, and it was directly transferred to Joe Henderson, a Jaguar dealer in Seattle.


    In August 1953, the car took part in a race for the first time — the Seattle Seafair 100-mile race, and it was driven by Bill Pollack and Jack Douglas. The latter was a comedy writer and television producer, well-known for his close relationship with Hollywood celebrities, including Mitzi Gaynor, leading star of “South Pacific”. Jack Douglas became the first owner of the sleek, fast XKC 023, and he took every opportunity to show off his vehicle and girlfriend. Also, racing was in his blood, so the C-type was frequently and successfully used in local racing events. After an accident, in which XKC 023 took considerable damage on the body side, the interest of the amateur racing driver in his C-Type dwindled.


    The vehicle remained on the US West Coast. In 1962 it came into the possession of Frank Schierenbeck, owner of a repair shop for European sports cars. With him, the C-type stayed until 1997, but knowledge about its whereabouts had faded into obscurity from the mid-sixties. Search for the missing Chassis XKC 023 began in 1986, and the car was found in 1997, albeit in a state of disassembly. In November 2000, XKC 023 was put together once more. Hardly completely restored, it participated in the Mille Miglia Storica 2001 with Jenny/Werdenberg at the wheel. Two years later, Dr. Jenny took XKC 023 to the celebrations in honour of the C-Type win at Le Mans 1951. In May 2006, the vehicle received the coveted FIA heritage certificate.

    Following information courtesy of the CMC:

    On June 14th 1936, Auto Union sent its best driver Bernd Rosemeyer to compete in the famous Eifel race at the Nürburgring, driving an Auto Union Type C with starting #18. This event became one of the most memorable fog-races at the Nürburgring. It consisted of 10 laps for a total distance of 228 km. The race was dominated by three prominent drivers of the time from the very beginning. Leading the way was Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes W25, next came the veteran warrior Tazio Nuvolari in an Alfa Romeo P3, and behind him was Bernd Rosemeyer in a Type C. After the 3rd round Nuvolari surpassed Caracciola to take the lead. But Rosemeyer was catching up steadily. Following a shock absorber failure that forced Caracciola to retire, a thrilling duel for victory unfolded between Nuvolari and the daredevil Rosemeyer.

    True to his nickname, Rosemeyer endeavored to become the undisputed front-runner by the 7th round.  At a significant distance behind him was Nuvolari, running in the 2nd place. During the 8th round, however, something unforeseen happened. With the sudden descent of a heavy fog, the Nürburgring was enveloped in an impenetrable wall of mist. Visibility was reduced to less than 20 meters! And what did Rosemeyer do? This crazy guy kept going full speed ahead. With a seriously blurred vision, he had to rely on his route memory of the course, a 7th sense for orientation, and an undaunted spirit to win the race. A legend was born.

    Bernd Rosemeyer went down in racing history as the “Fog Master.” Auto Union was setting a new benchmark that put an end to the dominance of Mercedes Benz.

    Hill climbs always offer a variety of exhilaration in motor sport. They had become very popular by the 30’s, thanks to an increasing number of Grand-Prix race cars getting involved. Befittingly Auto Union held a special position, as they had an extraordinary skilled driver Hans Stuck, who was acclaimed to be “King of the Mountains” owing to his numerous hill-climbing victories.

    The legendary hill-climb track at the Schauinsland Mountain near Freiburg was internationally famous. The first hill-climbing race took place there in 1925. In the following years the race grew to be an international competition, which often attracted more than 20,000 spectators during the golden era of the Schauinsland hill climbs in the 30’s.

    This was very true of the 13th Schauinsland hill climb during the Grand Prix of Germany; it took place on August 1st, 1937 and boasted a registration list of drivers from 10 different nations. Most noteworthy were the two top racing teams: Auto Union with Hans Stuck and Bernd Rosemayer and Mercedes-Benz with Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred von Brauchitsch and Hermann Lang. The race-track was 12km long, leading all the way to the top of Schauinsland Pass with 178 turns for drivers to negotiate and an ascent of 780 meters on slopes that could be 12˚ uphill.

    At the end of the race, Hans Stuck lived up to his nickname “King of the Mountains” and raced his Auto Union Type C with twin-tyre rear wheels and starting number 111 to be the winner by using one second less than his team mate Bernd Rosemayer. The latter was also on a Type C, but with single-tyre rear wheels. Mercedes-Benz didn’t have a chance that day. Rudolf Caracciola and Hermann Lang, each on a W125, finished 3rd and 4th.

    Back then the drive-axle was often fitted with twin tyres in order to improve the transmission of motor torque onto the road. This resulted in better traction and made it easier to control the veer-off forces in narrow hill curves. But ultimately, it was not only the engine power, but also the driving skills and, above all, the cornering technique of a pilot that were essential for winning the victory.

    This museum quality, hand-crafted piece of diecast metal precision model is a replica of Hans Stuck’s winning vehicle with starting number 111 and twin-tyre rear wheels.
