Welcome to our XK C-type, self build page
You can Self Build a Suffolk C-type.
The business of Suffolk Jaguar primarily exists to enable self build owners to build a beautiful Suffolk SS100 at home and over 150 have been built in this way by satisfied owners all over the world.
Our development of the Suffolk C-type Jaguar extends this facility to a second Jaguar model. Without doubt the C-type is hugely evocative of the 1950's period and has been much copied in past 15 years.
We aim to make our recreation of this most famous Jaguar as straightforward to build as our well established SS100.
Basic decisions will be as follows:
1) Do you want to source all the donor parts yourself or ask Suffolk to provide everything necessary.
2) Do you want Suffolk to carry out all the re-building of the donor components or do you have the expertise at home to carry out these functions.
