Le Mans winning Jaguar and new Audi concept teased ...

Among the many anniversaries celebrated at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month was the 70th of the legendary Jaguar XK engine. For the occasion a dedicated class of six-cylinder engined Jaguars was present, with cars ranging from early XK120s through to a Lightweight E-Type. While almost all of these cars were Goodwood regulars, we were particularly impressed by the Jaguar C-Type in the line up. One of just three built to lightweight specifications ahead of the 1953 season, chassis XKC 051 was driven to the outright victory at Le Mans that year. It has been owned by some very noteworthy collectors and we had not seen it since 2003. Also featured are the two sister cars, one of which sold at auction for a staggering $13.2 million back in 2015.
Audi, meanwhile, have offered a first glimpse of the PB 18 e-tron show car due to be revealed during the Pebble Beach week later this month. The supercar concept is a further proof of the German manufacturer's new, electric direction.
