    You can build a Suffolk C-Type Jaguar

    The business of Suffolk Sportscars exists to enable self build owners to build a beautiful Suffolk SS100 at home and over 350 cars have now been built by us and 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 ' by others in recent years.

    We aim to make our recreation of this most famous Jaguar as straightforward to build as our well established SS100. Please note that our car is exactly accurate in all bodywork dimensions as per the original Jaguar car designed by Malcolm Sayer. We believe these dimensions are fundamentally critical on the C-type. With almost every other C-type being made wider and longer than the original, the whole visual perception of the car is compromised. A correct C-type body has to be 5 feet wide, exactly.

    Our chassis is a copy based on the original car also. We do not use square box sections; the original was always tubular.

    Following your visit to our works at Woodbridge you can place an order with us for a £2500 deposit -  this will be credited to the cost of Delivery 1.

    We will agree when the chassis will be ready to be delivered to you.

    Delivery 1


    Chassis, front and rear brakes and suspension, steering, rear axle, fuel tank, wheels and tyres.

    Delivery 2


    GRP bodywork. The body will be first  made up and assembled completely on our own similar chassis here at the works. This can then be disassembled into 3 principal parts and delivered to you.
    Alternatively, following completing of the mechanical build-up of your car you can bring the rolling chassis to our works and we will build your body onto your chassis. 

    Delivery 3


    Engine, gearbox, carburettors and engine auxiliaries. Exhaust manifolds and silencers, radiator and cooling system items. Wiring loom and first fix electrical items.

    Delivery 4


    Instrumentation, body fittings including windscreen, seats, headlamp covers. Second fix electrical items seats and interior mirrors.
    All deliveries can be collected from us by the customer or delivered to your home.

    Registration of the Suffolk C-Type

    INF 26

    A number of Suffolk SS100 cars have been constructed under the Rules laid down in Booklet INF 26, issued by the Department of Transport. The Suffolk SS100 qualifies as a conversion because the car uses the brakes, suspension, steering, engine and gearbox from a single donor Jaguar XJ6. The donor car is over 10 years old. The new chassis is specifically designed and constructed to accept the components itemised above. Completed cars would require a new, current MOT certificate upon completion and an annual MOT test thereafter.

    I.V.A. (Individual Vehicle Approval)

    Cars built for use in the United Kingdom require a I.V.A. Test after completion. The test has been successfully applied to a large number of Suffolk  cars, which has passed all the I.V.A requirements. Cars that have passed the I.V.A. test are given the latest V5C Registration Document, showing the car as new. However, because the Suffolk SS100 uses an engine designed 30+ years ago, there are no onerous emission rules, and the car does not require a catalytic converter.

    Overseas Export Sales


    A large number of our cars are built and sold overseas. We are happy to crate and ship worldwide.You can also build the Suffolk SS100 using some donor parts sourced from the 1964-1969 Jaguar S-Type and Jaguar 420 models, which give the rebuilt cars an early date of manufacture. We have extensive stocks of Jaguar XJ6 parts to make up a customer's component requirements.
