34. 1951 Jaguar C-Type

Jaguar sent three -Types to LeMans in 1951. One won the race outright and all three contributed to speed records set during the event. The C, rightfully so, stands for competition. Just fifty-three of the cars were built, with 43 sold to private owners, the majority of whom called the US home. It boasted of 205 horsepower and won the Le Mans 24 hours race twice. The first title went to Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead, the other two C-Types had to retire due to a lack of oil pressure.
