Car lovers all over the world are waiting for the RM Auctions Sports & Classics of Monterey event with bated breath. Held between August 13 and 15 in California, this one is sure to be grabbing headline with the rare and exquisite beauties that it has in participation. You can very well expect anything from the likes of the historic 1952 Jaguar C-Type race car that had the legendary Phill hill as its owner when he won the Jaguar C-Type’s first North American racing victory.
A little research told us that this car is one of the 53 cars that were originally built and delivered to America. With a designation of XKC-007, the car was shipped to 1952 and immediately driven to Elkhart Lake in Winsconsin. It is there that the car made its racing debut as part of Jaguar’s North American sales pitch campaign.
But that is not where the car rested its laurels. As a matter of fact, it went on to win at Torrey Pines too the very same year. Since then the car has had several owner but now it is up for auction. By the way, did we tell you that the car also displays the signature of Phill Hill?
