Lot details

Registration No: JFZ 669
Chassis No: REALMXKC120052519

  • IVA tested Oct 2020 and correctly registered with the DVLA as a Realm
  • Well-specified including 4.2-litre DOHC straight-six engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox
  • Constructed between 2019-2020 with only 500 miles covered since the finalisation
  • Attractively re-shaped rear, achieving a closer look to the genuine C-Type than many other Realm evocations
  • Accompanied by build photographs, invoices and logbook

This Realm Heritage C-Type is constructed on the Realm tubular steel spaceframe chassis (not dissimilar in ethos to that of the Coventry manufacturer’s original design) with quality GRP bodywork. However, the bodywork on this example has been enhanced with aluminium over-cladding to provide the impression of an authentic build. Rather than utilising the 3.4-litre engine often attributed to Realm and other C-Type evocations, the vendor opted for a 4.2-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Specified with fuel injection using Jenvey Heritage Throttle bodies and Omex 710 controlling ignition, the engine is well-engineered to appear authentic, retaining the distributor and coil for appearance, with the 36-1 timing machined into the flywheel so that hidden from view, and featuring polished aluminium cam covers. Benefitting from servo-assisted Jaguar disc brakes all-around, the suspension is provided by the adjustable coil-over-shock suspension.

The interior has a period style to its appearance, hosting Mulberry leather interior seats and one-piece stitched transmission tunnel, super wool carpets, Black harness seat belts, Green back-lit LED instruments, chromed switches and a removable three-spoke Black leather rimmed steering wheel. Adjustable pedals are fitted for driver comfort, with Brooklands aero screens and a full-width fly screen protecting driver and passenger. Finished in Jaguar Racing Green with louvres let into the top and sides of the bonnet bodywork, the exterior appearance is completed with a Black double duck tonneau cover, aluminium flip-top fuel filler cap, 16” wire wheels with Avon tyres (including a spare), and leather bonnet straps are included but not currently fitted.

Benefitting from an immobiliser, the Realm passed its IVA test on the 12th October 2020 and is correctly registered with the DVLA as a Realm. Understood to have covered some 500 post-completion miles, the car started readily upon inspection and ran well during our recent photography session. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, numerous photographs relating build history and a large selection of invoices relating to expenditure on the C-Type.

PLEASE NOTE: Since the catalogue went to press, the vendor has kindly supplied us with nearly 800 images of the build. Copies can be sent to interested parties upon request.
