One of he new generation of Proteus C-Types started in 2011. Totally sorted and being a rare left hand drive example coming UK registered & with a valid UK V5 & cherished number plate.
The car incorporates the latest proteus tubular chassis giving a excellent rigidity and no compromise on maintaining the power to weight ratio. The car is bodied using all aluminium panels, doors, bonnet and boot recreating the sensuous curves of the 1951 Le Mans winning classic. The aerodynamic driven shape is arguably the most beautiful bodied 1950’s race car.

This is a powerful car with a beautiful exhaust note and 265bhp. An ECU enables the car to be remapped for fast road or track use but it’s equally happy pottering round town in a more sedate manner and driving in traffic.
