Speedyweenie, you win the prize, this is indeed a C-Type Jag.

Same exact car in fact.

QUOTE Now I'm confused.

No need. It was just to show what the car looks like, not the exact livery of the Mille Miglia Moss car. I am not sure if it is really necessary for MMK to make the exact MM car since it is easy to change the livery for anyone with a decal sheet.
