I think their only claim would be the name, "Jaguar C Type" and the Jaguar badges. As for the work of art angle I don't think that would have been a consideration back in the day. It was a pretty generic shape by all accounts, many racing cars from that era looked similar. I don't know how the work of art can be applied in retrospect just because that shape now has a value. BL took over Jaguar and then there was the BMW and Ford ownership. JLR were bought by TATA so I don't know if they even have authority to bring a case for such an old car design from the 1950's ? Its a bit of a tenues link and a case of clutching at straws !
