1950 JAGUAR XK 120 - SOLD

When the Jaguar XK120 Roadster was first shown to the public it stunned the world with its gorgeous looks and its advanced design and mechanical features. This car has become one of the most alluring classic cars of all time and here we have a beauty in gleaming black paintwork with stunning burgundy and tan leather interior and matching plush burgundy carpet. This XK120 is one of the originals which has the chrome outside sidelights, the steel wheels, the hub caps and the removable spats covering the rear wheel arches, which really enhance the classic streamlined look of this very special car, it is known to be called “Grace in Motion”.

The original standard 3.4 litre straight six engine with alloy cylinder head and twin side draft SU carburettors and dual overhead-cam was comparatively advanced for a mass-produced unit. With standard 8:1 compression ratio it developed 160 bhp (119 kW) and due to this plus its streamlined body the XK120 became the world's fastest most beautiful machine for a standard production car at the time by getting up to an unheard of 120 mph (193 km/h) top speed hence the "120" in its name. The roadster version became a very popular race car, winning many races all over the world in its early years and it still continues to be raced to day in historic race meetings making it a crowd favourite.
