The jaguar XK120, British’ icon, went in production after the succes of Jaguar’s concept study-car for the then new XK-engine that was showcased at the British International Motor Show in 1948. At that the time, the XK120 was the fastest production car and Jaguar named the car proudly after their achievement of 120mph or 192km/h (!).
Offered here is a classy yet sporty ’50 XK120 OTS roadster finished in Cream white with Biscuit tan interior and Sand brown softtop. The hard-to-find disc wheels that are partly covered by the spats in the back makes this XK120 look very elegant. But, appearances are deceptive. This XK120 might look like it won several concours, but it’s a purebred sports car. This XK120 from 1950 is one of the earliest steel-bodied XK’s the market offers, what makes this car really interesting fort he RT-drivers under us. It’s needless to say that this early XK120 is Mille Miglia eligible as well other events worldwide.
This Jaguar underwent an older qualitative restoration and thus finds itself today technically in perfect condition and has besides that a wonderful patina. Under the hood lays a well-known and very good running en -sounding XK-engine with original SU carburetors. The original and well sorted out Moss gearbox can’t be missing either. This car finds itself above as below, on the in- and outside in perfect condition. The original brake drums are supported by the adjustable gas dampers.
