The Jaguar XK120 represents a milestone in automotive history, as Jaguar managed push the limits on what was perceived to be tangible in a road car. The first prototype car was shown in 1948 at the London Motor Show where it wooed the crowd, causing such a stir that instead of the original 200 units Jaguar was planning on building, they decided to put it into production. Its graceful, swooping lines made this car a stunning shape gaze upon, but where the XK120 really impressed its audience was its performance. The “120” stood for the 120mph top speed the car could reach and even go beyond with the windscreen off. This made the XK120 the quickest production car in the entire world at the time which was a massive feat for Jaguar. The XK120 featured a brand new 3.4L straight-six engine, with robust main bearings, an aluminum cylinder head and pistons. Producing 160bhp at 5,200RPM, the XK120 offered exactly what petrol heads were looking for in a sports car. The design was timeless, the performance was astounding, with the XK120 having both road and track applications. The example on offer is a 1953 Jaguar XK120 DHC, chassis number 677270, engine number W 8621-8, a matching numbers exa
The XK120 was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a testbed and show car for the new XK engine.. It caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The "120" in its name referred to its 120 mph (193 km/h) top speed (faster with the windscreen removed), which made the XK120 the world's fastest standard production car at the time of its launch. It was available in two open versions, first as the roadster (designated OTS, for open two-seater, in America), then also as a drophead coupé (DHC) from 1953 – and also as a closed, or "fixed-head" coupé (FHC) from 1951. The DHC was a more deluxe open model, with wind-up windows, and wood-veneer dashboard and interior door caps, as on the FHC. The roadster's lightweight canvas top and detachable sidescreens stowed out of sight behind the seats, and its barchetta- style doors had no external handles; instead there was an interior pull-cord which was accessible through a flap in the sidescreens when the weather equipment was in place. The windscreen could be removed for aeroscreens to be fitted. The drophead coupé (DHC) had a padded, lined canvas top, which folded

1950 Jaguar XK 120 Alloy Roadster s/n 670111, Engine no. W1216-8 Red with Tan Leather Interior It is difficult to encapsulate the enthusiasm that greeted Jaguar when, in 1948, they revealed the XK 120 to the British public and eventually the world. Even for the largely demure Brits, emerging from economic austerity following World War II, the XK120 caused quite a stir. The shocking and newly conceived XK 120 was nothing short of an earth-shattering revelation. This truly avant-garde car not only boosted morale among the weary UK population, it demonstrated to the world that Britain had not only the technical capacity in the automotive world but the fortitude to deliver a sensual and emotionally engaging car. Although originally intended to be a concept car showcasing Jaguars’ remarkable new twin-cam inline-6 cylinder engine, the breathtaking styling and genuine 120 mph performance, coupled with an affordable price, captured the imagination of the world. In short order, the largely hand-built aluminum-bodied car was rushed into limited production as orders came flooding in. With time and delivery pressures growing, Jaguar immediately realized they needed to reengineer the car for ma

The very special Roadster presented here is a faithful recreation of a famous car that is steeped in rich Jaguar automotive history. This XK-120 is a fantastic recreation of the famed LT1 factory roadster, and was the recipient of an exhaustive 15 year restoration by the top Jaguar professionals. The roadster remained in the US until September 1989, when it returned to England and began what was a lengthy restoration to its present appearance. Original parts were gathered over a 15-year period, which saw a chassis rebuild by John Wood, while Aubrey Finburgh recreated a correct one-piece aluminum body and mounted it on a tubular steel “birdcage” inner frame. The roadster features sporty and roomy alloy bucket seats, as well as collapsible, aerodynamic Brooklands style windscreens, along with a set of painted wire wheels that match the car's British Racing Green finish. The absence of the bumpers further enhances the sleek and sporty look of the car. The XK-120 is powered by a proper C-Type-spec engine with twin sand cast SU carburetors, while the front brakes are cooled by air scoops. The roadster’s running gear was fully overhauled, its electrical system was rewired, and the origin
Following the success of the Jaguar XK120s at the 1950 Le Mans 24hr race it was realised that with minimal engine tuning, a lighter chassis and a lightweight aerodynamically revised aluminum body shell the car would have a very real chance of success against its iconic opposition and thus the XK120C or C-Type was born. Whilst the front suspension was very similar to that of the XK120 the rear was completely redesigned and the braking was ultimately improved (for 1953) via the innovative four disc brake arrangement, and the exhaust valves were enlarged. These modifications along with many more resulted in a power output of a little over 200bhp. The C-Types were completed in time to compete in the 1951 Le Mans 24hr. At one point in the race the Jaguars held first, second and third place and it was only mechanical teething issues that prevented that from being the final result. Lynx Motor Cars was founded in 1968 principally to repair and maintain specialist sports and racing cars but quickly made their name restoring and maintaining original Jaguar C-Types, D-Types and E-Types. The evolution from restoration to recreation was a natural one and soon saw the introduction of its first L

(SOLD) This magnificently styled XK120 has lines and beauty way ahead of its time that begs to be driven and enjoyed.

This very stylish XK-120 roadster is a strikingly well-preserved example with a gorgeous color combination, exuding the pure beauty and elegance that is most often associated with Jaguar's XK-120 models.

The car is delivered with it's Jaguar Daimler Heritage Certificate, and includes a jack, rear wing spats, and Lucas driving lamps that more than complement its unique styling, illustrating the very essence of classic British motoring.
