“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside” – Coco Chanel
Imagine yourself in the British extraordinary feeling. Dressed in your ‘tweed’ outfit with matching flat cap, you step into the elegant silver Jaguar XK120. Cruising through the rolling countryside in one of Britain’s most iconic sports car. That is, to say the least, the ultimate British feeling.
In the year 1948, Sir William Lyons introduced the beautiful piece. At the time, this caused a lot of sensation and revival, so much so that it was one of the most sought after sports cars of its time. Its name is partly due to its top speed of 120 miles per hour (fun fact: in 1951 the XK120 achieved a record speed of 132.6 miles per hour).
Subcutaneously equipped with a 3.4 liter inline six-cylinder which delivers a good 160 HP. This ensures that the Jag reaches 100 km / h within 8.5 seconds. Fascinating figures, repeat 1951!
Its fast, smooth lines and aerodynamic design make this an optically also magnificent. Striking is of course the long nose and connecting whipping fenders. These still let you, in whatever capacity the knees are, bend your knees to view this line of art. Driving is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the driver and other road users. In any case, we did not manage to get out without a smile.
Our copy was originally delivered in sunny Los Angeles. Gradually restored and technically in top condition. Equipped with a known past and documentation. Not to mention the incredibly beautiful combination of the completely red interior with the silver paint.
The Cool Classic Club would like to get in touch to see if you are the right new owner of this joyful Jaguar XK120.I'm interested in this object
