Jaguar stunned both the public and automotive press when they revealed the sensational new XK 120 to the world at the Earls Court Motor Show in London in late 1948. Designed to showcase the firm’s new 3.4-liter twin-overhead-camshaft XK engine, the XK 120 raised the standard by which all other sports cars would be judged. A new level of modern style, comfort, handling characteristics, and brilliant performance for British cars was established, making the Jaguar XK 120 one of the most desirable sports cars to own in the early 1950s, just as it is today.
This truly elegant 1951 XK 120 FHC with coachwork in a striking Aubergine finish and a gorgeous beige leather interior represents a rare opportunity to acquire a good, highly sort after Jaguar for the most discerning purchaser. A good investment and perfect for any classic automobile rally.
